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.

Click here to see the first portrait and scroll through to view each of the 10 “Greatest Winemakers” from Burgundy, complete with comments from Colin on what he is trying to convey with each image.
