“When I met the winemakers four years ago, I fell in love with their stories because they were very much like my story. Because they were inspirational and great examples of what America has to offer when you want to work for your dreams.”

Adam began filmmaking in the independent film world and transferred that experience into advertising and commercial production for national brands like American Airlines, the Dallas Cowboys, the Texas Rangers and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
