A YEAR IN CHAMPAGNE was released in select theaters and on iTunes on Friday, March 6th.
"Gorgeous new film...Open a bottle and watch the whole thing this weekend." — Food & Wine
"the movie is as sumptuous as vintage Champagne, and offers a nice insight into the land and the people behind the wines" — Wine Searcher
Great reviews have appeared in Food & Wine magazine, Wine Searcher, and in a host of wine blogs from all over the US and Europe.
Written and directed by David Kennard, A YEAR IN CHAMPAGNE is the follow-up to A YEAR IN BURGUNDY and boasts many revelations about France’s most famous beverage. And just as in A YEAR IN BURGUNDY, legendary wine importer Martine Saunier is our guide as we get a rare glimpse behind the scenes into the real Champagne through six houses — from small independent makers like Champagne Saint-Chamant, where each and every bottle is still turned by hand in the cellars, to the illustrious houses of Gosset and Bollinger, which have been instrumental in shaping the image of Champagne around the world.
This is the first feature-length film for US audiences exploring and celebrating the world of Champagne — people, culture, terroir, and wine.
Running time: 82 minutes
