Introducing Opening a Bottle Wine Photography

My High-Resolution Images Are Now Available for Home Decor and More

4 min read

Welcome to Opening a Bottle Photography.

For more than a decade, I’ve traveled around many of the best wine regions in Europe and the United States, documenting the people, culture and landscapes for the pages of Opening a Bottle. Now, my entire catalogue — from Alsace to Sicily, Sonoma to Piedmont as well as shoots from non-wine destinations such as Colorado, Switzerland, Kauai and Colonial Mexico — is available for download and purchase through Photoshelter, one of the world’s premier websites for photographers.

Proceeds go toward expanding Opening a Bottle’s editorial through new contributors, new-wine travel adventures in 2021, and replenishing our inventory of wines available for review.

Photo essays on the site include Barolo and the Langhe Hills, Alsace, Sonoma, the Mosel River Valley and Sicily and Pantelleria.

Most images are priced at just $50 with a royalty-free license, meaning the user can modify, publish it, use it in marketing or print it for home use. All images are of the highest resolution possible, meaning they are ideal for fine-art prints and wall decor, as well as publication and advertising.
