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.
Jimmy Hayes has spent more than 20 years in the wine industry working as a commercial photographer, winery director, sommelier, and cellar worker. He lives in Napa, California. Rajat Parr, co-founder of Domaine de la Côte, is a three-time James Beard Award winner and one of the world’s foremost wine experts. He lives in Santa Barbara. Fred Lyon, San Francisco’s “Brassaï,” has worked as a magazine photographer for more than 75 years, and his iconic work has appeared in exhibitions across the United States.
