The Perfect Harvest

Occasio Winery, Livermore, CA

“Occasio aegre offertur, facile amittitur”

To know that the right moment comes along rarely and is easily lost.

John Kinney is a winemaker and historian in the Livermore Valley, a renaissance man in every sense of the word. When Occasio Winery approached Wallop about doing a film, the direction of the story was clear: capture John’s passion for winemaking and tell the story of his craft.

We shot it in black and white as an aesthetic call-back to simpler times. This was also one of the first projects we had a chance to use our new drone.


"Wallop Film has the wonderful ability to capture the essence of the brand through an approach that creates a true point of difference. They understand the critical aspects of storytelling, and the resulting film unfolds to reveal not just the brand narrative, but the human element that captures the audience."

- Lori King, Creative Director
