Each year, the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) draws thousands of international filmmakers, stars and media to Toronto and for this years festival (Sept. 10-19), The Wine Ladies are entering the exciting world of web TV.

Georgia and Susanne (The Wine Ladies) set up their temporary TV studio at The Windsor Arms, 18 St. Thomas

Street in Yorkville – ground zero for the film festival – and have conducted brief interviews with the stars, filmmakers, writers, international VIPs and media representatives discussing favourite wines, what wines go with which movies at this years’ festival, favourite movies about wine (e.g.: Bottle Shock, Sideways, A Walk in the Clouds, Under the Tuscan Sun) – the ultimate in wine TV! Celebrity guests are invited to enjoy a glass of wine with The Wine Ladies www.TheWineLadies.com

We were thrilled to sit down and chat with director Jonathan King behind the classic “Black Sheep” and now “Under The Mountain” which premiered to excellent reviews at TIFF, and as Jonathan stated, “the audience laughed in all the right places”. “Under The Mountain” stars the genre vet Sam Neill, who also toplines Lionsgate’s forthcoming Daybreakers (also premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival). Much to our delight, Sam Neill is not only a renowned talented actor but a winemaker with a vineyard in New Zealand called Two Paddocks where he makes world class Pinot Noir.

In “Under The Mountain”, teenage twins Rachel and Theo investigate the creepy old house next door, they discover the Wilberforces – shape-shifting creatures that lurk beneath Aucklands ring of extinct volcanoes. Guided by the mysterious Mr. Jones (played by Sam Neill) and with the help of their older cousin Ricky, the twins must rekindle the unique powers they once shared if they are to destroy this ancient evil – before it destroys them.
