Molecular Wine Expressions – Microscopic Images of Wine and the Grape

Grape leaf, magnified

Illustrated LIFE Story of Wine

How you can use these images –

Going deep into the flavor and development of wine ,microscopic patterns of shapes tell a story of form and function.

 The collaborations of molecules in wine reveal patterns of expression related to age, 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.
