LIVING WINE

Opens Friday, August 19!

Q&A with filmmaker Lori Miller and winemaker Darek Trowbridge following 4pm showing Saturday, August 20!

The natural wine movement in the U.S. is about 25 years behind the organic food movement, and Living Wine follows innovative natural winemakers in Northern California who stay true to their disparate and unique artistic and ecological visions, while managing to save their businesses during the worst wildfire season on record.

We meet our three main subjects and learn about their inspirations and techniques: In Sonoma Country, we follow Darek Trowbridge, a regenerative farmer and winemaker who comes from a legacy winemaking family in California but rejects their modern corporate winemaking ways. Megan Bell is from Santa Cruz, also formally educated (UC Davis wine program) and trained through the conventional wine industry, but she started her own natural wine business to pursue a more fulfilling path than working within the corporate industrial wine complex. And, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, Gideon Beinstock is a master winemaker who farms his vineyards with techniques he learned from artisan winemakers in France – Gideon makes wine as a pure expression of place.
