WINE OUTSIDERS is a documentary travel series that takes us to discover out-of-the-ordinary wines and winemakers. The adventure begins with Felix M. Mendez, a TV producer, a restless spirit and a great lover of foods and cultures. Felix is looking to discover a deeper side of the wine culture with winemakers who follow their paths. Outside the establishment, they make authentic jewels and rescue grapes and vineyards that have been abandoned for hundreds of years.
His journey begins in Spain, a country he knows very well and loves. His partner in Spain is Aitor Menchaca. A few years ago, Aitor decided to rescue old vineyards near Madrid, the country’s capital. His first vintage has already proven to be a great success.
With Aitor, they go in search of other Wine Outsiders. We meet these risk-takers that are making unique wines. We get to know their vineyards, cellars, and lives and learn what drove them to search for these dreams. And, of course, we get to taste their wines.
Along the way, we also find unique places and people who are passionate about their land. Farmers, ranchers, chefs, musicians, and artisans. It’s a 360-degree journey that encompasses every site we visit, discovering organic and local products.
