On the Canal du Midi to the Mediterranean Sea

Tamina Kallert and her friend Franziska rent a houseboat. Their itinerary touches medieval towns like Carcassonne, leads through the wine-growing regions of the Minervois and the Corbières and charming towns like Narbonne and Béziers. The Canal du Midi, one of the oldest waterways in Europe, is a masterpiece of engineering: begun in 1666 and completed in just 14 years of construction, it has 328 locks, bridges and tunnels. Once important for transporting wine, today it is France's most popular canal for houseboat holidays. In 1996 it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Living Like God in France - The Armagnac of Gascony (on Saturday night)

North of the Pyrenees, between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, lies Gascony. The heart of this ancient farming country is Armagnac, the land of the most famous of all musketeers: d'Artagnan. Armagnac is the traditional brandy distilled from wine. It matures for 15 to 20 years in oak barrels, a delicacy and a point of honour for every winegrower in Armagnac. Many rely on the experience of Paul Jironie, who spends a lifetime travelling the countryside with his mobile distillery, the Alambic, like a midwife to a home birth.

Wader Estate - Only Together Are We Strong Feature film, Germany 2019

For the Palatinate winegrower Anne (Henriette Richter-Röhl), things are tough right from the start as the new boss of the Wader wine estate. First, she barely manages to save her vines during a frosty spell, and then the supervisory authority shuts down her winery on suspicion of fraud. Only when it has been clarified whether 3,000 litres of wine were sold under the table and who over-sulphurised the red wine in the tanks can production and sales continue. That takes time - and by then the Waders will probably be broke! Only when Anne's mother Käthe (Leslie Malton) stands up for the serious mistakes under her management is there a way out of the threatening situation. However, the patriarch, who wanted to prove herself after the death of her highly respected husband, finds it difficult to sacrifice her reputation as a winemaker. Anne's uncle Bruno (Jürgen Heinrich) is also faced with a professional and private shambles. After being thrown out by his wife Christel (Judith von Radetzky), who owns the second Wader vineyard, the formerly powerful winemaker is faced with nothing. In order to get back into business, he is willing to use any means. He wants to buy land on behalf of Japanese investors. Meanwhile, Anne's 17-year-old daughter Tori (Caroline Hartig), who wants to move to Mannheim with her boyfriend Philipp (Nikolas Weber) and study music, has to cope with a serious disappointment. When he drops out under pressure from his parents, Tory questions the great love. Picture file: Winery_Wader.jpg

Railway Romance
The Grapevine Express
A journey from the Weinviertel to the Waldviertel

The Reblaus Express winds its way uphill through the vineyards of Retz - it travels leisurely from the Weinviertel to the Waldviertel. An old line, long disused, in a sparsely populated area. Vines, fields and forests alternate, a paradise for cyclists. They enjoy using the Reblaus Express, which is run by an association. In the past, mainly wood and grain were transported here, but now they are even thinking about starting freight traffic again. At least on weekends, the idyllic railway is experiencing a renaissance, just like the Waldviertel narrow-gauge railway, which is once again attracting guests with steam trains. Here, too, the saying goes: there's life in the old dog yet.

Hesse à la carte
Summer cocktails for garden and balcony

A summer evening with friends, good conversation and original mixed drinks. But where to get them and how to prepare them? "Hessen à la carte" accompanies people who know a thing or two about "indulgence". Severin Simon in Spessart, for example, is a multi-award-winning master distiller and winemaker, and his wife Simone is a trained sommelier. In the fifth generation, fine distillates for rum and gin are produced in their own small winery and distillery. No automation, no chemistry, just good raw materials and the art of distilling. And for ecological reasons, Severin Simon has the molasses for his rum transported quite traditionally by sailing ship. Another connoisseur in the bunch is Tim Wegge. In his "Genusserie" in Bad Vilbel, the bartender and self-confessed rum lover conjures up the most delicious summer drinks from 380 rums, including rum and gin from the Spessart. In his bar and also at the many tastings, he "rums" his guests - that's what he calls it himself.

Monte Isola

In the middle of Lake Iseo, surrounded by a mountain panorama up to 2,000 metres high, lies Monte Isola. About 17,000 olive trees grow on the island, the northernmost in all of Italy.

Land - Love - Air
The wine rebel on Saturday (09.07.22) at 14:30 on ERSTEN. July ane Eller in the vineyard

Sometimes it all seems like a dream to her: Juliane Eller from Alsheim is something like the shooting star among German female winegrowers. At the age of only 23, she took over her parents' vineyard and, despite the financial risks, radically restructured the business. That was six years ago. Since then, a new wind has been blowing at the winery - quality instead of quantity. The winemaker's daughter relies on organic guidelines and manual harvesting. She has created her own wine line with "Juwel" wines. But nothing works without the family. Juli ane is glad that her parents Thomas and Ingrid are still involved. Grandma Katharina takes care of the physical well-being at the winery. For her wine marketing, Juliane Eller used social media from the very beginning; after all, she belongs to the "Instagram generation". She also wants to get younger people excited about German wine. Why not work with real celebrities for this? The young winemaker from Rheinhessen managed to get presenter Joko Winterscheidt on board. Joko then convinced a good friend to join in: actor Matthias Schweighöfer. Today, the three successfully market their "3 Freunde wine". But success has its price. Besides working in the vineyard, Juliane Eller now travels a lot, sometimes too much.

An idyllic day in the vineyards, singing nuns on their way in God's beautiful nature - then Sister Camilla suddenly finds a dead body under a wayside cross on the western slope. When Inspector Josef Baumert learns that Camilla, of all people, found the body, it is clear to him: he can forget about an undisturbed investigation into the case of the murdered vintner's helper Franky Strobel. In fact, the nun sets to work immediately. Unlike Baumert, she is convinced that the murder and the strange cases of damage at the Feuerbach winery, where Franky was employed, are connected. Did someone want to bankrupt the winegrowing family? While Camilla investigates this question, Baumert and criminal assistant Manfred Reusch inspect the Feuerbach winery, where Franky lived and worked. In his room, they puzzle together a blackmail letter and find evidence of forbidden additives in the wine. For the inspector it is clear: winemaker Magnus Feuerbach has adulterated, his helper Franky Strobel found out and wanted to blackmail him. Picture file: nun_commissioner.jpg

What Argentina is like (3/5)

Argentina is one of the largest wine-growing countries in the world. Wine grows mainly on the eastern slopes of the Argentine Andes. The province of Mendoza is especially known for Malbec and other red wines. Actually, the region around Mendoza is almost a desert. But the soils are excellent for growing grapes, and there is plenty of sun. The Incas already recognised the potential and laid irrigation channels. Building on this, the winegrowers of the region created an ingenious canal system with the meltwater from the Andes. Although this can only irrigate about four percent of the land, it is enough for viticulture and also to make the desert city of Mendoza habitable. Picture file: Mendoza.jpg

After the tunnel at Puidoux, a magical sight opens up to the train passenger: The vineyards of Lavaux in the foreground, Lake Geneva shimmering blue behind, and the snow-covered slopes of majestic Mont Blanc in the distance. The vineyard terraces of Lavaux have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2007. Christelle Conne's family has run a vineyard here for generations and allows the film team a look inside.
