Barolo Boys – The Story of a Revolution
Directed by Paolo Casalis and Tiziano Gaia
For the first time on the big screen, this film tells the fascinating story of Barolo wine and how it exploded as a world phenomenon. Now one of the most famous red wines in the world, 30 years ago Barolo was unknown even in its production region, the beautiful Langhe in northwestern Italy. Barolo’s current success is mainly due to the courage and initiative of a group of small-scale wine producers, the so-called “Barolo Boys.” Igniting a fierce controversy between different generations and different ways of thinking, as one of the film’s characters asks, “What revolution has ever been successful?” The film traces the short but intense trajectory of a group of producers who indelibly changed the world of wine.
With Carlo Petrini, founder and president of Slow Food, Oscar Farinetti, creator of Eataly and Joe Bastianich, celebrated American restaurateur, TV personality, winemaker, wine writer and Master Chef judge, appearing for the first time on the big screen, among others.
A selection of Special wine from the Campania Region are available for purchase by the glass.
