I always have a blast when I go to Basel Cellars. It’s a world-class facility, great wine and unrivaled hospitality. This venue is so much more than just a tasting room. They have overnight accommodations, 70,000 gallon pool, private theatre, spa/cabana, killer views of the vineyards and Blue Mts… you get the idea!
I did a Google night shoot for Henry Earl Cellars in Walla Walla, WA last week and am stoked with the results. This is a gorgeous tasting room in the heart of downtown Walla Walla, all brick and red leather with a secluded upstairs loft and two fireplaces. Not to be missed on any tasting tour of Walla Walla!
I had so much fun shooting this for SkyLite Cellars. Ashley was so easy to work with and Ernie the dog loved the spotlight! This is a special place, with the architecture taking it’s cue from a wine barrel. They have a great outdoor seating area with a fire pit, and a very comfortable secret little room upstairs for some peace and quiet. And winemaker Greg Matiko has been winning lots of awards recently. Be sure to stop by on your way into (or out of) Walla Walla. You won’t be disappointed!
It was so nice to work with Cougar Crest again. I did an interview with owner/winemaker Debbie Hanson a few years ago for idrinkyourwine.com
Since then, they have continued to produce award-winning wine and have added to their collection of Jeffrey Hill original art. It was a joy to produce this Google Street View | Trusted panoramic interactive virtual tour for them. Ever wondered what it’s like down in the Library? I was allowed to panorama down into it. Check it out! I even rather enjoyed having to come back in the afternoon to finish up the outdoor shots. Not to be missed on Old Hiway 12 at Frenchtown Rd.

I went out for some R&R and a little networking yesterday at Basel Cellars in Walla Walla. Thought I might as well do a panorama of the grounds while I was there. What a magnificent venue! Not shown is the huge pool/spa area in the back or the guest accommodations. Thanks to winemaker Brian and hospitality director Woody for showing me such a great time. Look for a full tour of the tasting room soon!
