Pic of the Vine - September 2017

Saturday, September 30, 2017

Welcome to the controlled chaos that is crush! All around Washington, all around the clock, some 900+ wineries are delivering bins, picking grapes, sifting stems and crushing the good stuff to make the 2017 vintages. Resident photographer Richard Duval lives for this season, relentlessly roaming 14 appellations to photograph Washington winemakers at their best, if not their most tired.

 “Though wine is often and rightly described as elegant, the fact is winemaking is a lot of hard, sweaty work,” noted Duval. “Early morning in Woodinville’s Warehouse District, I came upon Pam Adkins, owner/winemaker for Adrice Wines, working over her Merlot. Leaning over her shoulder, I captured a slice of the real gritty work of crush.”
