Two Days in Wine Country with SAARLOOS AND SONS

Well, let’s be honest—great things are bound to happen when you mix cameras and wine with a burly, wildly entertaining winemaker. Keith Saarloos and his family graciously allowed Moon Tide’s crew to get a peek into their world in the quaint town of Los Olivos. The two-day shoot captured the story behind the family’s creed “Honor + Prepare.” Lots of passion, love and surprisingly, a bit of reluctance play a big role in how Saarloos and Sons Wine Co. was born. Stay tuned for the final film set to launch in June with the debut of Moon Tide’s newest media brand, Golden State—an online magazine celebrating the authentic California lifestyle.
