Short documentary examines Kentucky’s wine industry

To air on public TV this weekend

FRANKFORT, Ky. (Dec. 22, 2014) — Kentucky wineries are the subject of a new 30-minute documentary that will debut on public television this weekend.

UnbridledVinesCMYK“Unbridled Vines: Kentucky’s Finest” will air on KET at 10 a.m. on Saturday, at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday and will be rebroadcast through February.

“Kentucky’s modern wine industry has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years,” said Tyler Madison, co-executive producer and director of the film. “I think it’s safe to assume that Kentucky can now be viewed as an emerging wine region with a bright future — if not still a hidden gem to many. It’s not all a walk in the park, though; from battling late spring frosts in the vineyard to getting bottles on store shelves, we also looked at the challenges vineyard and winery owners throughout the state face on a daily basis.”

A year in the making, “Unbridled Vines” features interviews with a cross-section of Kentucky winemakers. The interviews are shown against a backdrop of Kentucky’s lush landscapes and scenes of the winemakers and their workers—many of them family members—in the winemaking process from the vine to the bottle.
