Thierry Barré always had a dream: a road trip from France to Castilla de La Mancha, Spain, to see the famous mills and follow the footsteps of Don Quixote. Along with José Garcia and Joël Dupuch, Thierry takes an initiation wine trip which will take them from vineyard to vineyard, to discover the wonderful wines of the region and meet the people behind this noble beverage.
In The Bottle is above all a tale of adventures, discoveries and encounters that immerse us in the heart of the wine-making (and tasting!) world. Shot between France and Spain, we meet winemakers who are also looking for something new in their craftmanship. Like in Don Quixote imaginary world, the essence of wine is based on reality : the search for taste, for smell, for unique experiences, that vary incredibly from year to year.
The film will seek to record natural and spontaneous reactions. The film will also attach a great importance to image. It implies, first, to shoot images of landscapes in optimal light conditions. It also means to film carefully the winemaking techniques, in order to transcribe on screen the feeling of authenticity that defines viticulture.
