Château Chunder from Down Under

Chateau Chunder A Wine Revolution is a witty and entertaining documentary that tells the recent history of Australian wine, revealing how a small group of enterprising Australian winemakers took on the elitist world of wine … and won. The starting point is the famous Python sketch – ‘This is a bottle with a message, and the message is ‘beware’. This is not a wine for drinking, this is a wine for laying down and avoiding’. And it was true. The idea that Australia could be a world class wine-making nation was a joke.

With humour and insight, this documentary features winemakers, marketers, merchants, critics and drinkers including Bruce Tyrrell, James Halliday, Max Allen (Australian wine critics), Chris Hancock (Rosemount), Sir Les Patterson (Cultural Attaché to Australia, a comical creation of Barry Humphries), Robert Parker (US wine critic), Oz Clarke and Jancis Robinson (UK wine critics).
