Forbidden Fruit

HD, DVC Pro, 26 min. 2011


Jaak feels like he has been born in a wrong place. Above all, he would have wanted to be a chateau owner and winemaker in the middle of South-Italian vineyard. But instead of moving to Italy, Jaak decided to defy the northern climate and establish a winery right beside his own farm in Estonia. And as incredible as it might seem – that's where he received his first harvest. Not far from Jaak, lives Liia, an eager nan, whose passion for grapes has encouraged her to collect over two hundred sorts of grapes in her yard and it seems, there are new plants and greenhouses coming along every year. But how does the nature feel about that? Does it nourish or punish?
