"A Perfect Vintage is a stunningly beautiful, entertaining, and very informative documentary. Whether the viewer is a wine aficionado, a wine enthusiast, or just plain curious, they will be captivated by the passion that some of the most recognizable winemakers in the world have for their craft and the tender loving care they put into every bottle."
A Perfect Vintage marks dancer-turned-director Troy Christian’s sophomore solo effort. It follows a handful of makers, merchants, and others who take audiences through the entire winemaking process. While it might seem like a niche thing that will only appeal to specific audience members, the filmmaker makes it broadly appealing.
With unprecedented access behind the scenes, some of the most renowned California winemakers share how they embrace the rhythms of Mother Nature and captured an epic year of prime winemaking conditions.
The stunning beauty of one of the world’s top wine growing regions, and the most romantic aspect of “terroir” – the complete natural environment – are showcased.
From pruning to pouring, tasting notes to the point system, watch as both winemakers and wine critics discover that 2013 was truly ‘A Perfect Vintage’.
