10 films about wine. Ready? Sit back, take a glass of wine and … play!

Action! The wine and the camera, an intense relationship, made of close-ups and stories in the background. When the red passion meets the silver screen, stories of love, intrigues and thrillers take the breath away. Even the cinema, with its various forms of art, takes a good glass of wine and toast to its beauty.
