Universum The genesis of wine

Production Overview
The Wachau valley, Burgenland, Southern Styria, Weinviertel, Vienna and the Thermal Region: these are the major wine-growing areas in Austria. All of them have their very own viticultural characteristics and carefully nursed traditions. And all of them produce superior wines - Austrian vintners rank top among wine-growers and wine-lovers the world over.

The crew crossed fascinating stretches of vineyards 5in a hot-air balloon, and climbed down deep into centuries-old vaults to track the secrets of wine-growing. From sprouting vines and ripening grapes to the patient labour of vintners with the maturing wine, and the variegated animal and plant communities in the vineyards and cellars - the documentary provides splendid and sublime images of the art of Austrian viticulture through the passage of the seasons.
