Background: We started producing this series in 2012 with Napa Television for a simple reason, we had more content that we knew what to do with for our mobile apps and more stories to tell than would fit in our books. During our years of touring with clients in Wine Country we've done 100's of videos, and over time they got longer and longer. From there creating a TV show was a natural progression.
