Winner of Doc Wine Travel Food 2014
Now one of the most famous red wines in the world, 30 years ago Barolo was unknown even in its own region, the beautiful Langhe in north-western Italy. This Award-winning film tells the fascinating story of a group of friends who helped Barolo explode into a world phenomenon, the so-called Barolo Boys. In the optimistic Eighties, these winemakers upset the quiet world of the Piedmontese countryside, igniting a fierce controversy between different generations and different ways of thinking. After almost 30 years, what is left of that experience? As one of the film’s characters says, what revolution has ever been successful?
