Awesome suggestion from Mary J!
Thursday, July 15 |
6:30 PM: wine tasting,
7:30 PM: Film: Mondovino.
Filmmaker Jonathan Nossiter focuses his lens on the international wine trade, travelling to France, California, Italy, and New York, speaking with winemakers both great and small. Nossiter meets the Mondavi family, the de Montille family of Burgundy, the Staglins, and critics James Suckling and Robert Parker, whose words can make or break a vintage. Although Nossiter set out merely to find the characters behind the wine industry, he ended up with a poignant look at some important issues, including deforestation, the corporation versus the independent company, and even communism. The result is an entertaining inside examination of a world very few people see, a fascinating exploration of wine and the families who produce it.
Runtime: 131 minutes. Preceded by a tasting of French wines presented by Michael Hughes, GM/Wine Club Director at Joe's Wines & Liquor.
