Forbidden fruit (2011)

Original title: Keelatud vili

Documentary Duration 26:00


Jaak has the feeling of having been born in a wrong place. He would have wanted to become a wine estate owner somewhere in the middle of vineyards in South Italy. Instead of moving to Italy, Jaak has decided to defy Northern weather and to establish a vineyard on the slopes right next to his farm in Valga county. It may sound unbelievable but he has harvested his first crop. Liia lives not far from Jaak - she comes from Seto region, Estonia, and her passion towards grapes has inspired her to collect more than two hundred varieties of grapes in her garden. Every year brings new plants and greenhouses. What does Estonian nature think of this? Does it approve or punishes the farmers?
