 INTERVIEW WITH RACHEL MARTIN, OCEANO WINES

 

How Wineries have used these images 

Going deep into the flavor and development of wine, microscopic expressions tell a story of structure and energy.

 The collaborations of molecules in wine reveal magical expressions related to age, sensual experience, complexity and beauty.

If you are local (San Francisco Bay area), no bottle has to be opened for this.  I can sample your amazing rare wine with a Coravin system.  The photograph will last a lifetime, long after the bottle is empty.
