After an upstart winemakers untimely death, his sister steps in to try to save his fledgling winery for his eight-year-old son: American Wine Story blends this with other tales of risk and reward for those who chase their American Dreams with a bottle in one hand and a corkscrew in the other.
It's been a while since we've reached out with an update, but we wanted to share some news and an exciting upcoming event.
- For those in Oregon, the Brooks Winery, featured in the film, is hosting a wine tasting event this Sunday, May 22, with director and writer David Baker. He'll be discussing the intersection of food, wine and literature, as well as his new novel, Vintage, from Simon & Schuster while sommelier Jess Pierce pours a stunning flight of wines from Brooks and beyond. There's still a few seats left for the event, and tickets are available here.
And in other news:
- Vintage, published by Simon & Schuster, is available wherever you buy or order books. Called "spellbinding" by the Library Journal and "positively delightful" by the Seattle Times, it's a wine-soaked adventure that takes you on a wild romp through French wine country.
- The producers of American Wine Story are at work on their next project, Saving Atlantis, about the decline of coral reefs around the world. Production wraps this summer and we'll be entering post-production just as one of the most devastating years for reef destruction comes to a close. It's an important story that needs to be told.
- And we'll soon begin production for our follow-up wine project, a feature documentary taking viewers behind the scenes at the world's oldest and most exclusive wine event, the Three Days of Glory, shooting this fall in Burgundy after what's proving to be a pretty rough season for Burgundian growers, weather wise.
- American Wine Story is still available for rent and purchase online, as well as streaming via Amazon Prime, with new broadcast runs continuously added on stations across the country.
