Wine and romance are both uncorked in this delightful journey into Niagara’s spectacular wine country. The film was shot in various locations, including several wineries, a B&B and a restaurant–keep your eyes open to spot the locale–and employed dozens of local cast and crew. The film celebrates the region while not glossing over the work required keeping a relationship strong. While Niagara Falls has enjoyed the moniker “Honeymoon Capital of the World” since the early 1900s, amour seems trickier for the couples in The Colossal Failure of the Modern Relationship. Love in the new millennium is harder to balance—how do you keep a fine vintage relationship from turning to plonk? – Kate Yorga

Red Obsession the newest in films about the wine industry! Simply fascinating and fabulous! This movie examines the bubble created by China's infatuation with Bordeaux. The Red Dragon is awake and they are in love with all things wine! If you love wine , you'll love this film!

Narrated by Russell Crowe, Red Obsession offers an in-depth documentary investigation of a prized global commodity in times of enormous economic change, and an intoxicating meditation on its enduring mystique and allure. 

Coveted by oenophiles worldwide, the wines of France's Bordeaux region have been legendary for centuries. Though having long endured the vagaries of climate, the winemakers of Bordeaux now find themselves subjected to another tempestuous, uncontrollable force: the massive sea change in the global financial markets, which has seen the cash-strapped West — long the primary export market for Bordeaux — superseded by China, whose insatiable thirst for the illustrious vintage has turned the wine market on its head.

Red Obsessionopens at TIFF Bell Lightbox on Friday, September 27, 2013.

This week we attended the Wolf Blass 2012 Luxury Collection Release wine dinner at the stunning Malaparte Restaurant located at the TIFF LightBox.

Wolfie, or the “Cool Wolf” as we nicknamed him last night, he really is a “dude” who appreciates living life to the fullest, embracing sports, he still skis, the arts, culture and of course amazing food and wines was totally engaging as he orated standing on the chair about the history, the present and the future plans of the company he founded over 46 years ago in 1961.

The Luxury Collection features four classic wines from three stellar vintages.
