Kendall-Jackson president Rick Tigner donned a disguise earlier this year — quite a good one, evidently — and as TV cameras rolled he played the role of a visitor keen to learn how K-J makes wine.
Rick Tigner, the president of Kendall-Jackson, dressed down for the filming of the episode of CBS' "Undercover Boss" that will be aired Jan. 29.
Tigner's now come clean about what was really going on. The camera crew was with CBS's popular "Undercover Boss," and Tigner was the first winery chief to dress down, make up a ruse and infiltrate the inner workings of his company's operations for the sake of good television.
The "Undercover Boss" episode featuring his discoveries will be aired on CBS at 8 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 29.
Tigner has said that going incognito and talking to K-J employees about their work and the hugely popular wines it produces was great fun, very educational and also quite emotional.
