Stefan Sargent, Longtime friend of The Big Picture, and father to Producer/Editor Claudia Lang, has a lovely documentary that is currently screening at the Sonoma International Film Festival, titled “Pinot: Sonoma Dreams” or “Pinot: Escape from Wall Street.”
“Escape from Wall Street”, you ask? Yes, this documentary covers one man’s journey to achieve a fantasy covetted by many workaholics. He quit his job as a day trader with Meryll Lynch in New York City, to move to California and start making wine.
To quote Stefan’s regular column in DV Magazine:
One day, he wakes up in the morning and says, “Stuff this. I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.” Sound familiar?
Chucks his job. Grabs his GF and moves to CA. Re-born as a Pinot Noir winemaker.
Finds the fruit. Buys it, crushes it with his and GF’s feet (honest). Blends it, bottles it, sticks the labels on and even delivers the boxes himself.”
Stefan has spent a year following Jamie Kutch and his girlfriend in their endeavors at starting up a wine label, and the result is an inpiring visual storyabout a man and the pursuit of his dream. Click the image below to be taken to the trailer!
