Winemaker of the Year – 2013

I had the pleasure to spend a late afternoon with winemaker Steve Matthiasson and his wife Jill Klein Matthiasson at their obscenely gorgeous home in Napa to photograph them for the Winemaker of the Year story for the San Francisco Chronicle. They made a quick lunch for writer Jon Bonné and I; a delicious salad from their garden topped with sliced lamb along with Steve’s freshly bottled white wine Tendu 2013. A very relaxing shoot about a week before Christmas. Congratulations to the Matthiasson’s on the award.
