A Chicago wine merchant who imports quite a few of the growers coming to RAW WINE, has a library of videos including interviews with 9 growers who are joining us for RAW WINE London this weekend! So, for a snapshot of a few of the exciting people you’ll be meeting Sunday and Monday, have a peak at the videos below (click on the photo!). They’re all part of Candid’s “As a Winemaker” series.
A Word about Candid Wines (by Damien and Sean)
Ask a Winemaker is an outgrowth of my [Damien’s] desire to allow winemakers to speak for themselves at Candid Wines. I started filming with a crappy little camera and no sense for lighting or sound back in 2007, fascinated by what I was learning on visits to wineries around the world. Here is evidence of the earliest efforts, when I wasted a great opportunity to chat with Olivier Humbrecht. Fast forward to 2012 and Sean Berringer, an investor in Red and White Wines in Chicago and a professional video editor, gently but firmly indicated that he loved the idea and might know how to film and produce them a lot more professionally. Sean and I jumped a plane to California for harvest 2013 soon thereafter and haven’t looked back. We now have more than 500 videos on anything and everything we can think to ask winemakers, vineyard owners, and growers about grapes, choices in the vineyard and winemaking. Our website is in development, so please refer to our Youtube page, connect with us on Twitter or find us on Facebook.
