Resumen del Libro
More than 100 photographs taken by well-known wine industry photographer Sara Matthews have been collected in the new book Chile: The Art of Wine will be published in January 2004 by The Wine Appreciation Guild. Matthews creates striking images that emphasize the play of shape, color, light and shadow, and captures the unique diversity and spectacular beauty of Chiles vineyards and wineries. Through the book I hope the reader can see Chiles beauty and understand how Chilean wineries produce wines of such great character,? explains Sara Mathews. ?Chile is unique because of its geography, its culture and its people. I have tried to portray this uniqueness through my photographs, with each chapter showing a different aspect of each wine region. Some chapters, such as ?The Flow?, are more conceptual, embracing mountain streams and flowing wine. Other chapters show the majesty of the mountains or the teams of people who create Chiles fine, distinctive wines.? As global awareness of the quality and beauty of Chilean wines increases, so does the curiosity about this premium winegrowing nation. This is the first comprehensive photo essay of Chilean vineyards, wineries and people, explains publisher Elliott MackeySara Matthews has specialized in wine photography for editorial and corporate clients since 1986 and has photographed in the U.S., France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Cyprus and Argentina as well as Chile.
