New Wine Doc: A Year in Burgundy

If you can't make it to the Napa Valley Film Festival, you might want to indulge your film longings with this enchanting documentary about life in France's Pinot Noir and Chardonnay heartland - Burgundy. 

The film is called A Year in Burgundy. Here's the trailer.

Don't miss the wonderful quote from Lalou Bize-Leroy, the noted Burgundian grande dame, whose family owns Domaine de la Romanee-Conti. She established her own Domaine Leroy with all biodynamic vines, which prospered while her neighbors withered with mildew in the wet 2007 and 2008 seasons.

"You have to be a part of the life of the vine and the life of the soil, too," she says (in French).

Enjoy the trailer:


The film is made by David Kennard (with whom I used to work when I made PBS documentaries for a living.)

The film is available on iTunes, Amazon and on DVD.
