Winery sponsors "Secrets of the Red Carpet" coverage at 2013 Spirit Awards.

Located in Amador County, the heart of California’s scenic Sierra Foothills and the epicenter of the 1850s Gold Rush, Renwood Winery is no stranger to independent spirits. So, it’s no surprise that Renwood should be participating in Hollywood’s beloved Independent Spirit Awards, which annually honor the best achievements in American independent film.

This year’s Spirit Awards ceremony is on Saturday, February 23 (a day before the Oscars) in Santa Monica, CA and will be televised that evening at 10:00 pm on IFC, the Independent Film Channel. Renwood is sponsoring red carpet coverage of the event with “Secrets of the Red Carpet,” hosted by Hollywood style-maker Luke Reichle. The award show will be aired live on Live Stream via and streamed on Renwood’s website at

“We’re looking forward to offering a live stream of the 2013 Film Independent Spirit Awards on,” said Lauren Joskowitz, SheKnows entertainment manager. “Our loyal readers are passionate about entertainment, and we’re thrilled to be able to connect them with the Independent film community.”

In addition to interviewing nominees on the red carpet, Reichle will give color commentary on all things fashion, including styles featured in the movies and creating character through wardrobe.

“Coming from a region famous for its rugged, stubborn pioneers – both gold miners and winegrowers – we’re thrilled to be affiliated with the Independent Spirits Awards,” says Renwood marketing and communications manager Jamie Lubenko. “We’ve previously been the official wine sponsor of the 2012 Film Independent Forum at the Director’s Guild in Los Angeles and the Hollywood premiers and premier parties of ‘Anna Karenina’ and ‘Silver Linings Playbook.’ This year, we’ll also be pouring wines at the forthcoming premier of new Tina Fey movie, so, needless to say, we’re totally embracing the intersection of Hollywood and Vine.”

Currently in its 28th year, the Independent Spirit Awards ceremony is as original as the films and filmmakers it honors. It takes place inside a beachfront tent in Santa Monica and brings together the top talent of the independent film world. Trophies are awarded for Best Feature Film, Best First Feature, and Best Feature Made for Under $500,000, among other categories. The event is staged by Film Independent, a non-profit arts organization whose members include filmmakers, film industry leaders and film lovers. The show’s 2013 host is comedian Andy Samberg, a star of Saturday Night Live.
