LOS ANGELES, Sept. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The documentary film, "Wine From Here: Natural Wine in California" will be shown in Los Angeles for the first time on Thursday, September 22, at 7 pm.

"Wine From Here" is about the budding natural wine movement in California. Through lively and in-depth interviews with natural wine producers in their own working environment, the vineyard and the winery, the film reveals the passion and the techniques that distinguish natural wine producers from other wine producers, emphasizing the importance of organic and sustainable farming, the use of native yeasts during the fermentation of the grapes, and the restrained use of sulfur.

Ultimately, "Wine From Here" captures the values of a new generation of wine drinkers who care about authenticity and the environment. The film is the story of this generation's favorite winemakers who are today pioneering a new trend in California's wine industry.

The San Francisco premiere of "Wine From Here" last month drew critical acclaim from wine experts, such as author and wine journalist Jamie Goode: " 'Wine From Here' is a really enjoyable film, beautifully shot... .delivers a really engaging story of the winemakers, merchants and journalists who are hooked by the pursuit of authenticity in wine ... .'Wine From Here' is the first film to explore it in depth."
