Step outside the box and watch a new 6-part series that highlights the winemaking process and the glorious 2012 harvest season at three different Napa Valley wineries - Markham Vineyards, Chimney Rock Winery, and Rutherford Hill.
In 2012, Mother Nature produced the "perfect" growing season in California's Napa Valley -- yielding a rare combination of quality fruit and an abundant crop load. Growers and winemakers across the Valley expressed high expectations for a classic year that would surely produce epic wines. This outstanding vintage sets the backdrop for the new six-part public television series VINTAGE: NAPA VALLEY 2012. Each half-hour episode takes viewers into three renowned Napa Valley wineries and the lives of the people who make the wine. Watch video trailer.
"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.
