The monastery church of Maulbronn is more than 800 years old, but has lost none of its radiance. The film visits a priest, a bookseller and a vintner who all live with the Cistercian monastery and its stories in their own way. The vintner Frank Jaggy pays his very own respect to the Cistercians who used to live here. He admires the way the centuries-old stone terraces were built for viticulture. Large, modern machines can hardly get through here. So he works entirely in the tradition of the monks, who knew how to use the position of the sun to the best advantage for their fair and monastic wine.
