Format: DVD
Watch this beautiful film with half a bottle of fine burgundy inside you - which is how I first viewed it ! Sadly, classic documentaries like this aren't often made any more, but it's a reminder of what cinema and television have lost in the current fashion of turning depictions of real life into frenetically edited, frequently fabricated eye-candy. From the very opening sequence, with its slow put-putting Deux Chevaux (France's iconic peasant car) arriving at a down-at-heel farmhouse, this film takes you into another slower world, where time's passage is divided into only four - the seasons of the year. We see the passing rituals of the wine-growers' calendar, the deep but lively interpersonal bonds between all who join together to create the wines, and everyone's almost spiritual bond with the "terroir" - the soil which makes each Burgundian wine unique. This delightful documentary glides you effortlessly on a journey deep into the very soul of France - its viticulture; by the end you'll have met some charming characters, and learned more about wine-making than you ever thought you knew.

There are very few films which can be sampled, while sipping a bottle of Burgundy and relaxing utterly. This is one. The people, the drama of their lives, their characteristics, the beauty of the place in all four seasons. Try it! Share it! view it with friends! It makes you hopeful for the human race.

Watched it with friends - dinner and a movie. Beautiful - I mean really beautiful- great music too! It's a peek behind the curtain to see some of the most talented winemaker in the world. Awesome!

Figured out I needed to make sure my setting were set to run the cc for the subtitles- they are there! Perfect movie for family and friends.

HASH(0x8accbad4) out of 5 stars Great armchair travel, beautifully shot 5 Dec. 2013
By Alisha - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This film is great armchair travel, especially for anyone who loves food and wine and learning about the people who make the products they love. And the photography is a real treat, far more beautiful than what many documentaries have to offer.

HASH(0x8ace8be8) out of 5 stars French Farmers who grow Million Dollar Grapes 8 Jan. 2014
By Dwight L. Short - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
What a treat to go into the cellars and vineyards of several vintners in Burgundy regions of France and see how the culture and terrior determine the lifestyles. Martine is a sweet elderly host for this journey but grapes and those who tend them are the real stars of the show. Another great treat that most of us will never experience is the annual wine dinner/festival at Clos Vougeot where 500 locals and guests celebrate the wonders of wines from the Burgundy region. This can be a wonderful way to learn about wines and vines as well but you must be observant about the subtleties of information that the locals take for granted and those who are not familiar often miss. For example, the emphasis on the two primary grapes of burgundy, chardonnay and pinot noir get lost for many people in all the French names and unique labels. All burgundy serious wines that are red are pinot noirs. There is another haunting feature of this film that involves the musical scores. One of the young winemaker heirs, Thibaut, loves to play the piano and it seems like they have used his hobby as the simplistic background music for painting the simple French countryside and it is more authentic than the producers expected. This is a wonderful movie if you are looking for relief from all the "R" rated junk that fills the theaters. A Year In Burgundy still makes me want to return some September in my work clothes and see if I could get hired to pick the grapes. I may not be the fastest worker but I would be meticulous and for sure I would never be late to lunch or dinner!

HASH(0x8a54b7a4) out of 5 stars Tenacity, Tenderness and Terroir 15 Jun. 2014
By JRM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This film works very well because the makers had good access to interesting Domaines in
Burgundy . It is measured and easy to watch.
I am a lover of Burgundy wine and have visited the area several times ; but the full access to
activities in each season of the year gives more than an understanding of the vineyards; it shows the
passion and understanding that the people have for their land and vines.
Observing the action at Domaine Leroy and the comments and approach of Mme Lalou is a special privilege
not often granted.
