About the Movie
From the director and team that brought you SOMM, the celebrated documentary behind the quest of four individuals studying to pass one of the most difficult tests you’ve NEVER heard of, comes the sequel –‘SOMM: Into the Bottle’. Viewers are taken beyond the exam and down the wine (bottle) rabbit hole. The world’s most famous winemakers and sommeliers unravel what makes wine the most compelling elixir, a beverage that is uniquely intertwined with the history of mankind. ‘SOMM: Into the Bottle’ brings viewers a rare and never before seen glimpse inside the private world of both famed and cult winemakers, such as Jean Louis Chave, Aubert de Villaine (Domaine Romanee-Conti), and Robert Mondavi. Viewers get to watch as some of the most storied bottles of wine are opened; in some cases less than a dozen are left in the world. The history, the vintage, and the magic of these bottles are discussed by the best in the business. The film also tackles wine as it intersects with politics, pleasure, world war, natural disasters, religion, and the age old question, “Can a bottle be worth thousands of dollars or is it just great marketing?” One of the most ambitious films on the subject, ‘SOMM: Into the Bottle’ shows you that the world of wine is nearly endless and that it is almost impossible to quench your thirst for knowledge. So sit back, open a bottle and enjoy as we take you “into the bottle” and back again.
A joyful, enlightening film
I already can't wait to watch this again. Like Somm, there's plenty for both newbies and oenophiles to love. I dorked out over certain people and producers and marveled at the chateaux, landscapes, and cellars. It's a film that is ready to drink now, but will be worth revisiting for years to come.
After watching SOMM, assuming you're an active wine fan/student, you wanted to see & hear more. I was certainly thirsty for the story to continue after that movie. Well, "SOMM: Into the Bottle" delivers.
This is not Part 2 of SOMM, although a lot of the same "stars" of the first film are featured (Fred Dame, Ian Cauble, Dustin Wilson, Brian McClintic, et al). Reaching deeper into the world of wine, "Into the Bottle" discusses wine's origins, how it's made, food-wine pairing and so much more.
This is such a wonderful film. Great conversations, insights, lessons, history, myriad anecdotes about wine and WOW, the cinematography is (again) gorgeous. Jason Wise and his crew have delivered another beautifully shot film. Incredible locations are in every scene, vineyard landscapes or dark cellars, the sights are awe inspiring.
I'm sure that I'll be watching it a few more times.
So... Mr Jason Wise, what's next?!
Loved it! Educational. Entertaining. Great sequel
