Product Description

THE LANGUAGE OF WINE offers an intimate and provocative glimpse into the daily world of winemaking in the great French winemaking region of Burgundy. The film presents interviews with some of the world's leading winemakers as well as with small-scale vintners who work family plots in their evenings while holding day jobs.

THE LANGUAGE OF WINE provides a behind-the-scenes view into the workings of wineries such as Domaine Dujac, Domaine de la Romanee Conti, Maison Joseph Faiveley, and Maison Latour among others. And, it offers a view of how modern life is shaped both by contemporary pressures and a long and complex history.

From the Contributor

Director Comments: THE LANGUAGE OF WINE was recorded in the vineyards of Burgundy. Over a two year period, I worked alongside winemakers in the world famous Cote D'Or and in the less affluent Cote Chalonnaise to its south. We talked about the challenges of their work, their vision of what they do, and many other aspects of their lives, from village conditions to questions of family succession. The result is a lyrical work in which I am able to intercut personal discussions that I had with winemakers with images that detail aspects of the work and life of winemakers not seen in traditional wine documentaries. The film is shot on 16mm film and digital video to create a rich textural view of Burgundy. The soundtrack includes the work of composers – one American and one French – combining classical and modern instrumentation. – rc
