"Natural Resistance" has received rave reviews at showings in France and Italy and at the Berlin Film Festival - Chambers Street Wines and Racines NY are very proud to welcome Jonathan and his new film to New York - this will be a vibrant evening of wine and cinema!

Doors will open at 6PM with a complimentary glass of Pet Nat and bar snacks, followed by a screening of "Natural Resistance" at 7PM. After the film, guests will receive a glass of 2009 Pacina Toscana followed by a brief Q and A with Mr. Nossiter and a three course dinner by Chef Frederic Duca. A selection af natural wines by estates featured in the film will be available for purchase and of course the superb wine list of Racines will be available as well. Jonathan will be present throughout for more discussion and comment.
