Photography by: Summer Staeb

Summer was born and raised in Southern California where she currently resides. Her work evokes a sense of nostalgia for times past, days well spent, and the moments that bring people together. She shoots lifestyle, event, fine art and travel photography. Most of her work is shot on 35mm and medium format film. (Summer shot the many beautiful photos for us during a short visit to Burgundy during the perfect "golden moment" of Autumn).

Michael Sager is a dear friend, ingenious restauranteur, and talented photographer. He accompanied us for several days in Burgundy during both the summer and winter months, and has been kind enough to let us use his photographs. Check out one of his killer wine bars in London (Sager and Wilde). His partner-in-life, Carina Soto-Velasquez is one of the world's best mixologists and has several restaurants in Paris (Quixotic Projects)

Becky Wasserman founded her company in 1979 to sell domaine-bottled Burgundies, a rarity at the time. She is credited as one of the most important influencers for the popularity of the region with an international audience. Today, Becky Wasserman & Co represents extraordinary wineries from all over France. They are small, for the most part organic or biodynamic, and do not like to fully comform to fashion.
