Check out the article in Paso Press about our friends at Clos Solene:

Clos-SoleneA short film about Paso Robles’ Clos Solene Winery has been accepted into the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.

“Clos Solene,” a an 8-minute documentary by San Luis Obispo photographer and Cal Poly graduate Chris Leschinsky, will be part of a group of “Screen Cuisine” shorts to be shown Feb. 6-7 at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art.

The film is about Clos Solene’s founder, French winemaker Guillaume Fabre, who moved to California to start his own winery and raise his family. The film follows Guillaume, his wife Solene, and his two young children through the grape growing season. This charming short feature is about a man, his family, his vision and his passion.

“This is our dream becoming reality,” says Solene Fabre. “We invested the small savings we had, worked and still work as much as possible to first, make elegant wine with character and personality, but also to develop a relationship with the persons who are supporting us in this endless work.”

The 11-day event showcases over 200 films from 54 countries around the globe. Over 85,000 attendees will converge on Santa Barbara to view films at various historical sites throughout Santa Barbara. “Screen Cuisine” is a selection of short documentaries featuring engaging stories about brew masters, chefs, entrepreneurs, and winemakers.

The screening of “Clos Solene” is on Feb. 6 is at 10 a.m., and on Feb. 7 at 1 p.m.
