American Wine Story is about wine. But more than that, it’s about the transformative power of a humble beverage to fuel passion and reshape lives. All of these people were called into a new profession. We follow dozens of these winemakers and aficionados from all across the country to learn what drives them, and also trace some American wine history in the process, and in the end we hope to leave all audiences with a dash of inspiration to follow their own American Dreams, or at least pause and consider the story behind the bottle the next time they pull a cork.
