PBS Wine Reality Show filmed "locally"
The six-part series..(which began preproduction in December)....will feature five contestants, all with a strong interest in wine, competing for a chance to launch their own wine label, Whelan said. Contestants will test their mettle in every aspect of the wine industry, from viticulture to enology to sales and marketing.
Or, as the press release puts it, "In each half-hour episode, the five candidates must endure backbreaking work, long hours and the joys and heartaches of making the world's most storied beverage."
The series will likely include scenes shot in the Central Coast's most popular wine regions: Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara, which was made famous by the success of the 2004 film Sideways. - Wine Spectator
Continuing his efforts to educate the American people about all things food and wine, Ted Allen (food and wine specialist on the Emmy Award-winning NBC/Bravo hit "Queer Eye,") hosts UNCORKED: Wine Made Simple, airing on PBS stations across the nation starting April 2007. UNCORKED takes viewers into the heart of the vineyard and the mind of the winemaker. The 6-part series blends useful information, humor, inviting personalities, and exquisite photography as it travels around the world to explore the most storied beverage on earth.I'll toast to these shows! Salud!
Stop by and pull up a glass at some of the Paso Robles wine blogs, too.
