For over 30 years, photographer Charles O’Rear has been fascinated with wine and the process that transforms ordinary grapes into a world-class wine. To understand the making of two of the most renowned varietals, the bold red cabernet and the more delicate white chardonnay, O’Rear traveled 100,000 miles, visited four continents, talked with hundreds of winemakers, and captured thousands of unprecedented images. In many ways, these books are like the profiled wines themselves: full of character, lush beauty, subtlety, and surprise.
CHARDONNAY provides an intimate tour of the wine’s production, its character, and the places of its origin. O’Rear discovered the soft quality of chardonnay, a wine able to express its personality in as many ways as the stronger and more dominant flavors of cabernet. His journey took him from France, where the wine began, to the fields of California, where it has become one of the world’s most cherished wines.
