Let’s Toast the “Little Guys!”

I met Amy Christine at the offices in Los Angeles when I took her wine tasting class. Who better to learn from than a kick-ass chick sommelier and wine maker?

As you can see in this photo, Amy and her guy, Peter, are an adorable couple with a shared passion for fermenting grapes. Their break-out vintage is the 2005 Hocus Pocus (how appropriate with Halloween just around the corner…)

Well, these two, being Angelenos and all, made a little movie about their oenological adventures. Just for kicks, they submitted it to Wine Spectator’s Video Contest – and whaddya know – they’re in the top FIVE!

Watch the videos in competition here (don’t forget to vote for your favorite...) and check out Amy and Peter's MySpace page here.

These little guys’ dedication to their DIY winemaker dreams make them Big Shots, as far as I’m concerned!
