Vintage: The Winemaker's Year

Episode 1 of 1

VINTAGE: THE WINEMAKER'S YEAR explores the rapid growth of the wine industry in Virginia and its increasing impact on the state's cultural, social and economic landscape. Shot in high definition, the narrative comprises two intertwining strands: the story of the wine industry's rise from humble beginnings and the tale of the state's 2008 vintage. The vintners of the Monticello wine region in central Virginia serve as the main characters, as the natural drama of a winemaker's year unfolds. VINTAGE examines the factors that make Virginia unique among the wine-producing regions of the United States and explores why, 200 years after Thomas Jefferson failed to cultivate grapes at Monticello, the region finally flourished as a producer of quality wines.
