POST-SCREENING DISCUSSION AND WINETASTING
This documentary is a compelling portrait of wine production in Napa and Sonoma, highlighting migrant vineyard workers and Mexican-American winemakers. It follows veteran winemaker Gustavo Brambila, vineyard manager Vanessa Robledo and migrant worker René Reyes through the dramatic grape harvest of 2017. During harvest, the number of workers doubles, and tourism is at its peak. Prices rise, tempers flare, and the pressures could not be greater for workers, growers and the small wine producer. Then wildfires ignite, threatening the livelihoods of both workers and farm owners. Despite mounting pressure, they forge ahead for next year’s harvest, since their work is both a labor of love and a cherished part of their heritage.Producer: Lauren Capps. Director Bernardo Ruiz (US 2018) 82 min. plus discussion followed by winetasting.
