    • Synopsis
    • They say wine is an acquired taste and figuring out what you like can be daunting. But what if you don’t even know the difference between a Pinot Grigio and a Pinot Noir. Gewurztraminer and a Zinfandel?
      CorkScrewedTV​ is a fun, light-hearted approach to learning about wine.

      Each episode takes the viewer on a visually stunning tour of some of Niagara’s most beautiful wineries. Abandoning their ego, our hosts never back down from asking even the most basic questions — “How can a bottle of liquid be dry?” and “Is ice wine frozen?”
      After each episode, the viewer will have learned a little bit more about what different wines have to offer, and how pairing certain foods with certain wines enhance the experience for both.

      Sometimes the elaborate settings and multitudes of varietals make visiting a winery a little intimidating for a novice wine drinker. CorkScrewedTV provides a beautiful introduction to Niagara wineries and shines a light on how enjoyable it can be to experience the wine industry, especially when you don’t have all the answers.

      In the vein of ​You Gotta Eat Here​ and with the wit and sarcasm of ​Dirty Jobs​, viewers will get a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into each wine bottle. The first season of the series showcases the majestic wineries nestled in the vibrant natural playground that is the Niagara Region. ​CorkScrewedTV​ will inspire our viewers to experience wine in a new light, and explore the wines and wineries they’ve seen so beautifully portrayed on television.
