We started producing this 'industry' series in 2012 with Napa Television for a simple reason, through writing our tour books, photography and smart phone apps we've done 100's of videos. From there a TV show was a natural progression. It seeks to answer the question of how a very small number of people who work in this industry deal so successfully with millions of visitors, most of whom are inebriated.
Here are some recent episodes. The shows are distributed from coast to coast through the PEG Network (Public, Education, Government) so they go out to millions of households through the United States. Enjoy!
