Wine Diamonds: Uncorking America’s Heartland™
Runtime: 76 minutes
Forget everything you thought you knew about wine! Wine Diamonds: Uncorking America’s Heartland™ explores the difficulties and excitement of creating a new wine region in the Heartland and rewrites winemaking history in the process. The documentary begins by tracing the historical significance of one the early grape breeding pioneers of the Midwest, Elmer Swenson, and then explores the challenges of grape production, wine making and consumer acceptance in the upper Midwest. Five winemaking families share their personal stories of struggle and success as they attempt to create a new wine region. World renowned wine authorities, Doug Frost (Master Sommelier and Master of Wine) and Tim Hanni (Master of Wine) answer the big questions about cold-hardy grapes and wine. The film ends on a high note as key figures in the wine industry imagine the future of this new nontraditional wine region.
