The Genesis of Wine
Edler Tropfen - Vom Werden des Weins
Austrian winegrowers rank top among wine-growers and wine-lovers over the world. The film team crossed fascinating stretches of Austrian vineyards in a hot-air balloon, and climbed down deep into centuries-old vaults to track the secrets of wine-growing. From sprouting vines and ripening grapes to the patient labour of winegrowers with the maturing wine, and the variegated animal and plant communities in the vineyards and cellars - the documentary provides splendid and sublime images of the art of Austrian viticulture through the passage of the seasons.
