A Cherry Tale
Three Danish entrepreneurs embark on making cherry wine on the island of Lolland. An adventure about taking the leap from hobby to risky business.
When Harald Krabbe inherits a manor house on the Danish island of Lolland, he wants to try something new. And sometimes you just have to find the right people at the right time. The Nordic wave is rolling, food and wine produced locally are in. And with the wine connoisseur Morten and the master chef Jan, Harald sets about making wine from the cherries of his own grove. A hobby and a passion, which quickly grows into an ambitious business venture for the three adventurers. Even the Queen pays a visit to the vineyard. But the adventure also meets some challenges, as the ambition levels and the pressure increases. Millions are at stake, and the three friends also have their disagreements. Plus, the world of wine is not for amateurs. Snobbery and hierarchies are the order of the day, but there are also fresh opportunities to market oneself as an alternative to the established producers in France. However, the greatest market - and the biggest gamble - is eastwards, in China. Eva Mulvad has followed the three friends during three years of ups and downs in a film about betting everything on a good idea.
