Problems have happened before. The growers respond by throwing a massive party.
The three days referenced in this film title are not a knuckle-whitening whodunnit with a dangerous deadline. They are three days when the little man thumbs his nose at the establishment, behaves carelessly, drinks loads of top class booze and sings bawdy songs. Wine pundit, Scott Wright, takes a camera and a sense of admiration to Les Trois Glorieuses, a community shindig at the Hospice de Beaune in France’s Burgundy region. Every November the vignerons celebrate the tradition of harvest in the face of spiralling costs, circling corporate vultures, bad weather and tiny, inefficient vineyards. This sumptuously filmed paean to the beauty of the Burgundian countryside, plots the hurdles the locals have overcome over the last 100 years to establish themselves as down-to-earth people of the country, yet who now sit on stratospherically expensive land, whilst consistently making some of the best wines on earth. Lovers of wine and Tasmanian wine makers will surely relate!
There will be a Q & A after the screening with Wines of Tasmania and Fermentasmania to discuss the issues facing small high quality vineyards in this film, in Tasmania and around Australia.
