THE ART OF PRODUCTION
WITH LEGENDARY FATHER / SON DUO:
ANDY KATZ & JESSE KATZ
Discover the art and pride of wine production in this illuminating interview with renowned winemaker, Jesse Katz along with famed photographer and Sony Artisan of Imagery, Andy Katz.
Jesse Katz has, in a remarkably short period of time, made himself into one of the most respected wine professionals in California. He was the first winemaker ever to be included in the Forbes 30 Under 30 list, a Wine Enthusiast 40 Under 40 Tastemaker, and had been named a Wine Spectator “Rising Star.”
Andy Katz’s love of photography takes him around the globe. From the deserts of Namibia to the disappearing Jewish World of Eastern Europe to the rolling hills of the California wine country, his subjects range as broadly as his travels and adventures. Each journey for Katz is a new exploration of images. Katz discovered his passion for photography at a young age and is now a Sony Artisan of Imagery, one of the original seven photographers representing Sony’s new cameras.
