Virginia's wineries are the subject of a new film.
Silverthorn Films in Charlottesville has created a movie called "Vintage: The Winemaker's Year," that is set to premiere next month on PBS stations nationwide.
The 90-minute film documents a year in the lives of a dozen Virginia wineries with the story of how far the current industry has come. Virginia's wine industry has grown to more than 160 wineries, many of which have garnered international acclaim.
Producer Bill Reifenberger told the "Free Lance-Star" that his company became interested in doing a film after seeing a number of stories about the growing Virginia wine industry. He calls the industry one of the bright spots in the state's changing agricultural landscape.
