The week in pictures

This week, we found out that Star Trek lead Captain Jean-Luc Picard is boldly growing where no Starfleet commander has grown before.

A Californian winery is standing in for what is supposed to be Picard’s Burgundy estate in the latest series of Star Trek.

As the drinks business reported out at the time, it was revealed in the trailers (and even the marketing promotions) that the start of the Star Trek: Picard series takes place in Burgundy, where former Starfleet officer Jean-Luc Picard (played by Patrick Stewart) has retired to his family domain to make wine.

But time and budget constraints mean that film and television shows routinely use locations that are nowhere near where they are meant to be, and as such, the vineyard is in fact Sunstone in the Santa Ynez Valley.
