Via Vecchia – The Old Way

This documentary-style short film was created with the founders of Via Vecchia, a fledgling home-based organic winery in Columbus, Ohio. The winery uses an ancient wine-making technique invented in Italy by the great-grandfather of winery founder and vinter Paolo Rosi. The film has been showcased as an infomercial and as a backdrop for holiday wine tastings. The winery has since grown from its humble beginnings in a family garage into its new facility in the Brewery District of Columbus, producing wine and providing a popular event venue.
