Video: Making Wine in Burgundy

I visited Burgundy in mid-September with Patriarche Wine Agencies to celebrate the beginning of the 2010 grape harvest. It was an incredible trip from the food (copious and creamy) to the company (gracious and good-humoured) and the wine (stunning and sublime).

Hosts Keith Isaac, MW and Belinda Stone showed us around the quaint villages and picturesque vineyards of the Côte d’Or. I will have much more for you from my visit to Burgundy, but wanted to start with this video that I hope will give you a glimpse into how wine is made.

I hope you enjoy it! Let me know what you think in the comments below.

    Hi Tara, love the video, great to see a little of what I missed out on the Tuesday I had to leave! Have to agree with everything you say about this wonderful trip, our splendid hosts and convivial company! The memory of tasting and comparing those exquisite Montrachets under the streets of Beaune will stay with me forever. Keep up the good work :-) Billy.
