Streaming video broadcast format is now allowing for a new level of audience participation and interactivity with winemakers, vineyard owners, and restauranteurs. This is something we’ve all come to know and appreciate…
In Paso Robles, California, in collaboration with 92.5 Krush, CentralCoastLive.com launched their premiere episode of Vintner’s Vision on Sunday, March 4th. According to Brad Golden, co-founder of Central Coast LIVE:
“It’s a new style of wine and food show. Vintner’s Vision is an ongoing, weekly show that centers around the art and culture of wine along with interesting food pairings from the California Central Coast. The show will be one hour in length and will feature multiple hosts from the local wine community. Esteemed guests will include participants from vineyards and wineries, winemakers, sommeliers, restaurant owners and chefs. The show will be broadcast to the Wine & Food channel on CentralCoastLive.com. Additional guests may also join remotely via Skype video calls. Audience members can chat, email or phone in questions and comments and interact with the panel in real-time. This level of audience participation is unprecedented and will prove to be an integral part of this new type of video programming.”
Excerpts of each show are made available on the Website for future on-demand viewing. Golden continues,
“Our intent is to build a comprehensive library of entertaining and educational shows, that will appeal to anyone from wine experts and enthusiasts, to someone recently interested in wine.”
The programs are also intended to delight foodies, because chefs are also sharing their exquisite culinary offerings during the show. Viewers can watch these programs on their computers, smart phones and even on TV by adding an Internet-enabled set-top box to their entertainment center.
Our digital world keeps getting more fascinating, doesn’t it?
I especially like the station’s launch, because they’re reviewing one of my PS I Love You members, Vina Robles. Long time member and supporter of PSILY, Vina Robles is a gorgeous winery in the Paso area. If you’re out and about in Paso, you’ve got to visit Vina Robles… It’s such a beautiful wine house and so professionally done.
Host Pepper Daniels, program director of Krush 92.5!, interviews marketing director Simone Michel and assistant winemaker Julie Holme, Chef Antonio Varia of Buona Tavola Restaurant, and his general manager Keilah Smith. I’m going to present this Video to you via YouTube, because it’s done so well. You can also visit the Website for a lot more information.
Enjoy! These are some very talented wine and food people.
