Movie Info

Filmmaker Emily Railsback and sommelier Jeremy Quinn provide intimate access to rural family life in the Republic of Georgia as they explore the rebirth of 8,000 year old winemaking traditions almost lost during the period of Soviet rule. By using unobtrusive iPhone technology, Railsback brings the voices and ancestral legacies of modern Georgians directly to the viewer, revealing an intricate and resilient society that has survived regular foreign invasion and repeated attempts to erase Georgian culture. The revival of traditional winemaking is the central force driving this powerful, independent and autonomous nation to find its 21st century identity.

  • A slightly tipsy, thoroughly charming documentary about winemaking in post-Soviet Georgia.

  • Oenophiles may swoon over the delicious native varietals that tease Quinn's palate, but Railsback's thin and disorganized documentary doesn't go down so smoothly.

  • "Our Blood Is Wine" boasts a fascinating subject, and a commendable desire to redefine the romance of winemaking away from European-bred elitism; unfortunately, it's a haphazard tasting.

  • A great introduction to Georgian culture that is as rich and a beautiful as the country itself. Notwithstanding Stalinism and post-Stalinist economic malaise, the nation lives.

  • A documentary with far more on its mind than fermented grape juice, though it sometimes seems at a loss for what to say and when to say it."
