A Cellar In Britzingen

A Cellar In Britzingen

secret grafic

The weekend before last I was asked to shoot the events for the 60th anniversary for Britzinger Wein. It's in a small town of about 800 people in Markgräflerland and surrounding it are vineyards which supply grapes to the winzergenossenschaft, or wine growing cooperative. The larger area is Baden-Württemberg (like a province) is the warmest part of Germany and is sometimes called the Tuscany of Germany. Of course, Tuscany itself is only about a seven hour drive from here which is a little mind-blowing.

Saturday was occupied with shooting the dinner and wine tasting but on sunday I had the opportunity to wander the entire facility and photograph the business end of wine making. Underground, t's a great mix of old and modern with a cellar full of bottled wines of different vintages, gigantic wooden casks, barrels, steel tanks and an impressive, brand new production area. Really cool stuff.
