Red Drops of Life

  • A story of the senses told through grape-growers and the wine they produce

  • Tags:

    In "Red Drops of Life," filmmaker Caspar Diederik takes a trip to southern Italy to uncover Aglianico, a unique grape cultivated on the volcanic soils of the Basilicata region. Part of the StoryTravelers series of tourism videos, Diederik's clip focuses on the stories behind the wine and the region it comes from: 

    With “Red drops of life” I wanted to visualize the story behind a divine wine in a poetic way. In fact it’s not a person that tells the story, but it’s the wine that tells its story through the senses. One glass of wine is containing not only a finely elaborated extract of riped grapes fed with a unique set of elements of found in these lands: sun, water and volcanic minerals; but it contains stories… stories of the people dedicating their lives to nurture it, following their traditions, knowledge and above all, their passion.

    Thank you Nancy at AboutHarvest for the tip.
