another movie on the vine
Bon Voyage Vitis
Great grape escapes across the Atlantic
From the beginning of European colonization in America, the vine began to travel the world by boat following the interests and curiosities of adventurers, migrants and botanists. The mixing of cultures and the exchange of plants have both devastated and resuscitated the vineyards of the world.
When Lucie Morton discovers that her own family history is linked to that of an extinct American grape variety, her quest to bring it back to Virginia leads her to meet professional and amateur winemakers in beautiful and unlikely places.
