Crush, a new 13-minute-long wine documentary, just debuted at the 10th Annual Sonoma Valley Film Festival. Filmmaker Bret Lyman follows winemaker Richard Bruno of Don Sebastiani & Sons through the end-of-season harvest and crush, letting the story be told through gorgeous visuals and simple narration. The movie is very much cinematic, with the portrayal of the human element of the story far outweighing any academic explanation of the processes being filmed. Definitely worth 13 minutes of any wine lover's time!
