Wine in Film – “American Wine Story”

Post this show to your favorite social network

The wine industry always seems to make good subject matter for films and video. Some efforts are based on real figures, others on fictional characters. Some are romanticized versions of how we envision wineries, vineyards, and wines, while others seek to expose the unvarnished truth – embellished or otherwise. Less often, yet frequently more interesting, are films that inform us by documenting people’s experiences with growing, producing, or just drinking wine. The documentary, “American Wine Story” is a film that delves into the passion, the risk, the ingenuity, and the humanity involved in growing wine.

Join us as we talk with filmmaker David Baker about his film, “American Wine Story,” and his team’s efforts to capture, as David puts it “the story behind the bottle.”
