Behind the scenes of our entry to the Wine Spectator Video Contest
This has been a very busy year for DiVino, with the (relaunch) of the DiVino Blog as well as our dedicated YouTube channel.
The song was first conceived after tasting a wine from Lanzarote, in the Canary Islands. Wine is truly transportive, and the particular volcanic terroir Canary Island wines is a perfect way to escape from the city, thanks to the magic of terroir. Also, there’s the rhyme: “Wanna go to Spain, You don’t need a plane,” which pretty much sealed the deal.
Meet Our Team
For the music, we wanted something catchy, disco, dance-y but with an element of Spanish flavor. The man behind the music, Christos Klearhos was at first apprehensive about putting together disco and flamenco, but in a stroke of genius the first draft of the track instantly inspired the lyrics.
Direction on Set
Fashion photographer and creative director Paul Morejon fell hard for the project and signed on help organize a shoot in our Harlem neighborhood, both on site on the front stoop and city streets, as well as inside his studio.
Director of Photography and Editing
Very special thanks as well to uNo VISUAL for an expert eye both behind the lens and in the cutting room. The magic of cinema is at another level in Ukachi’s hands!
Read the Lyrics
I Wanna go
somewhere far from here.
A un lugar lejos de aquí, quiero ir.
I know a way for us to get away.
Don’t need a passport or a suitcase for this holiday.
Where you wanna go?
Vámonos. Vámonos. Vámonos
Take a sip take a trip.
Near or far, that’s terroir.
I want to feel the heat of Spanish sunshine.
El calor, el sol esta aquí in Spanish wine.
I know a way for us to taste the sea.
Just close your eyes and let it take you there, escúchame.
Wanna go to Spain
We don’t need a plane
Open the door
With every pour
Take me away
take me away.
You can drink your destination
Take me to Isla Bonita.
I know a way for us to taste the sea
Just close your eyes let it take you there escúchame
Near or far, that’s terroir
Lanzarote toda la noche
