18h30: A YEAR IN BURGUNDY, directed by David Kennard (91 minutes)
Getting the chance to follow the seasons in France through a year of winemaking is complete heaven. The journey, seen through the eyes of wine importer Martine Saunier in A Year in Burgundy, is both pleasurable and informative. As Saunier says, “To understand why Burgundy may be the most special wine region on earth you must visit and meet the people.” This documentary explores the history of the vineyards and winemaking, which began when the Romans came, and the importance and diversity of the terroir in the region — one village can produce 400 varieties of wine. Director David Kennard follows seven different families as they struggle against nature and the land in an attempt to create singular bottles of wine.
20h00: Coffee in the courtyard (or drink more Plett wine from the cash bar)
