I think the WTA is a fantastic quest to find unique wines crafted all over the world that each express the land from which they are born. I came across Wine Adventure TV on a google search and I reached out to Cristián to see if he had interest in our wines and winery. After we got talking, it turned out we had a mutual friend in the wine business from Upstate New York. From there, we hit it off very well. Cristián was nice enough to include Shaw Vineyard in this historic project that we are honored to be a part of.
