"To those who dedicate their lives to producing wonderful wine, beer and spirits."
About Tasty Tales
Tasty Tales was founded by Johan de Ligt (WSET certified) and Alle van der Wal. We love to combine two things in life we really enjoy: consuming quality food and drinks, and making videos. In 2014 we started Tasty Tales, a project about those who dedicate their lives to producing wonderful wine, beer and spirits.
A lot of hard work goes into producing wonderful drinks. It is also timeconsuming. The same can be said for filmmaking. We took a hint from the craftbrewers, winemakers and craftdistillers we interviewed: make sure you focus on delivering quality.
So weekly updates are just not possible and not our goal, but with more sponsors, websiteviews and subscribers to our YouTube-channel we are able to make loads more of these tasty short films. So join us also on YouTube and hit that subscribe button... after all, it's free!
To make it possible to keep on delivering quality content, Tasty Tales really has become a collaborative project and we are thankful to have the chance to work with some amazing people.
