Storyline

Ten years after the landmark wine documentary Mondovino, filmmaker Jonathan Nossiter returns to the subject, documenting the drastic shifts that have affected the industry in the time since. This time, the threat is no longer globalization, but an individual society. Natural Resistance follows four Italian winegrowers who live the life we all dream of: Giovanna Tiezzi lives in a converted 11th century monastery, and grow grains, fruit, and wine in a way that links to their ancient heritage. Corrado Dottori is a refugee from industrial Milan, who inherited his grandfather's farmstead and tends to it as an expression of agricultural social justice. Elena Pantaleoni works her father's vineyards and strives to create a utopian reality. Finally Stefano Belloti, the controversial radical farmer poet, disrupts the long established rules of farming from his avant-garde property in the Piedmont. Each of these farmers have encountered a fierce resistance as they struggle to make their dreams of...

A huge disservice to the natural/organic wine movement
15 February 2016 | by francesco-522-145373See all my reviews

I am a wine enthusiast and huge fan of the natural/organic wine producers, thus I had high hopes for this movie.

Unfortunately, this movie depicts only a small portion of the natural wine community. You see here portrayed only a few Italian producers (what about France? or Spain?), all coming from the same cultural background of the Italian left party. All filled with a sort of nostalgia for a Communism that never really arrived in Italy.

Instead of talking about natural wine and what it means for producers and consumers, the movie indulges in giving space to conspiracy theories and peculiar views on life in general.

This movie damages the natural wine movement as it portray is as something led by a few odd leftists with delusional ideas.

Fortunately, natural wine is much more than this.
