    Drama

    Charlie Marshall is a winemaker's son who left Burgundy to become a renowned Parisian winetaster, author of a successfull guide whose reviews send an annual tremble in the vineyards. But in Côte-d’Or, his father has lost his taste for wine and his mistakes lead the family winery quickly towards bankruptcy. At first reluctant, Charlie returns to Burgundy. He must put his boots back on, roll up his sleeves, and become a winemaker- confronting a professios he does not know under the skeptical gaze of his father. Between the unpredictable weather, and a delicate grape variety, Charlie will have to prove to his father that he is worthy of the land passed from generation to generation of his family. It is easy to taste a wine, but how do you make a great wine?
