MELBOURNE, Ky. (AP) - A new documentary traces Kentucky's
winemaking heritage - from the early success to its disappearance
during Prohibition to its rebirth in recent years.
The film, "Vintage Kentucky: The Vine to Wine Experience,"
features such wineries as StoneBrook Winery in Melbourne and Elk
Creek Vineyards in Owenton, The Kentucky Enquirer reported.
StoneBrook owner Dennis Walter notes during the film that he is the
fifth generation of his family living on the same land.
"I see a sixth and hopefully a seventh and eighth down the
road," he said. "That's my goal."
The film, by documentarian Doug High of Covington's The PPS
Group, had its premier recently at the Kentucky Center in
Louisville. It will be aired on Kentucky Educational Television
several times between now and January.
"We are real proud of this documentary, and it tells a great
story," High said.
The film was produced by New West LLC and PPS Group.
