Three siblings reunite at their home in picturesque Burgundy to save the family vineyard in this tender tale of a new generation finding its own unique blend from acclaimed director Cédric Klapisch (L'Auberge Espagnole).

In his latest work, Cédric Klapisch (L'Auberge Espagnole, Chinese Puzzle) captures the transfixing beauty of seasonal change across one of France’s most famous winemaking regions. With the death of his father looming, Jean (Pio Marmaï) returns from his Australian winery to his childhood home in Burgundy after a 10-year absence. He takes over the family vineyard with siblings Juliette (Ana Girardot) and Jérémie (François Civil). Over a year, Jean, Juliette and Jérémie must fight to put aside their lingering resentments about the past as they seek to maintain their father’s legacy and defy expectations. A heartfelt love letter to what could be argued are France’s greatest passions – 'cinéma et vin' – Back to Burgundy is a nuanced parable of sibling camaraderie and imploding familial tension that arrives at the inevitable conclusion that love is like wine... it needs time.
