Winemakers to Watch 2013, San Francisco Chronicle

Matthew Rorick

Matthew Rorick of Forlorn Hope produces his Nacré Semillon from these vines at the Yount Mill vineyard near Yountville, CA on January 13, 2013.


It was a pleasure to meet and photograph four up and coming winemakers for the San Francisco Chronicle. I traveled to Napa Valley, Sonoma and Paso Robles to make these photographs. The articles appeared in the Chronicle’s Food & Wine Section on Superbowl Sunday Feb 3, 2013. The article with the most photos lead off the section. It can be read on line at sfgate. There are individual stories for the four winemakers. Matthew Rorick of Forlorn Hope, Anthony Yount of Denner and Kinero, Katy Wilson of Kamen and LaRue, and Tadeo Borchardt of Neyers. Thanks to my photo assistant Carla Crawley.
