The Ideal Wine Company team were excited to learn recently that a new 3D film has been launched which offers viewers a 360 degree view of the vineyards of Champagne.
World Heritage Site
The Champagne region of France is known for making the sparkling wine that bears its name, Champagne. A fabulously luxurious tipple, Champagne is one of the most popular drinks on the planet and people have been quaffing the delicious, decadent sparkling wine for centuries.
The vineyards, production sites and sales points of Champagne are of such cultural significance that this year they were named a World Heritage Site by The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). This designation, which is only handed to ‘sites across the world which have a special cultural and/or natural significance to humanity,’ will ensure Champagne’s wine-making infrastructure will be protected for centuries to come.
Comité Champagne, the industry’s trade body, has celebrated the region’s designation as a World Heritage Site by releasing a 3D film which offers viewers a 360 degree view of its vineyards. According to Decanter, the production took seven days to shoot, using nine cameras mounted via GoPro on a drone to create the 3D effect, and a month to edit.
Champagne lovers can now watch the movie on YouTube through their tablets and phones. All you have to do is move your device up and down, or left and right, to change the view and tour the vineyards of the region. The film has been made available in English, French, Chinese and Japanese, according to the trade association, and it can also be downloaded on Android and Apple devices.
Bruno Paillard, who is head of his eponymous Champagne house and also head of communications for Comité Champagne, commented on the release of the film. He said that “with this film we want to celebrate and share our UNESCO world heritage status with the rest of the world.”
Meanwhile Lionel Rocques-Boizel of Champagne house Champagne Boizel said: “The film is amazing even for the Champenois (Champagne makers), because as we go about our tasks, we always view the vineyards and cellars in the same way. The film allows us to expand our own vison in an avant-garde way.”
