About the Documentary
Red, White & Black is a passion project and the brainchild of Bertony Faustin, proprietor of Abbey Creek Vineyard in North Plains, Oregon. The first recorded Black winemaker in Oregon, Bertony began the Red, White & Black journey to help identify and tell the stories of other minority winemakers. As the project has taken shape, more minorities in winemaking have surfaced and an important story has become ever more important. The purpose of Red White & Black is to tell the story of minority winemakers in Oregon.
To highlight those people who are deeply entrenched, have their livelihood on the line but somehow are missed by the press and not often included openly in the larger Oregon wine community. This is to tell the story of what life is like, what hurdles, acceptances, challenges and opportunities exist. To share what it is like to be a person of color or LGBT in a generally white, high-brow industry. But most importantly, this documentary is intended to encourage other minorities to step outside the boundaries put around them and pursue their dreams. If your dream is to make wine, then choose a path that will realize your dream as a winemaker.
