11th to 15th of September 2017 – Photography & Wine Tasting Workshop – Bordeaux
Join Elise Dumas, Eva Kosmas Flores, Carey Nershi and Linda Lomelino for a 5-day workshop in Bordeaux, France. We’ll stay in Chateau Tertre, an 18th century chateau on a hill overlooking the Bordeaux wine valley in the French countryside. During the course of the workshop, we’ll visit Chateau Angelus where we’ll have a wine tasting and learn more about the winemaking process in Bordeaux. We’ll also explore Chateau de Malle, where we’ll have dinner and take in the beauty and rich history of the castle as well as its lush grounds. Along with the photography and styling portion of the workshop, we’ll also be discussing the business side of photography, blogging, social media, and cookbook writing. We’ll also be joined by special guests Laura and Nora of Our Food Stories.
