Escape to the Winery is a documentary about three wineries in the Yarra Valley including Innocent Bystander, Elmswood Estate and Yering Station on their biannual picking of grape for red and vintage wines in Victoria. It is a personal account of the journey of the winemakers, key players in the wine industry, the winemaking process and the rolling hills of Yarra Valley landscape.

Innocent Bystander is strategically situated in Healesville which is just 64.6 kilometres away from Melbourne’s CBD, Elmswood Estate Winery a 55.2 kilometres away in leafy environment of Seville, and Yering Station 52.4 kilometres East of the CBD – these wineries unveils the secret and aesthetics of winemaking.

Captured in the leafy beauty and charm of the vineyards, Steve, Willy, Han and Jeannie with clarity, eloquence, dry humour and passion, talk about winemaking and the culture that ensues from fermenting grapes. With meticulous arrangement of these arresting interviews and eye-popping imagery of the vineyards, with the easy listening and relaxing acoustic sounds of Eyes Half Closed’s Connected, Escape to the Winery seeks to re-inculcate the serenity, peacefulness, and ease of mind we feel when we are away from the city and how ‘something big’ can be produced from ‘something so small’.

Escape to the Winery intertwines the processes of winemaking, with escaping one’s own reality, and the inexplicable sense of peace, serenity and social experiences that comes from the vineyards. Untainted with unnecessary jargons, the story is told through a fusion of personal accounts and hands on on-the-job footage captured through the lens of our camera on the vineyards.

With wine barrels tucked away in sequestered cellar enclosures, and time strictly of the essence, the winemakers are compelled to overcome the impact of rain, pests, mud and of course, the ever changing Victorian weather to pick the right grapes at the right time. The resulting fruits of their labour lie not just in the varieties they produce – but their tenaciousness, temerity, temperament and virtue continually moulds and shapes our society, social experiences and social capital.
