Sonoma Bottle had the opportunity to photograph Carlisle Winery's Zinfandel catalog a little while back. We know that it means a lot to a brand to maintain consistency with their photography and seeing all these images together inspired this little detour through photoshop to produce a mandala of Zinfandel. It's all about quality control over the life of a brand. Quality / Time.
Our wine bottle shot photography business has had wonderful reception with the wine makers of Sonoma (and soon, Napa). We're exceptionally proud of the strong start we've had with the studio - but none of it would be possible without the partnerships and community that helped get it off the ground.
One of the most important parts of my community (as the owner of Sonoma Bottle) is the outdoor adventure network of Sonoma County. It's why we've partnered with a non-profit organization at the core of this group, the B-Rad foundation. When you arrange an order for wine bottle photography with Sonoma Bottle, you have the option to donate some (or all) of your wine to the foundation for a tax-deduction. It saves you on shipping and handling (or on a round trip to pick your bottles up from the studio), does good for the youth of Sonoma County, and saves you at tax time.
We were very honored to have the lineup of wines from Elizabeth Spencer Winery come flowing through the studio for classic bottle shots last week. The winery reached out to us looking for a reliable and affordable solution to photographing their catalog of wines and we were more than happy to provide. As is always the case with Sonoma Bottle, we managed a quick turn around on their bottle shots, knockout (clipping path / transparent background) and basic retouching included for just $60/bottle.
