THREE STORIES IN BOTTLES

THREE STORIES IN BOTTLES

Italy / 2024 / 94 min / Italian with English subtitles / Comedy

Three stories about wine intertwine to become a film. In the first, a photographer will have to photograph “the smell of wine”; in the second, a rich young man will be punished by going to the harvest; in the third, a somber wine merchant over sixty will fall in love like a teenager with a fifty-year-old biologist. Wine solves and is at the center of all stories. Each bottle contains a story.

Giuseppe Gandini is perhaps best known for his on-screen performances (see below), however, he has had extensive writing experience and it shows in the fun, aromatic film.  It captures the spirit and flavors of Italy wonderfully.  Thanks to Guiseppe, the afterparty that features Italian food compliments of Gianni’s Restaurant, will also feature the three wines featured in the film.

itself its own narration, an ever-changing story that springs from the very nature of wine and the work that Man has poured into it for millennia.
