Mondovino’s book sequel

Jonathan Nossiter is a film-maker who first came to the attention of wine lovers when he released his epic hand-made documentary Mondovino about five years ago. Mondovino irritated many winemakers and merchants because of its blatant bias against big companies, modern wines, the New World, and ‘industrial’ or mass-produced wine. But others, like me, enjoyed its colorful, thoughtful, occasionally whimsical, opinionated but above-all heartfelt look at wine. And its highlighting of some great wine producers. By all accounts Mondovino was a massive box-office failure, but it sure got people talking.
