Entrants from around the world submitted their best pictures of wine to the Errazuriz Wine Photographer of the Year 2016 competition. Robert Holmes was crowned this year’s winner for his atmospheric photo of barrels at Maysara winery in Oregon.

His photo was displayed at a ceremony in London this week, as part of the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year 2016 competition.

Sophie Wren, brand manager for Chilean wine Errazuriz, said, ‘there were over 7,000 images and films entered into the awards internationally and the standard was phenomenal. Robert’s image stood out from the rest in this category, however, for its beautiful lighting and atmosphere, which takes you right into the picture.’

The wine photography section of the Pink Lady competition is divided into three sections, and Holmes won the ‘place’ sub-category before going on to take the overall wine category prize.

He wins a year supply of Errazuriz.

Matt Wilson won the ‘people’ category with his shot entitled ‘skin contact’. See the photo below.

    Would it be possible to make a correction on the last image description? The name of my image is “Press 2”. It is Grenache, but is Arizona grapes being pressed in southern Arizona at LDV Winery. My last name is spelled Bonifield. If you could make those changes I would be so grateful. Thank you very much!
