NEW YORK, NY – August 15, 2016 – FYI has greenlit the new original series, “Wine Warriors,” from Browning Productions & Entertainment & Red & White Entertainment. Production has already begun on thirteen, half-hour episodes, with the series slated to premiere next week, August 20th at noon.
Viewers follow the host, William Browning, as he takes the audience on a journey through the messy process of what it takes to create the wine we all love and enjoy. “It can be a very bumpy road from grape to glass!” And no one knows that better than the Northern Michigan winemaking families featured in season one.
The breathtaking beauty of Old Mission, and Leelanau Peninsula, near Traverse City, MI is the backdrop as the wineries battle the weather, pests, technology and sometimes even themselves, all with their family business on the line. The audience will get to learn the full year process of making the wine they love. From pruning in the beautiful vineyards, to harvesting, and even bottling; viewers will learn the process differences between each and every vineyard and winery, and what makes each bottle of wine so unique.
William also finds a way to have fun throughout the process while venturing off for some excursions from time to time, and also partaking in the wine created with a toast to end each day!
“Wine Warriors” is produced by Browning Productions & Entertainment & Red & White Entertainment. Executive Producers for Wine Warriors are William Browning, Gerry Vendittelli, Andrew Vance, Skip Starr & Tony Shereda. Hosted & Directed by William Browning.
