A Must See Film!
4 March 2017 | by don-592See all my reviews

Gifted filmmaker Rudi Goldman has done it again! This is a stunningly beautiful film, that is not just about wine, but about the culture, and the people, and their passion for the centuries old lifestyle and celebrations surrounding wine-making. The film has won numerous awards, because it brilliantly captures the essence and the beauty of a region and a people, whose livelihoods, lifestyles and love of wine and food are expertly portrayed by Goldman. If you're looking for a fast paced adventure flick, this is not the movie for you. If you are intellectually curious, and appreciate quality filmmaking, outstanding visuals, interesting interviews, and the opportunity to learn about wine, and Burgundy, in particular, this film is a must see!
