I have not done a movie review in a while but here is one I want to pass on since we are in the celebratory season of food and wine. It is called A Year in Burgundy. It is available on DVD, Netflix, iTunes and probably Amazon Prime. I am drawn to any movie about food and wine so this is right up my alley.
The movie is basically a documentary. It covers the travails of several domaines during the 2011 growing season and harvest, a tricky year marked by rain, hail, heat and more.
There is a nod to Burgundy’s history and the cinematography captures the charm and feel of the region. The film brings you into the location. From the field and cellar footage to the scenes around the Sunday lunch table.
It has gotten good reviews, the cinematography is amazing and it is perfect to watch with all ages.
Director David Kennard is doing a trilogy about the wine business. He has already shot his second movie in the series, A Year in Champagne which was released earlier this year and he is currently shooting footage for A Year in Port.
