V is for Vino follows host and sommelier Vince as he hits the road to explore wine regions and their people, history, culture, food, and wine topics. In Season 3, the show focused on "The Spirit of Community" that is found in each wine region visited; the winemakers, locals, and tourists coming together to make a wine region great.
"The difference between good and great wine regions are the people. In a year where everyone had to rely on their community more than ever, we wanted to explore the risk-takers, innovators, and collaborative nature of wine regions,” says Vince Anter, host and founder.
