It’s hard to believe that a month has already passed since we had this photo taken. It was December 17th and all the members of our creative E-team (equipo enológico) met at the bodega for the all-important coupage, or blending, of Botani. We sampled each barrel one by one looking for defects and were very pleased with the results.
It was also the only time all four of us had been together at the same time, so we arranged to have this occasion captured for posterity, and had photographer Wayne Chasen do the honours. He’d wanted to take the photos without our jackets on, but when we went up the mountain for the shoot it was clear that mid-December is not a time for shirtsleeves in the Axarquía.
Looking forward to Botani 2010!
