OKANAGAN - The Okanagan Valley is the latest subject of exploration for a documentary on Canadian wines.

Local production artists and videographers Jon Hunwick and Kenton Gilchrist of Asymetriq Productions Inc. are filming for their latest documentary, titled Ventures in Wine Country, the story of three Okanagan wineries and their progress of becoming contenders on the global wine scene.

The team is working with Oliver and Penticton-based wineries — Painted Rock, Covert Farms and Terra Bella.

Each episode of the first season will highlight a different step in the wine-making process, from the first round of pruning to pressing grapes in the fall. The team will take viewers through the different business models and approaches to wine making of the three wineries that all strive to make world-class wines.

Hunwick and Gilchrist built a pledge site to help collect funding for their project between June 23 and July 23, 2014. They also created a trailer to highlight the work they already produced and give viewers a taste of what to expect.
