Does wine have an expression of a soul? Is the wine eager to please, sort of in your face shouting HERE I AM!! and a narcissist… or is it showing it’s sense of place, a story of belonging somewhere, a soul? Does the wine make one slow down and pay attention to details or is it a loud sensory experience or instant gratification? Consider whose signature is on the wine: the brand, the region, the winemaker, the terroir, the wine consultant.
While watching Mondovino (2004), which can be found on YouTube, these questions about the wine industry struck home with me. It’s an artful documentary which expresses this very issue. While watching this movie, I saw that some wines made today have become soul-less. Watch this movie, see what you think, leave a comment. Anyone interested in wine will enjoy the information here.
