Praise for A Year in Burgundy in LA Weekly


The International Pinot Noir Celebration: 300 Wines, 75 Producers, 700 Participants + A Movie

He calls the film "a luxurious and quite beautifully shot chronicle of a single vintage."



"Indeed, more than usual, Burgundy was a persistent theme at this year's IPNC. The award-winning documentary film director David Kennard was on hand to debut a working cut of A Year in Burgundy, which is just that, a luxurious and quite beautifully shot chronicle of a single vintage, 2011. It follows six producers as they tend to their vineyards, from bud break to harvest, encountering many hair-raising events -- make-or-break pruning decisions, harrowing weather events, narrow logistical windows -- many uneasy moments through which they winnow on their way to harvest. Short of growing the stuff yourself, it was a good occasion to experience firsthand the growth cycle, in its entirety, of one of the world's great wines, in one of the most marginal regions on Earth -- coming soon to a PBS station near you."
