Clos du Val Winery: A new spectacular approach in Napa Valley

Napa Valley has been always in my heart. I lived in Saint Helena and Calistoga after I moved from San Francisco in 2004, before my Los Angeles days.
One of the most prestigious wineries in California: Clos Du Val hired me for an intensive two days photography project. From lifestyle to portraits, landscape and architecture, it was a great assignment. The winery also inaugurated the new amazing tasting room ! Timing was also perfect since harvest was almost finished and I was able to capture some activity during the last day of picking and work in the cellar.
The winery is based in Napa CA, on the prestigious Stag’s Leap District and it is one of the last ones family owned: www.closduval.com

Scope of the project: photographing the new tasting room in a mix of lifestyle and architectural photographs. I added some aerial shots as well by using a DJI Mavic Pro Drone (happy I got the commercial pilot license).
