Penfolds Character Videos

We've always liked Penfolds wines - they've always struck us as a high quality entry from Australia, a country that gives us quite a few good wines. The company has started a new venture called Character, which is a series of Web videos, in a talk show format, about wine.

There are Hollywood-type celebs, and wine world celebs, and some interesting chat about the grape. We usually only watch Web videos if someone's falling off something, or if they're about Chocolate Rain or George Washington, but this is something that piqued our interest.

Check out the first two videos at PenfoldsVIP and see below for the info we got from Penfolds.

For a fresh look at wine culture and the celebrities that drink it, please check out a new Web series from Penfolds called Character.

Instead of the usual vintner or sommelier Character makes wine available to everyone, while providing special access to your favorite actors, artists and celebrities.

A cross between The Actors Studio and Dinner for Five, Character is filmed in chic restaurants across America and creates a dialogue for celebrities and their passion for wine.

Highlights of the show include:

* Chris Noth discussing which city is better to drink wine in… Rome or Paris
* Fine artists and bon viveurs Donald Sultan and Philip Taaffe discussing their work and sharing glasses of wine hand selected to match the character traits of their work
* Glenn O’Brien, the former editor of Interview Magazine, bringing his years of experience in the industry, adding flare to the celebrity and culture of the show

Don’t miss Character’s special episode where Peter Gago answers questions from a virtual audience across America. This episode will excite your taste buds with a fresh approach to tasting, talking about, and experiencing wine.

Character makes wine discussion accessible to everyone with its creative offering to the food and wine category.
