A feature-length documentary film. For more than a century, the natural beauty of Northern California's wine country has drawn people from across the globe. But among the hardworking residents who made their homes there more than a century ago lurked a seedy and dangerous element: gamblers, thieves, prostitutes, murderers -- even pirates. Death or ruin traveled with them. And long after committing their untoward deeds, the spirits of many remain there roaming the hillsides, frightening current residents and turning this otherwise serene area into Haunted Wine Country.
