Natural Resistance review – rebels and refuseniks of viticulture

18 June 2015 1:45 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Documentary-maker Jonathan Nossiter revives the debate he started 10 years ago as he talks to the passionate revolutionaries among Italy’s wine-growers

More than 10 years ago, Jonathan Nossiter’s documentary Mondovino introduced many (including me) to an ongoing debate in the world of viticulture, which resonated in agriculture, and culture generally. Is wine being insidiously standardised? And made flavourless and joyless, like the food we eat? Now Nossiter returns to the subject with a film that is more emphatically about the rebels and refuseniks. He talks to passionate independent winegrowers in Italy, low-tech revolutionaries who are working outside the soulless system; their wines don’t conform, sometimes priced radically low. All this revives the debate about identity and terroir from the first film; you could compare it to Britain’s real ale movement. One producer complains that the certification system is creating a world in which everything is Macdonaldizzato – homogenised, like burgers. »
