"VINTAGE is a unique and engaging concept, and I am very pleased APT has agreed to distribute the program," said Daniel Soles, chief content officer for WTTW. "I believe the viewers will be invested in stories of the harvest," he added.

"Harvest is the most action-packed part of the winemaker's year, when some of the most important, and nail biting, decisions need to be made," says Peter Backeberg, the show's creator and producer. "We were granted fantastic access to follow the winemakers and their teams and I'm sure the viewers will enjoy the ride," he added.

The series started in early January in some areas like Chicago, but you can still catch the last few episodes. Be sure to check your local listings. Visit www.vintageseries.com for more information, details, and videos.
