Back to Burgundy

Jean (Pio Marmai,) left his native Burgundy and the family wine business a decade ago to travel around the world. The black sheep of the family, he unexpectedly returns home to reconnect with his ailing father. When Jean’s father dies, his sister Juliette (Ana Girardot,) takes over the reins of the “domaine” together with their younger brother, Jérémie (François Civil), who has recently married into one of the region’s more prestigious wine families. As the business is transferred to the children, a prohibitive inheritance tax must be dealt with. As four seasons and two harvests unfold, emotional and work-related conflicts erupt which will force the siblings to reinvent their relationships and their own life choices if they are to survive as a family and a business.

Gorgeously shot on location in several Burgundy vineyards over one year and four seasons, Back to Burgundy provides a fascinating glimpse into the winemaking process rarely depicted on screen as authentically. The screenplay was developed with the collaboration of veteran actor Jean-Marc Roulot (who plays Marcel, the estate’s manager) whose own real-life career as a top Burgundy winemaker provided invaluable input and locations. 

Best known for his well-observed and popular comedies of manners focusing on the generation of young men and women exploring adulthood, Cédric Klapisch’s credits include the trilogy of L'Auberge Espagnole, Russian Dolls and Chinese Puzzle, as well as When the Cat’s Away, Paris, A Piece of the Pie and Family Resemblances (Un Air de Famille), winner of the César for Best Original Screenplay.
