A Year in Burgundy

Browse these delectable French wines today.

A Year in Burgundy: Experience the year in the film, in four season-sections: 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.

In the film, get to know a half-dozen wine-makers: they are artists, whose personalities shape the flavor and style of the wines they lovingly craft. There is joy, fear, anxiety, triumph, and laughter in their experiences. With the Morey-Coffinets, meet three generations of wine-makers, and little two-year-old Celeste, the first of the fourth generation. Lalou Bize-Leroy, the uncrowned Queen of Burgundy – now in her eighties, still involved in every detail of her winemaking, creator of some of the best-renowned and most famous wines on earth.

The film is currently in post-production. A 90-minute theatrical version will be available for viewing summer 2012. Currently planned screenings include McMinnville, Oregon, July 27 - 29, 2012, during the 26th Annual International Pinot Noir Celebration (IPNC) and in London, UK, September 12, 2012, the World Premiere at BAFTA theater.

While we await the release, enjoy the trailer.
