Sixteen 600

16600 Triptych.

I spent last weekend in Sonoma with my buddy Sam Coturri shooting some photos and helping him design a website for the release of his family's wine, Sixteen 600. The site is still "under construction" but I wanted to share some of the new images here. I've shot with Sam before—each time filling holes in their archive—so this isn't a complete story, just some singles I like.

I focused mostly on the vineyard below his house but did get to spend some time with his dad, Phil, and visit the winery.

Phil's company, Enterprise Vineyards "grows premium wine grapes that show the vibrancy and individuality of terroir by using organic and biodynamic farming methods."

I still haven't shot a harvest: it's hard to coordinate schedules/travel/weather. But hopefully next year, I will. 

In addition to photos from this latest visit, I've included a few from earlier this summer when we photographed his family's olive oil as well as some photos from Kamen Estate Wines, Stone Edge Farms and Moon Mountian: all Enterprise Vineyards properties.
