Making a great wine is easy, it's the first 200 years that are difficult.

For nearly a century France has reigned supreme over the world of fine wine. What if one country famous for punching above its weight took on the aristocracy, breaking the rules of the Old World and were “beating the French at their own game”. This is the story of New Zealand’s warp speed assent to the top of the wine world. We ask France’s best winemakers, the world’s greatest critics and most influential merchants one question. Has New Zealand earned a seat at the table?

Travelling from France to the United Kingdom to New Zealand the film covers all the key stories that now link both the new and old world. We hear both sides of each story from grape vines illegally smuggled in gumboots to climate change and the screwcap vs. cork debate.

A Seat at the Table culminates with some of France’s most well-respected winemakers tasting New Zealand wine for the first time. Their responses are astounding to watch.
