Vilafonté Vineyards, the first high-end joint venture between American and South African vintners, is launching ‘Reality Harvest TV’ in the form of a daily harvest video which will be released exclusively for on-line viewing. The videos will be released on the website (their rough and ready blog here, rather than the slick website) and on YouTube.

The Vilafonté vineyard and harvest team will document every day of the February/March 2007 harvest with hand-held video cameras. At the end of each exhausting day, all the footage will be combined and edited into a 30-45 second episode of ‘what happened at Vilafonté today’ which will be posted on our website. Vilafonté Vineyards, the first high-end joint venture between American and South African vintners, is launching ground-breaking ‘Reality Harvest TV’ in the form of a daily harvest video which will be released exclusively for on-line viewing. Because of the immediate turn-around times, the footage will be rough, edgy and as close to live as we can achieve. "We hope to capture the essence of this glorious part of South Africa and the excitement, tension and drama of harvest time in our cellar,” says Zelma Long, wine-making partner at Vilafonté.

Just checked YouTube and the first 42 second video - grape sorting - is up and viewable, so, via the wonder of the Internet, is shown below.
