Vignobles Jerome Quiot is a family run winery. Since 1748 they have been producing in the famed village of Chateauneuf du Pape. Today Florence Quiot, her brothers and parents are caring on a dedication to craft which welcomes some 90+ ratings from Robert Parker. Florence was kind to host my wine photography workshop in May, 2012.
During a crisp Spring day, participants were introduced to the latest social media concepts and their impact when combined with photo story telling. Photography for social media is best when the posts are on brand and have a timeliness to support a core message. This one day workshop covered how to develop a marketing plan with the imagery that complements social media. Ideas were presented that could be tailored to specific wineries respective marketing needs.
During the second half of the wine photography workshop, I lead a live photo demonstration of how to photograph food and wine parings. The photos show a freshness seen in the photography in current food magazines and leading wine blogs. The four star restaurant La Mere Germaine was the location for the photo shoot and the creators of the beautiful and tasteful food shown below.
The day was a perfect way to taste the terror, the village and the fruits of the table.
