It all starts off a bit pretentious-like, all the time expecting some Hollywood A-lister to spout some meaningless rubbish about a perfume… and for all I know the initial voice over is saying exactly that! But this video, A Visual Ode to Wine, sure beats the tannins out of most corporate wine videos full of echoes, to me at least, of dark fairy tales.

This is Marianna Casarola writing as member of StoryTravelers. We are a tribe of visual storytelling artists with a shared passion for genuine travel experiences. We turn them into awesome visual stories to inspire people.

I am writing to you because we have just realized a visual ode to wine. Specifically, it deals with the Aglianico wine, produced in Basilicata (Southern Italy). It has been made for an on-line competition to promote the area. The video tries to explain the story that each bottle of wine can contain: people, landscapes, sun, places, taste and emotions.

  1. Absolutely incredible video!

  2. Hi Spittoon!
    I’m sorry it seemed to be “a bit pretentious-like”…didn’t want to give you that sensation! The initial voice over reads a poetry that tries to describe the light and the smells of the countryside in October.

    Happy you shared our video, I am very thankful for that!

    PS: @IshitaUnblogged I’m glad you like it!

    • Fabulous Marianna… despite the opening initial impression (I don’t speak Italian so no idea what is being said) I love the video!

      • Oh it makes me so happy! I know the poetry in Italian my be misunderstood and, at the same time, represent and obstacle for appreciating the video content to all those people that do not speak Italian…but I hope that scenes and notes combined together could work as universal language to spread the value of winemaking processes!
        So I promise to send you as soon as possible a translation of the poetry…It will loose its linguistic beauty but at least you will understand its meaning!

        thanks, again!
