My name is Jason Elkin. I grew up in Napa Valley, and have been a part of the wine industry for as long as I can remember. I love food, travel, culture, and especially wine. For the past five years, director Brandon Katcher of Lost Summit Films and I have been preparing Jason Elkin: Uncorked for primetime. In this series, we endeavor to bring local and international flavor to sophisticated and adventurous palates alike - one sip at a time. "Jason Elkin: Uncorked" will reveal the world that surrounds wine. This is a must-see experience for travelers, foodies and wine-lovers of all levels. So sit back, pop the cork and enjoy!

This initial funding will be used to finish our pilot episode, described below.

In the pilot episode of Jason Elkin: Uncorked, Jason sails to Treasure Island, where he tastes unique wines in World War II hangers. Next, he travels to Napa and becomes the face of the Napa Valley Film Festival, interviewing directors, actors and celebrities. He also visits the first winery for dogs, and test drives a Maserati. Finally, he flies above it all in a classic Bi-Plane.

For the first season of Uncorked we will be staying primarily the United States. Future seasons will take place all over the world, including Africa, Japan, Alaska, Russia and Latin America. Each of these locations will include tastings, wine related activities, culture and excursions. To give you an example, in the first episode, along with visiting wineries, we have flown in bi-planes, sailed across the San Francisco Bay, and attended a film festival. Below we have listed a sampling of planned episodes for the first season.

Santa Barbara: Jason visits the locations made famous by the movie Sideways. Next, he takes it “off-road” with the Cloud Climbers jeep tour... A new way to travel to your favorite wineries!

Sonoma: Jason harvests olives to make oil at "Figoni's Olive Oil California" and visits the famous “Train Town”.

Calaveras County: Ziplines, wine caves and a frog jump. Jason drinks some freaky wines with the rubber chicken at Twisted Oak Winery. Next, will Jason and his crew be brave enough to spend the night at the haunted Murphy’s hotel?

Virginia City: Jason visits Pacchetti winery, established in 1896. Next, he has a shootout with the Gun City Slickers in Virginia City, then takes after the 49ers and attempts to pan for gold.

Vegas: Jason heads to Vegas with a bucket list, including simulated skydiving and dune buggies . Next, he climbs a four story glass cage inside Mandalay Bay to place a bottle of Uncorked wine on the top of the 10,000 bottle enclosure.

Russian River: Jason goes camping. He canoes with Burke’s Canoe Trips by day, and tastes wine under the stars by night. Jason takes his crew for a special treat at Russian River Brewing Co, makers of one of the most famous craft beers in America. As they say in the wine industry, it takes a lot of great beer to make good wine!

Hawaii: Jason makes friends at a Hawaiian luau and takes them wine tasting. Next, he gets a tour of a secret location and pours his #Bromance wine for World War II veterans.

Finally, we welcome any questions and comments, and will try our best to answer in a timely manner. Again, we sincerely thank you for taking the time to visit our campaign. We are asking for your help in reaching our goal and making Uncorked a reality.
