We create an ancient and magic story as we tend the vines, crush the grapes, and ferment the juice. The Wine Project invites you into a world of intrigue and aroma, of ritual and revelry, of sex and power:
“This is a dance of joy you feel to the extreme, a drama you know in your soul, a dark secret they share that you won’t admit is yours.” Theatreview, Nelson, 2015
The Wine Project is the second work of 5 in Java’s Artisan Series
Artistic Director Sacha Copland began fermenting this new work in a French vineyard and now invites you to taste it.
Recently returned from an award winning Edinburgh season in 2016 sponsored by Urlar Estate.
