ABOUT THE FILM
A small band of Occitan rebels in the South of France is challenging the entrenched, highly regulated world of French winemaking. Inspired by the global movement for sustainable farming, they go beyond organic to produce biodynamic, living wines. True affinity for terroir – the full breadth of soil, topography and climate – requires intimate familiarity with and devotion to the land. Economic constraints and philosophy combine to encourage the exchange of ideas and equipment, from harvest to bottling. Without using additives, these vintners must adjust their techniques and take a whole new approach to produce and evaluate their delectable products.
