Winter in the Finger Lakes!
|If only! How nice to remember the vineyards from only a few short (warm) months ago.|
It was quite a chore leading the photographer around for 4 or 5 hours, but in the end we think it was worth every penny for these photos - especially in helping us escape the winter for a moment! Take a look for yourself:
Peter Bell and Tricia Renshaw
|I had to make sure and “style” my subjects, although this one is pretty natural!|
Winemaker and Assistant Winemaker
|The last time we did this Peter and Tricia wore BRIGHT blue and |
BRIGHT red t-shirts. This works much better in our natural surroundings
Scott Osborn, President
|Scott also makes a great subject (we styled him too).|
What is this about?
|Here, Scott is explaining how turkeys cling to the trellis and flap their wings |
so that the grapes fall. Before you know it two or three rows are stripped.
Here Comes the Sun
|What more could he ask for...|
Ruth Osborn, Comptroller
|...other than his beautiful wife, Ruth!|
John Kaiser, Vineyard Manager Extraordinaire
|Our vineyard manager, however, was not entirely helpful…|
he just does not want his picture taken.
Peter Howe, Winery/Vineyard Wunderkind
|Pete Howe is always moving so you have to get him on the fly.|
Winemaker, or wine glass holder?
|Peter, frankly, would be the first to admit he can be a difficult subject.|
Taking a sample in the Winery
|Glen, however, did an amazing job capturing what |
I think are some totally natural expressions from Peter.
10,000 Watt Smile
|And then there is always lovely Tricia...|
Tasting in the Winery
|...never a bad photo of our Assistant Winemaker!|
Finger Lakes or French Countryside?
|All in all…a good day.|
Of course there are the traditional vineyard photos – but what’s not to love? This property is stunning and certainly makes for a great subject.
