About

Best Bottle is focused around an intense competition, taking the best of reality TV and combines it with a global passion: the love of wine. We have a distribution company and with support from our Kickstarter Team, we will be able to begin production and distribute the show worldwide. We have the support of wineries and wine makers from around the world.  By supporting our Kickstarter campaign you become part of our team and allow our amazing and talented production team to begin filming. 

SEASON ONE: Oregon vs. California
SEASON ONE: Oregon vs. California

Contestants are divided into two groups, based in different wine-making regions to compete against each other, Mother Nature, and time - with each group crafting their "Best Bottle" of wine. Both groups include a reputable winemaker accompanied by five aspiring winemakers, known in the industry as cellar rats. The nickname "cellar rat" refers to "one who labors in the cellar (or barrel room) of a winery never seeing the light of day. Quite like a rat."

During each episode the host, and a celebrity co-host, guides the teams through challenges and competitions. Every week contestants who perform well earn rewards, while the poorest performing contestant is eliminated from the group and leaves the show. After a series of eliminations, the two seasoned winemakers are left with one contestant apiece to coach though the final stage of the competition. The winning contestant, chosen by a panel of celebrity judges and loyal viewers, receives a $100k cash prize, the opportunity to bottle one vintage under the Best Bottle label, and a custom designed advertising campaign.

Exciting right?! Well, now we need your help to get production started in the fall - just in time for harvest. With our funded money from generous backers, production will be funded to begin taping the show. "Best Bottle" can begin filming in the fall and be on televisions all over the world!

Cheers and Thank You For Your Support!!

Risks and challenges

With every success story comes obstacles and challenges. The "Best Bottle" campaign is a unique project that has various factors going in to make a successful show. Our main obstacle is beginning production in time for our team to begin filming this year during harvest for the winemaking process. If we do not secure enough funds before the Fall 2014 harvest, we cannot proceed with the show until next year! This is why our project is one of extreme urgency! With your support of our Kickstarter campaign, our exceptionally talented and skilled production team can greenlight production this year and we can get this TV series made!

Another important factor in our exciting TV series is the fact that we have already secured a distributor in Mance Media. Mance Media is a worldwide film and TV distribution company based at Sunset Gower Studios in Hollywood, CA and is well positioned to get "BEST BOTTLE" on a national TV broadcast or cable network in the US, on VOD platforms (such as iTunes, Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, etc.) and internationally in over 75 territories. This eliminates a huge amount of risk as once the show is completed, we will be able to bring it a wider audience and you as a backer will have the pleasure of knowing (and telling your friends) that you were an essential part of BEST BOTTLE's success!

In preparation for pre-production, "Best Bottle" also needs funding to begin the search for exciting and dramatic contestants who are or aspire to be a top notch wine-maker. Our challenge is to find unique personalities, talented contestants and match/mismatch their dispositions to make for a dramatic, competitive and exciting show!

"Best Bottle" needs to begin production for Season One and gain exposure for the TV series so that we may pave the way for future seasons. Once season one is complete, we hope to bring you many more seasons of "Best Bottle" with different wine regions competing (i.e France, Italy, Spain, New Zealand, etc.) Our potential is limitless and the sooner we begin, the sooner we go global.

Another obstacle is that "Best Bottle" will require more funding for continued success through future seasons. However, once we produce Season One, the revenue generated from distribution and international sales will pave the way for future seasons. By partnering with us in supporting our Kickstarter campaign, you will become part of the amazing team that will bring this awesome TV series to the world and start a global reality TV phenomenon.

The "Best Bottle" team is very excited about this project and won't allow any challenge or obstacle to slow down this show. "Best Bottle" is about a passion for something shared by many across the world - the love and craft of fine wine. This show will demonstrate the devoted and interesting characters that strive for the best in their craft and their efforts behind the scenes.

Like all good reality shows, "Best Bottle" brings the drama and the excitement. The content is what changes and makes "Best Bottle" unique, sophisticated, and fun.

This show creates a cultured and intimate experience with viewers and as a result viewers will be more informed and in tune with the art of what it takes to craft a "Best Bottle" of wine. Join our team and let's make a TV show!!
