Wine films

There are several well-known films based on the drinking or making of wine or the wine industry itself. They range from American comedy-drama Bottle Shock (featuring Alan Rickman as wine expert Steven Spurrier), buddy-movie Sideways and book adaptation A Good Year to smaller pictures such as the controversial Mondovino, mockumentary Corked and French hit Vagabond.

Individual wines have also featured on the big screen including Chateau Margaux in Withnail & I and Sherlock Holmes, Chateau Latour in Monty Python’s Meaning of Life, Chateau Angelus in James Bond Casino Royale and Veuve Clicquot in Casablanca.

In May 2012 it was announced The Billionaire’s Vinegar is to be turned into a motion picture starring Brad Pitt.
