An enlightening documentary that can be really absorbing, showing us the art involved in winemaking and how wine has been turning into an economic investment due to its always increasing demand - especially from China - leading to an unprecedented impact on the market.

I haven't had this must fun learning from a documentary in quite a while, and this feature-length film was a pleasant surprise. 75 minutes of learning about french winemaking, geography, globalization, and the volatility of supply and demand.

A truly fascinating portrait of the wine industry of Bordeaux, and the fickle love/hate relationship that their biggest buyers in China have with it.

One of the most fascinating and entertaining documentaries I've ever viewed. The newly, fabulously wealthy Chinese have been bidding up wines of the Bourdeaux region for the last several years and making it no longer accessible to most in the West.
A fascinating look at two of my favorite things: wine and markets.

A poorly made film that leaves you feeling like not everyone should make a documentary.

This is a pretty interesting film about the wine industry in China. Some of the film looks at the 2009 & 2010 vintage years of French Bordeaux red wine. Chinese investors bid up the price of these unusually good years to very high prices. The effect was to price other players out of the market place.
The film touches upon the very large number of billionaires and millionaires in China. One very wealthy businessman is shown to have made his money manufacturing sex toys. He has a very large wine collection.
The Chinese are also seeking to establish their own home-grown wine industry. This activity includes buying French chateaus and moving them for reassembly in China. They are also buying French wine growing lands and taking over their operations.
One wine growing investor is attempting to grow grapes in an area of China with severe weather extremes. This requires the vines to be buried to survive harsh winters. Workers then have to dig them up again in the spring. This seems like less than a winning business plan.
This was a very intriguing documentary.

Why can't I rate a movie zero stars? This movie is absolutely insane! The very rich, making a documentary about themselves. I cannot imagine who this was made for. Folks involved in this movie don't even watch TV.
