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)
SEASON 2 PARTNERS
This season would not be possible without the support from the following premier partners. We have teamed up with leaders in our industry who have in-depth, personal knowledge of this historic region. Follow along on their social channels as we work together to bring you access to personal experiences, wine access, and curated recommendations to accompany this podcast season.
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.
La Paulée is a celebration of the greatest wines of Burgundy hosted annually in New York and other cities, features a series of small dinners, tastings, and seminars, culminating in the event's signature Grand Tasting and Gala Dinner.
