First screened in May 2014
Director: Jonathan Nossiter. Globetrotting survey of the international business of wine production, to include shifts in the industry and rivalries among wine-producing nations, companies, and families.

Twitter Capsule: Some easy targets; needlessly long. Still, film captures piquant human details while framing an industry in human terms.

VOR:   Wine devotées may find themselves smitten. So might people who enjoy 15-page, lightly comic, quasi-contemplative human interest sagas in The New Yorker. Others? Unclear.
