About the Movie
After an upstart winemaker's untimely death, his sister steps in to try and save his fledgling winery for his eight-year-old son: American Wine Story blends this with other tales of risk and reinvention for those who are born again into the wine industry.This feature documentary shows the transformative power of a humble beverage to fuel passion and reshape lives. Following dozens of winemakers and aficionados from all across the country to learn what drives them, and also trace some American wine history in the process. This is a film that aims to leave all audiences with a dash of inspiration to follow their own American Dreams, or at least pause and consider the story behind the bottle next time they pull a cork.
I thought this was going to be another gorgeous, interesting documentary about wine, but this one, unfortunately, moves at snail’s pace and is incredibly boring. Even the people who are being interviewed and are telling the story seem disinterested to be making the film and they all speak in monotone. This one was incredibly difficult to finish.
I thought this movie will be about American wine story. It turn out this movie is about a guy name jimmy. Me and my wife was already bored first 30 min had to turn off. Such a waste of money
Fascinating and engrossing
American Wine Story succeeds because the filmmaker Baker recognizes that his subjects are as passionate about their art as any novelist, painter, or poet; the only difference is that their medium is wine. He brings the same passion to his work as the winemakers do, and the result is terrific. I don't care that much about wine and I'm terrible at growing things, and yet while I was watching I could understand the lure that led these people to abandon what in some cases were lucrative careers and dedicate their lives to wine. The scenery is great, and the stories are well-balanced with a wide variety of perspectives. Anyone who loves wine should love this, as well as anyone who enjoys a well-made documentary.
