But whether composing orchestral action, or tender melodies, Alan Silvestri's work has always been identifiable by its keen sense of melody and theme. He has won 2 Emmy Awards for Outstanding Music Composition for a Series (Original Dramatic Score) for Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey: Standing Up in the Milky Way (2014) and Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music for Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey (2014)Long time residents of the Monterey Peninsula, the Silvestri family has embarked on a new venture as the founders of Silvestri Vineyards. Their Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Pinot Blanc, Barbera and Pinot Gris wines show that lovingly cultivated fruit has a music all its own. "There's something about the elemental side of wine making that appeals to me" he says. "Both music making and wine making involve the blending of art and science. Just as each note brings it own voice to the melody, each vine brings it's own unique personality to the wine".Whether in his studio or the Silvestri vineyard in Carmel Valley, Alan continues to find inspiration and passion for music, film, wine, and life in one of the most beautiful places on earth...the Monterey Peninsula.
