KCC15Our team met late last week to discuss filming updates and have a business strategy meeting prior to launching our Indiegogo (crowd funding campaign).  We talked about the places where we’ve shot, locations where we are planning to go, and the nuts and bolts of creating an interesting and captivating documentary film about what’s happening in the Midwest wine industry.

We’re pleased with the process we’ve achieved so far and our “pitch piece” (the fundraising appeal video we’ll launch soon) is making good progress — thanks to Kirk for his editing finesse.  Our team is developing several “perks” for those that invest in our film and we’re looking forward to sharing that with you in February.  We’ll have ways for you to donate both financially and through in-kind donations (of stuff or services or time).  Wouldn’t it be cool to know you were instrumental in making the first feature length motion picture about the exciting Midwest wine world!?!?

Over this past weekend we scouted a few eastern Iowa wineries: Tabor Home Vineyard and Winery (Baldwin), Iowa Grape Vines (Maquoketa), and Wide River Winery (Clinton).  We tasted some really nice wines, met some great folks and got a deeper understanding of what’s happening across the region.  Here are a few pictures we snapped.

Thank you – the Wine Diamonds Team!
