We biked 30 miles through the Willamette Valley on Sunday, tasting Oregon wines and searching for the perfect bottle to offer as an incentive for investors in The Wine Movie, which we officially start filming tonight with our first interview.

In September we plan to launch our campaign on Kickstarter, and investors at the $250 level will receive a bottle of the best of the 24 wines we tasted last Sunday.

It also helps to immerse yourself in the landscape. When you travel by bike, you start to see things differently. You get an immersive perspective, rather than just a look at a place out the window.
