All Ages
Four determinedly optimistic refugees compete in the World Wine Blind Tasting Championships as Zimbabwe’s first-ever representatives. From the makers of Red Obsession (SFF 2013).
Since the mid-'90s millions of Zimbabweans have fled their country's economic woes. Joseph, Tinashe, Marlvin and Pardon have ended up in South Africa. While working in Cape Town restaurants they develop an interest in wine. The quartet become sommeliers, meet and form a team to compete in the so-called ‘Olympics of the wine world'. Twenty-four mainly European countries will be vying for the prestigious award. Each team must sample 12 different wines and guess the country, winery and vintage. Australian directors-producers-writers Warwick Ross and Rob Coe work together again on a delightful wine-related documentary, following this determined foursome as they practice their tasting skills and set out for France to proudly represent their country.
