Storm is a look into the life of winemaker, Ernst Storm. It is an intimate portrait not only of the winemaking process and the beautiful landscapes of wine country, but more importantly it is an exploration of personal passion and what it means to pursue a fulfilling existence. Speaking poetically and candidly, Ernst shares his fears, his successes, and his musings on the balance of nature and artistic expression.
