We just got back from an awesome trip to Napa & Sonoma. I'm working on a really cool new wine book and finally made it out to the west coast to start shooting. Many thanks go out to LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy), who owns Domaine Chandon. We were given the VIP tour and able to capture the true atmosphere of the vineyard.
We would also like to show our gratitude to Francis Ford Coppola's winery (Rosso & Bianco). Specifically, Norberto, a 24-year veteran of the property who gave us a private tour of the operations. We visited a number of other great wineries: James Cole Winery, Hartwell Winery, The Robinson Family Winery, and Baldacci Winery. Jessica Pfeufer at Baldacci was a huge asset to us and instrumental in organizing the entire trip... we definitely need a studio here.
