Synopsis

'Barolo Boys: The Story of a Revolution'. 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 (nominated UNESCO World Heritage SIte) 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.” In the optimistic Eighties, these winemakers upset the quiet world of the Piedmontese countryside and brought about a revolution in Italian wine, igniting a fierce controversy between different generations and different ways of thinking. After almost 30 years, what is left of that experience? As one of the film’s characters asks, what revolution has ever been successful? 'Barolo Boys: Story of a Revolution' traces the short but intense trajectory of a group of producers who indelibly changed the world of wine. Winner DOC Wine Travel Food Prize 2014. Winner Most Festival. Official Selections: Vancouver Film Festival 2015, Wine Country Film Festival California 2014, Overlook Festival Rome, Kinookus Festival Croatia, Corto e Fieno Festival, Valladolid International Film Festival, ICFF Toronto.
