Burgundy’s stars seen in new light9th February, 2012 by Patrick Schmitt
In advance of an upcoming photographic exhibition of the world’s greatest winemakers, db has compiled a preview of the portraits from Burgundy.
The pictures have all been taken by Colin Hampden-White and form part of the Greatest Winemakers series, following the photographer’s success with a show comprising 20 pictures of Bordeaux’s top vintners in December 2010.
Over the following pages are 10 portraits of the most revered personalities in Burgundy, which will feature in April at the Rebecca Hossack gallery in London.
A further further 11 pictures of top characters from Champagne will also be exhibited at the gallery, and we will be bringing readers a preview when Colin has completed the full collection.
As previously reported by db, Colin, who is a wine enthusiast and close friends with Henry Matson of Farr Vintners, selected the personalites having questionned merchants, wine writers and friends in London.
