We felt it was important to highlight Ellen and Scott’s unique contribution to Sonoma County, which is obviously world famous for its wines, but also has an incredibly rich yet somewhat lesser known apple heritage.

Spoiled to Perfection, the new Sonoma County-based web video series that unlocks the magic behind pickling, fermentation and the art of culinary alchemy, has wrapped up post-production on episode two and uploaded it to the series’ website and YouTube channel. Episode one, which was officially premiered at the Farm to Fermentation Festival in Santa Rosa, CA last month, is also available for on-demand viewing via both platforms.

In Spoiled to Perfection’s second episode, the series’ host and renowned winemaker Garrett Martin interviewed special guest Ellen Cavalli, who together with husband Scott Heath co-founded the Sonoma County-based Tilted Shed Ciderworks in 2011. The five Tilted Shed ciders are blended from heirloom apples that are locally grown in old, organic, and dry-farmed orchards located in Sonoma County.

“For Scott and I, apples are like wine grapes, and provide a structure and depth that common table fruit cannot,” commented Ms. Cavalli. “Apples persevere through drought and pestilence, and every year they show us new ways to experience them. We are on a quest to explore their mysteries by making beautiful, nuanced ciders that reflect our principles, place, and point of view.”

“We felt it was important to highlight Ellen and Scott’s unique contribution to Sonoma County, which is obviously world famous for its wines, but also has an incredibly rich yet somewhat lesser known apple heritage,” said John Gray, the Founder and Owner of Bubbies of San Francisco’s, which is producing the series in association with Rustad Marketing, with production services provided by Shoot Blue Productions out of Geyserville, CA.

Added Gray: “The story and passion of the Tilted Shed Ciderworks really comes alive in this episode, as does Ellen and Scott’s mission to elevate the apple to wine-grape level of greatness and respect.”

With two episodes online and more in the pipeline, Spoiled to Perfection is already being acclaimed for its remarkably high production values and broadcast quality, both of which are rarely found in a web series. Spoiled to Perfection is also generating a groundswell of attention from foodies around the globe; many of whom credit the series for inspiring them to plan a pilgrimage to Sonoma County, and discover in person why it’s regarded as the food fermentation capital of the world.

As noted, Spoiled to Perfection’s first and second episodes are available on the series’ website or via its YouTube channel. The third episode is scheduled to begin shooting in November.
