Bearshead Productions’ “Napa Valley is not just a wine country tour, it is a lavishly filmed tour de force. The DVD distills three years’ work into five hours of interviews and mini-documentaries, including histories of many of the Valley’s notable wineries (Robert Mondavi’s, for instance). An Index feature lets you click into and out of any segment–tour, history, geology, winemaking knowledge, to name a few–at will. By the end of it, you may feel like a Mondavi yourself.” This quote from Forbes.com “The Eye” describes perfectly a newly released DVD about the Napa Valley, its wineries, people, history, individuality and future.
I met Kerry last Monday at a presentation she put on for our office. Since then, I have purchased the DVD and plan to use it as a thank you, closing gift, for my clients. Here is some info about Kerry and her husband, James, from their website Bearshead.com:
Bearshead Productions is husband and wife team James & Kerry Forbes:
Kerry has been an artist specializing in special finishes for walls and furniture for many years, and has recently turned her eye for composition to digital photography, capturing evocative images of the Valley in all seasons. A strong background in design helped her to create the packaging and the graphic layout throughout the DVD.

Here is a link to a two minute preview of Bearshead’s Napa Valley DVD: http://www.bearshead.com/vids/bearshead.html. The DVD is best viewed on a DVD player and large screen TV. If you use a computer, you should use a good DVD viewer and not Windows Media Player/Real Player. Even with the DVD player, you may find a few functions which don’t work as you think they should.
If you find the this DVD as educational and entertaining as I did and you elect to buy, you can do so at Bearshead.com. All I ask is you let them know you found it by viewing my blog. Enjoy ………
