The Monks of Vina
John Beck's new documentary on the historic Vina winery will show. Having just purchased one of the few remaining new copies of the one and only book on Vina ($125!) this month and having visited Vina for the first time in Sept., I am very much looking forward to seeing this film on a piece of wine history people don't really remember.
Here's the movie trailer.
The Monks of Vina from Beck Media Productions on Vimeo.
