Vermilionville in conjunction with the South Arts Southern Circuit of Independent Filmmakers will be screening Harvest.
Shot entirely in Sonoma County, the feature-length documentary "Harvest" reveals the blood, sweat and tears that go into every bottle of wine. There is no swirling, no sniffing, no sipping or quaffing. This is all about back-breaking manual labor and night picks at 2 a.m. with only tiny headlamps.
The film follows five family wineries - Robledo, Rafanelli, Foppiano, Harvest Moon and Robert Hunter -- over the course of three months during the harvest in 2011. It would turn out to be the worst harvest in Sonoma County in at least 50 years. This is the story behind the wine you drink.
Following the screening will be a discussion with filmmaker John Beck where audience members will be able to ask questions and participate in a discussion about how it is produced. There will also be a wine and cheese tasting before the film for attendees.
Southern Circuit Film Series screens Harvest on Monday, November 18 at 6:30 p.m., at Vermillionville, located at 300 Fisher Road. Admission to the screening will be $10 and food and beverages will be available for purchase for this all ages screening. For more information visit Vermilionville.org or call 337-233-4077.
