Wilson Daniels Films Trailer from Wilson Daniels on Vimeo.
Bret Lyman, a Napa Valley-based filmmaker has created an interesting series of short documentary films on the vineyards, wineries and principals of Wilson Daniels Ltd.'s French and Hungarian properties. The individual films will premiere online over the next six weeks, beginning with the October 2, 2008, debut of "The Renaissance of Tokaji," showcasing Royal Tokaji. Wineries Lyman profiled in the series of Wilson Daniels films include: Royal Tokaji of Tokaj; House of Champagne Delamotte and House of Champagne Salon of Champagne; Domaine Faiveley of Burgundy; Domaine Leflaive of Burgundy; Domaine Pierre Morey of Burgundy; Domaine Philippe & Vincent Jaboulet of northern Rhône; and Domaine Marc Kreydenweiss of Alsace and southern Rhône.
The films can all be downloaded as well as viewed online. The goal of the series is to give U.S. wine lovers a look at the Wilson Daniels properties in Europe and foster interest in their wines. Each mini-documentary explores the history, setting, and distinct personality of the properties through lush imagery and interviews with winery principals. It's like a five minute wine vacation.
