Pemberton Wine Region Book
Forget about tasting notes, gold medals and accolades. This is a landscape photography book with a difference. Australian Photography Magazine described it as "simply outstanding examples of the landscape genre".
With images ranging from towering karri forests, secluded rivers, waterfalls, wind swept inland sand dunes to rugged limestone coastline, Bond provides the viewer with the broad brush strokes that define the region's beauty. Nestled within this landscape, rather incongruously at times, are fledgling vineyards and wineries, their rows of vines in stark contrast to the towering karri forests which characterise the area. The combining of imagery, of both national park and viticultural activity, is to reveal the essence of Pemberton's unique terroir as an emerging cool climate wine region within Western Australia. It is also a photographic record of the wine making process, vineyard activities and their footprint upon the district.
Pemberton Wine Region Western Australia is the first hard cover coffee table book to be published of the region. A selection of local wineries are illustrated, with supporting text providing an insight into their wine production and their relationship with this unique environment. This book is about a sense of place, and an emerging wine region. Pemberton Wine Region Western Australia was nominated for two Gourmand Book Awards, Paris, and is a quality gift and memento for all those inspired by the region’s beauty.
