THIS WAS A GREAT PROJECT
Cork Screwed season 1 was a great one. Cork Screwed is being produced and developed for television by two Niagara residents with a passion for storytelling and the region itself. Ralph deGroot and Patrick Gagliardi takes the viewer on a visually stunning tour of some of Niagara’s most beautiful wineries. Here, abandoning all ego, our hosts will never back down from asking even the most basic question; “How can a bottle of liquid be dry?” “Is Ice Wine frozen?”
In the vein of ‘You Gotta Eat Here’ with the wit and sarcasm of ‘Dirty Jobs’ viewers will get a behind the scenes look at what goes into each bottle. Showcasing the majestic wineries nestled in the vibrant natural playground that is the Niagara Region. ‘Cork Screwed’ will intrigue the viewers to experience wine in a new light and even follow Ralph and Pat’s lead and visit the wineries they’ve seen so beautifully portrayed on TV.
Simon has worked together with Ralph and Pat on numerous projects in the past. From the moment that location filming had completed for the first episode, Simon went into high gear to turn the five episode season around in just a short 7 week timeframe. Ralph and Pat are here in the suite the entire way working with him to ensure the story of each winery and the fun lighthearted approach to learning about wine is correctly portrayed for the viewer.
They say wine is an acquired taste and figuring out what you like can be daunting. But what if you don’t even know the difference between a Pinot Grigio and a Pinot Noir. Gewurztraminer and a Zinfandel? After each episode the viewer will have learned a little bit more about what different wines have to offer, and how pairing certain foods with certain wines enhance the experience for both.
