Three Days (and 2 years) of Glory

We're getting closer - final edits are almost done on our documentary, and we'll be close enough to have a sneak-preview screening here in Beaune on Nov. 19th, following the Hospices de Beaune auction earlier that day. (Everyone is pumped about the auction - great quality, big quantity - should be lots of action this year...) It's been nearly 2 years since we started the project, and it's pretty amazing to see it all start to come together.The actual US release of the finished film will be sometime in the new year. There are still lots of details to pull together - stay tuned. One of the best parts of putting this film together has been doing the research - especially when we find pics of our producers from when they were little kids - great stuff!

After reading and enjoying his stuff for many years, I finally met Bill Nanson for a glass of wine at Le Bout de Monde (Marc Roy '14 Gevrey VV, to be precise) the other night. Any Burg-lover owes it to themselves to check out Bill's Burgundy-Report.com - well written, great producer profiles, tons of tasting notes, and great photos too...

I finally had the chance to get up to the haute-côte to see the St. Vivant Abbey up in Curtil-Vergy, DRC has undertaken the renovation of this historical site, and it felt like a holy pilgrimmage to be there. It was over a thousand years ago, but those monks had it goin' on...
