A Day In Wine Country Like No Other

In the vineyards you’ll shoot the terraced vines, and you will have the opportunity to photograph our live models with studio lighting, flash, and natural light. We’ll take you into the Barrel Room and to the bottling line, we’ll practice still-life photography, model photography, and capture the avant-garde Spanish-influenced details of the winery. Artesa was established over 20 years ago by the Raventos family of Spain, whose winemaking history dates to the mid-sixteenth century. During our Tour you’ll learn about Artesa, the Raventos family’s storied history, and much, much more.

After our Tour, you’ll enjoy a complimentary gourmet boxed lunch and private wine tasting. Artesa is the Catalan word for “handcrafted,” and since 99% of Artesa’s wines are ONLY available at the winery, this is a great opportunity to sample winemaker Mark Beringer’s outstanding small-lot wines in a magnificent setting. You’ll even get a FREE bottle of wine to take home with you!
