A Passion for the Vine is a new documentary about people who have left other careers to pursue their passion for wine. When the filmmakers called to invite us to be a part of the movie, we were excited to be able to share our story in this unique way.
On a Saturday afternoon in the West Village, we set out with the camera man to do our interview and tell the tale of our journey - leaving corporate America to pursue the world of fragrance, and then discovering a way to intertwine wine and perfume unexpectedly during a trip to a Napa winery.
We filmed several cuts - at Malaparte on Washington St, a friend's brownstone stoop on Perry St, and at beloved Buvette
. The stoop scene - so very New York - made the final cut. As the rest of the documentary participants were filmed in California wine country, it was fun to be able to include a taste of the city as part of our scene.
The film also features some intriguing participants including David Coverdale formerly of Whitesnake and Whitesnake Wines proprietor, Jonathan Cain of Journey and Finale Wines vitner, and former NFL coach Dick Vermeil, owner of Vermeil Wines.

One of the most exciting times of the year in this great city of New York occurs at the change of the seasons - Fashion Week. The whirlwind of Spring/Summer 2013 shows has just ended, and we're having serious fashion withdrawal. September has had NY buzzing with outrageously fabulous fashion and design, and K&J followed it all.
VIP guests at the event were also treated to a sweet-smelling gift - a bottle of Kelly & Jones Eau de Parfum. We were delighted to be invited to be a part of these prestigious Mercedes-Benz/AMEX gift bags.
Now, if I can just figure out which dress to wear with this glass of Merlot.. -Kelly
