Swiss Wines Rock The Big Apple. The Wine Ladies TV.

May 2nd, 2010: City Winery, New York, New York: The secret is finally out! Swiss wines really rock!

The Swiss are known for their cheese, chocolate, watches and banking but their wines have remained more of a secret with approximately only 2% of Swiss wines ever leaving the country. Chandra Kurt wine consultant, writer and author of Switzerland, said, “it was time to let the secret out, that Swiss wines are amazing and that it was time to let the world know about it.” We were invited to New York City to witness a remarkable and historical wine adventure, “Swiss Wines In The City”.

Invited by Chandra, we brought The Wine Ladies TV show to the heart of Manhattan to the City Winery

Michael Dorf of City Winery, New York, New York.

Michael Dorf of City Winery, New York, New York.

City Winery is the only urban winery in New York City combining proprietor’s Michael Dorf’s passions of food, wine and music into a unique and exciting venue. Michael said, “For a long time I’d been enjoying wine as a fan-drinking it, taking classes, attending wine dinners-but it was not until I actually started participating in the process of working with the grape, turning it into wine, putting it into a bottle, and watching it develop over time, that I really started to understand wine. And when I would give my friends a bottle of wine with my name on it, most would respond by saying: ‘I wanna do that too!”

Just over a year ago two barrels ( Petite Arvine Cru des Domaines 2007 and Cava, Syrah Du Valais, 2008) of Switzerland’s finest wines from the Valais wine growing region, from two different wine producers Provins-Valais and Jean Rene Germanier.

These wines were shipped over a year ago and were patiently waiting for their bottling here in the big apple at the City Winery.
Now we knew this was a very special moment because only 2% of Swiss wines ever leave the country. So the secret is finally out, because as we discovered Swiss wines are wonderful and very special.

Georgina Reilly looked barely old enough to enjoy the glass of Jackson-Triggs Methode Classique sparkling wine. 

Having assured us she was over 19 we poured her a glass to celebrate her success! At such a young age this talented actress is determined to get her dream. To be a “star.” and she appears to be well on her way. At the young age of 23 this actress is experiencing her 3rd film at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Georgina  played in the hit movie directed by Bruce McDonald the “Ponty Pool”. This years’ entry, a short film “A Hindu’s Indictment of Heaven” where she plays one of the leads. No rest for this young actress as she is also currently shooting Death Row Records CEO Lara Lavi’s film “Sons Two the Grave” in Toronto. The film also stars  Tonya Lee Williams, Dorian Harewood, K.C. Collins (“Flashpoint”) and child actor Cameron Miles Jones on board.

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!

Positive energy radiated the room as the stunning award winning actress entered the set. 

This multi-talented, artistic lady is a talented stage actress having won the prestigious Dora Mayer Moore award ( 2009). Her portrayal in Miss Julie: Freedom summer (Outstanding Performance by a Female in a Featured Role in a Play or Musical ) was the award winning role.

In 2009 Raven starred in “Intimate Apparel” a love story set in New York in 1905, amid the ragtime. Last year she played the lead role of Esther, an ambitious and independent African-American woman. Esther has aspirations in conflict with turn of the century society. A gifted seamstress who has gained financial independence by sewing elegant undergarments for socialites and prostitutes.  She dreams of opening her own boutique. When George, a charming Caribbean islander employed in the construction of the Panama Canal, writes to her, a romance begins that promises to help her realize her dreams.

Raven Dauda’s superb performance is quite simply the highlight of the evening…wonderfully nuanced…she breathes life into the awkward, slightly prim and dowdy 35-year old woman rushing toward love.”
– The Toronto Star

The hit play “Intimate Apparel” is returning back to the Canadian Stage Company for a return performance in 2010.

Quite the fashionista Raven has also started her company Designs by Raven or DbR a line of striking and original jewelry designs. The “A” list stars have already taken notice and have been snapping up her designs.

Wearing many creative hats all at once Jasper is currently writing his second feature-length script “Brother Haunted”, a black comedy one of his favorite genre. We sipped on a crisp glass of Jackson-Triggs Sauvignon Blanc as we spoke about the challenges and rewards of his work .
