Segment-1: Oregon Winemaker "Fueled by Passion and Desire: Borne by Callused Hands" - Joe Dobbes

Joe understands the important role terroir plays in the character development of wine. Two delicious ideas this holiday season are Dobbes Family Estate 2007 Pinot Gris, Willamette Valley, Oregon, 100% stainless steel fermented and Dobbes Family Estate 2007 Patricia's Cuvée Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon, both are created with Dobbes proprietary yeast strain.

Segment-3: A Legacy That Sparkles "A Year in the Life of J Vineyards" YouTube Video - George Rose
 
You have to take five minutes out of your busy life to watch Professional Photographer George Rose's stunning video titled "A Year in the Life of J Vineyards." George chose an uplifting famous 20th century score to accompany his photographs: Aaron Copeland's 3rd movement from The Red Pony suite circa 1938. The aerial photos were shot from a helicopter hovering at about 500 feet off the ground. This time of year we want to remind you that your life too can sparkle with an open bottle of J Vintage Brut in magnum, J Vintage Brut Late Disgorged, J Brut Rosé NV, or J Cuvée 20 Brut NV, shared with family and friends.

Segment-4: Tannin Teeth Can Now Wipe That Wine Off Your Smile with Wine Wipes - Kimberly Walker
 
Kimberly Walker likes red wine but not the unattractive dark film that red wine stain leaves on your smile so much so that she set out to solve the common problem. Walker created Borracha Wine Wipes, a proprietary blend of natural stain-removing and teeth-protecting ingredients available in a convenient 20-wipe compact, complete with a mirror. She enlisted the help of a world-renowned chemical laboratory to turn her recipe into a first-of-its-kind formula. Wine Wipes retails for $6.95 per compact; three for $20.
