About the poster:

The poster illustrates a man collecting Beran grapes that will, later on, be used for making red wine.

Beran is a type of grape also known as Malbec. The grapes tend to have an inky dark color and are known as one of the six grapes allowed in the blend of red Bordeaux wine. A popular but unconfirmed theory claims that Malbec is named after a Hungarian peasant who first spread the grape variety throughout France.

The poster conveys the romantic and dreamy setting of the South of France, where of Malbec are often found.

The poster is in overall very good condition. There are small tears on the left side of the poster (top and bottom) and some marks on the lower part of the poster.
