Carmine Ametrano is one of the few remaining farmer practicing traditional wine-making on the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius in southern Italy. It’s a technique that goes back to the ancient civilisation of Pompeii. By following Carmine through the course of a year’s harvest, this documentary will explore the inherent hard work and beauty of his wine making. Carmine is just a one craftsman whose tradition is in danger of disappearing. This film will act as a representation of all dying traditions across the world.
