-4 Seasons, 5 Tastes of Life-

duration 75 min and 52 min


In a remote village in the north of Serbia something unexpected has happened. All of a sudden, a French family have moved to a poor place deserted by the young.

They believe they have found a promised land for growing grapes and winemaking. But they have found only old people in the village, distrusting people with old habits.

A new challenge awaited them back home in France – how to persuade sommeliers that superior wine can be made in an unkown and problematic region? Can they awake hope and breathe a new life into the old village?

A promise is born…

Cyril Bongiraud (tastes wine) and Estelle Germain, originating in Burgundy (central-eastern France), had wanted to "change of air" and to engage in "something new". By chance they found Serbia five years ago. AFP PHOTO / ANDREJ ISAKOVIC
