This project was a feat, but a super fun one. Halfway through the project, I realized we didn't have enough footage or information. I decided we needed to film a sommelier. I was put in contact with Mandy Oser, the sommelier and co-owner of Ardesia in NYC. It was incredible talking to her--I learned so much and it really pulled my vision for this project together. 

Wine is naturally engaging to look at, so I had fun with the execution. I thought it was important to visually illustrate the scientific points to really drive home how they're working and how it's affecting your experience with wine. 

All design and animation work was done by Elaine Seward. This video was published by ACS Reactions in 2017.
