Four Italian winegrowers live a life we all dream of: Giovanna Tiezzi and Stefano Borsa in their con- verted 11th century monastery and winery in Tuscany; Corrado Dottori and Valerio Bochi, refugees from industrial Milan in their grandfather's farmstead in the magical Marches; ex-librarian Elena Pantaleoni working her father's vineyards in Emilia; and then Stefano Bellotti, a radical farmer poet, disrupting everyone's rules from his avant-garde farm in the Piedmont. But these protagonists of a rapidly spreading European natural wine revolution have encountered fierce resistance. Ten years after his seminal documentary Mondovino, Jonathan Nossiter discovers the wine world has changed just like the world itself. The enemy is now far greater than the threat of globaliza- tion. But these natural wine rebels offer a model of charmed and joyous resistance. Natural Resistance mixes documentary and fiction in the hope of stirring the hidden rebel inside all of us.
