    WINE COUNTRY WITH THE FILMMAKERS. We are blessed to live in the heart of Sonoma County wine country, and we love showing people around. In addition to an IMDB Producer credit, a weekend with the filmmakers will include a private screening of the documentary and dinner at our house, as well as a custom designed tour of our neck of the vines during which we'll be sure to take you to some of our favorite sporty adventure spots. You can bet you're going to get the Swag Bag and backer's hoodie as well. And so long as you book this trip far enough in advance, we'll put you up in one of Healdsburg's luxury boutique hotels. Otherwise, we'll have to get creative.
