Cine Quebec: Grand Cru with Cheese Tasting & Wine

Join the Museum of Work & Culture for a virtual reimagining of its annual Cine Quebec event. The evening will begin with a virtual cheese tasting led by Edgewood Cheese Shop. It will be followed by a screening of Quebecois documentary Grand Cru, chronicling the lifework of Pascal Marchand, an aspiring poet from Montreal, arrived in the mythical land of Burgundy, France to work the harvest at age 21. Enchanted by the region, he settled there and embarked on an unlikely path to winemaking stardom. Now over 30 years later, he is renowned as an artist and innovator, finding his inspiration in the ancient techniques of the Cistercian monks who meticulously studied and refined Burgundy’s winemaking in the middle ages. Shot over his most difficult year ever, the catastrophic 2016 season which saw devastating frosts, hailstorms and disease in the vineyards, the film is both a love letter and a cautionary tale, as winemakers like Pascal must face the unpredictable and destructive consequences of climate change.

Tickets are $30 and include a refreshment pickup featuring a selection of 5 cheeses for two from Edgewood Cheese Shop and a bottle of Louis Jadot Beaujolais Villages from the Burgundy region of France.

Space is limited, and early registration is strongly encouraged. Registration ends on Monday, March 15, 2021.
