Storyline

The film follows seven wine-making families in the Burgundy region of France through the course of a full year, and delves into the cultural and creative process of making wine, as well as its deep ties to the land. What lies within the rhythm of a year, from vines to grapes to wine? The film is in four season-sections, and plays out against that backdrop: spring showers, drought, heat wave, hail and storms, harvest moons and the damp cold of winter. Each vintage is a time capsule, a bottled piece of history of a very specific year, with its particular weather pattern, its crises and its triumphs. It all goes in, whether you want it to or not, and 2011 was full of drama. Written by Anonymous

How to enjoy a good Sunday and get it close to perfection? A Year in Burgundy
8 November 2013 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

It is a weekend, winter is around, fireplace is on, snow arriving…. Missing the charm of those summer holidays, the joy of traveling…

Stuck to the sofa, want to enjoy and relax in the same time.

How to enjoy a good Sunday and get it close to perfection?

Just put your slippers on, and get down to your wine cellar, pick a bottle of good Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from Burgundy, on the way back to the sofa grab quickly a good wine glass and a corkscrew.

Then you can get the movie A Year in Burgundy either online on ITunes or get the DVD.

You will fly off to Burgundy for less than a plane ticket. map burgundy vineyard

The movie is done kind of documentary following San Francisco-based wine importer Martine Saunier and seven of her wineries – Domaine Leroy, Domaine Perrot-Minot, Domaine Morey- Coffinet, Domaine Bruno Clavelier, Domaine Mortet, Domaine Michel Gay & Fils, and Dominique Cornin – across the 2011 vintage year.

The kind of movie-docu that you get definitely get stuck to, inspiring wine makers, different ways of thinking, opposite wine making styles, but all resulting in well known top quality wines.

Displaying various philosophy of creating a living liquid that will often print your memory for ever. harvest burgundy Opening eyes, bringing knowledge to the viewer without him noticing he is learning a good trick ;)

Not only decrypting wine and wine makers, but also pulling the Burgundy traditions and bon- vivant feeling in front, with local parties, tastings, cellars, winemaker families, generations…

Described as evocative, entertaining, rich, opulent, but still tied to traditions & roots, wine region we all envy & dream. Delicate balance of education, history, humanity, nature & personalities – Cheers to you all !
