New TV series featuring NC vineyards to premiere Oct. 2 on UNC-TV

Settle back, relax and get ready to take some fun trips exploring remarkable wines and vineyards from the mountains to the coast of North Carolina. This brand new 10-episode, half-hour television series kicks off on UNC-TV Sunday, Oct. 2, at 1:30 p.m.

In each episode of “From the Vineyard in North Carolina,” host Lisa Prince visits two vineyards or wineries to take you on a journey capturing the whole experience from grape to glass. Prince visits with the cultivators of the vine and the artisans of winemaking to learn more about the grapes they are growing and the wine they are crafting.

At the end of each episode, Prince is joined by Henk Schuitemaker, certified wine sommelier at the legendary Angus Barn in Raleigh, to talk about and taste North Carolina wines.

“From the Vineyard” is a natural extension of its sister series, “Flavor, NC,” also hosted by Prince.

“I’m proud to be a part of a second public television series that is sharing the stories from a segment of North Carolina agriculture that has over a billion dollar impact on our economy and supports almost 8,000 jobs,” Prince said. “This series continues the agricultural adventure, visiting with the farmers and winemakers who are tempting our taste buds with everything from simple healthy snacks and down-home jams, to award-winning wines.”

In “From the Vineyard” we’re exploring everything from grape slushies at Lu Mil Vineyard, to award-winning wines with Richard Childress in Lexington, taking a llama trek and tasting vinifera wines from Divine Llama Vineyards in East Bend, visiting Duplin Winery, one of North Carolina’s oldest wineries, along with learning about the health benefits of the muscadine grape from Hinnant Family Vineyards in Pine Level. You just never know who you’re going to meet and what you’re going to taste when you take a trip with “From the Vineyard in North Carolina.”

The show is produced by the Emmy-nominated team at BlueWater Media, a full service television and video production company with offices in North Carolina.

Underwriting support  is provided by the North Carolina Wine and Grape Growers Council, supporting education and outreach for nearly 200 wineries and vineyards across the state.
