Three Days of Glory
A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT THE WORLD’S
GREATEST WINE CELEBRATION IN THE
MOST STORIED WINE REGION DURING
THE MOST BRUTAL YEAR?
Scott Wright, Co-Producer, Three Days of Glory; Former owner of Scott Paul Wines
The hills of Burgundy are covered in legendary vineyards, pristinely manicured, tiny parcels rooted in the planet’s most exclusive soils. The wine growers are hardworking, humble vignerons who work in awe of the vines they farm.
On April 27, 2016, a brutal frost devastates Burgundy. Some of the producers lose 90 percent or more of their crop before the year has even begun. Still, they press on with the stubborn courage forged by grit and generations of humility before the spiritual gift of the terroir, their soil and landscape, that produces the most stunning wines on the planet. And each November, this reeling wine region will explode with color and decadence as winemakers, chefs, writers, critics, industry legends, foodies and aficionados converge on the sleepy heart of Burgundy wine country for three days of raucous celebration. A series of events like no other, Les Trois Glorieuses (The Three Days of Glory) brings an eccentric collection of connoisseurs together around mind-blowing meals and an unthinkable range of the greatest wines on the planet.
This film takes the first ever, all-access look at everything that goes into this extraordinary festival. We explore never before filmed events and follow a colorful cast of vignerons throughout the brutal 2016 season as they prepare for the celebration. We’ll learn about the food, wines and personalities that make Burgundy the epicenter of the wine world and the Three Days of Glory the pinnacle of wine celebration.
On Monday, May 21, the Grace & Ken Evenstad Center for Wine Education will host a screening of Three Days of Glory at in Ice Auditorium, followed by a Q&A with Co-Director/Producer, Scott Wright. Please join us for refreshments, post Q&A.
