Sara Matthews.

The artist explores the wine regions of the world, photographing vineyards, wineries, wine growers and wine communities. She lives in Brooklyn (New York), but her work includes commissions throughout the United States, Chile, France, Italy, Argentina, and anywhere in the world where wine is made.

With her husband, Thomas Matthews, an important figure in the wine world, she shares a passion for winemaking. Including her book A City in the Vineyards, published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux in 1993, she has completed seven books, including: Mendoza, our terroir, Chile: The Art of Wine; Washington: The State of Wine and Wines of Chile's Carmenare.

Cristina Hobbs.

Born in 1984 in Hanover, Germany, Cristina Hobbs is an artist who now lives in Sebastopol, California. In 2011, she earned a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts in Painting from California College of the Arts. Hobbs shares her time between the wine regions of Northern California and Argentina.

Her parents were born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Together with her husband, Paul Hobbs, renowned winemaker and consultant to various wineries in the United States, Europe and South America, Cristina visited Salentein in 2008 and fell in love with its unique landscape. Then she worked with Sara Matthews, which allowed her to acquire a deeper insight of Argentina and culture, and later show that through their individual work.

Mema Hanon.

Born in San Rafael, Mendoza in 1963. A self-taught artist and multifaceted maker. Her curiosity has led her to travel through different artistic disciplines such as pottery, painting with mud and oil. The goal is to discover the expressive character of wine, with its hidden colors and different expressions. Thus, her creative impulse, fueled by her own world, is enriched by the noble vines.
