Summary Many of us share the fantasy of moving to a lovely village in the South of France, to find a vineyard, create wonderful wines, to sell it and share it with all our friends. Carole LeBlanc and Jo Béfort, an engaging lesbian couple, have done just that. Carole and Jo started their wine adventure six years ago in Collias, France. Their dream was to produce excellent wine. They had no experience, just their passion - and friends. Winemaking is a complex and labor intensive process, and still a very macho affair in France. But as this captivating film reveals, it is possible for two women who are willing to work hard to achieve their dream and live the life they choose - as well as bring an entire village and community into their world. "Charming." - Richard Jennings, The Huffington Post. "I like the spirit and atmosphere of the film. Congratulations!" - Jean-Louis Trintignant, Award-winning Actor from Amour "This charming film gives a very personal view of growing grapes and making wine. It celebrates the sense of community that they have created around their passion and takes you through the seasons of one year, treading a careful path between explaining all that is involved without overloading with technical detail." - Julia Harding, Master of Wine at Jancis Robinson.
