La Revolution du Rosé: How a Ridiculed Wine Became a Winner
Directed by Ken Kobre
A documentary in English, shot in Europe and the US “La Revolution du Rosé: How a ridiculed wine became a winner” tells the story of how rosé wine suddenly became a ‘serious’ wine, especially among winemakers themselves.
It was once mocked as a sickeningly sweet alcoholic beverage, consumed only at college frat parties or on cheap dates. It was ridiculed as a “gateway” drink for those making the transition from soda to something a half-notch more sophisticated. But now, wine connoisseurs are finding high quality rosé to be a premium wine worthy of the finest table.
San Francisco-based videojournalist Ken Kobré, whose summer home in Provence is surrounded by vineyards, wondered about that.
Plays with Born of Stone and From Shore to Farm.
EcoCinema, Arts In Film, Food & Wine On Film / 110 minsRosé... is, well, Rosé. Chèvre is goat cheese... and Vernet? Joseph Vernet is a remarkable 18th century French painter whose painting of sea ports, skies, seascapes and working people set a new bar for French painting. His work is the inspiration for our Closing Night film "FRENCH TOUR - Tour de France" with Gérard Depardieu. Come to the films and Reception Friday afternoon and see reproductions of Vernet's French Ports series. After the films, Robert Rex of Deerfield Ranch winery will discuss his philosophy of Rosé and we will sample a taste of his rosé as well as Ashton Vineyards Rosé of Syrah.
