Films about wine, winemaking, wine drinking and wine marketing (possibly)

There are a surprising number of films made about the unwelcome effects of drinking -the Lost Weekend, and Withnail and I come to mind; and more where wine takes centre-stage- Sideways is well known, as are Mondovino, Somm, Red obsession and A good year.

I’ve ransacked my archives to provide a partial list of wine-relevant films, none of which curiously are available through the AWRI or Wine Australia, so there is a deep educational gap within the wine community..

  • The acid test
  • All creatures great and small
  • The birds
  • The colour purple
  • Do the right thing
  • Fires on the plain
  • Gone with the wind
  • The grapes of wrath
  • The greatest show on earth
  • Hail the conquering hero
  • How green was my valley
  • It’s been a hard days night
  • I walked with zombie
  • Lord of the flies
  • The miracle worker
  • Never give a sucker an even break
  • Red harvest
  • Red river
  • The ten commandments
  • The 39 Steps
  • The magnificent seven
  • True grit
  • The wild bunch
  • The wizard of Oz

These will repay close study.
