A Year on the Hill of Corton
30 September to 27 October 2014
Jon Wyand is a wine photographer who travels widely but has spent over fifteen years specialising in the region of Burgundy.
For the last fifteen months he has been working every month around the Hill of Corton, an important Grand Cru vineyard site for both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the Côte d’Or region of Burgundy in order to record the life and work of the area through four seasons with the intention of publishing a book.
Having enlisted 2000 subscriptions from local wine producers, the 240 page book “Une Année en Corton” will be published on Nov 5 by Editions Glénat of Grenoble who will publish a French language edition of 5000 in France, Belgium and Switzerland. Hopefully a UK, US or Japanese will pick it it up.
This exhibition is a collection of some of the pictures that got in and some that didn’t….
