Exclusive Matter of Taste London Premiere of the award winning feature film André - The Voice of Wine narrated by Ralph Fiennes will take place at the Princess Anne Theatre - British Academy of Film and Television Arts .

André Tchelistcheff, the “dean of American winemaking,” was one of the most remarkable vintners of the twentieth century. "André - The Voice of Wine" takes viewers on a cinematic journey from Russia through Europe to America, exploring the story of the legendary winemaker. Born a Russian aristocrat, his family was forced to flee persecution under the Bolshevik revolution. After a turbulent early life, he came to the Napa Valley where he helped reshape the California wine industry after the repeal of Prohibition. André was an artist and scientist - his philosophy about life and his love for wine continues to influence generations of winemakers worldwide. This story, narrated by Ralph Fiennes and told in André’s voice and the voices of those who knew him best, features some of today’s most important vintners.

Following the film, there will be a Q & A with Director Mark Tchelistcheff and a panel of distinguished guests including: Michael Silacci (Opus One), Gelasio Gaetani d’Aragona Lovatelli (Ornellaia), Patrick Leon (Les Trois Croix / Lefkadia Valley), and more to be announced...

Directly after the panel, the matinee event will be concluded with a meet & greet with the film director and panelists during a curated wine reception.

Featured wineries include Opus One, Ornellaia, Chêne Bleu, Beaulieu Vineyards, Grgich Hills, Les Trois Croix, Lefkadia Valley, Chateau D”Esclans.

In addition to enjoying this fantastic, exclusive event, you will automatically be a patron of the arts by attending. A portion of the proceeds from these Screenings will help provide the platform for this important film to be released and shown to the general public in 2019.

A perfect Sunday Matinee. Don't you wish all movies had wine tastings and meet and greet film panels with icons of the industry. We look forward to seeing you there!

"Wine movies are a tough sell.  There have been few that have captured the passion that people feel for the process and the journey of winemakers. But due to the subject and the crafting of “André Tchelistcheff:  The Voice of Wine,” this is one worth seeking out." - Kelly J Hayes
