A stunning monograph, depicting the real, unstaged, natural beauty of California’s wine industry by a photographer and wine industry insider

Behind the polish and the glamour of the tasting room is an industry notable for its complex labor challenges and its constant duel against unforgiving natural conditions. Longtime Napa-based photographer Jimmy Hayes, who has been documenting the California wine industry since 2014, offers an intimate look at the demanding reality and rugged beauty of winemaking. Hayes’s structural, minimal, and poignant photographs present unromanticized, unscripted beauty and quietly magnificent details from an insider’s vantage point. To work with wine is to work hard, with one’s whole body, mind, and heart-and it’s in those messy moments where the real beauty lies.
