Spanish photographer Oscar Oliveras has been crowned Errazuriz Wine Photographer of the Year 2021, thanks to a shot (pictured above) that captures a harvesting machine unloading Semillon grapes into a tractor. Oliveras’s image, taken on the first day of harvest 2020 at Chateau des Ganfards, in Saussignac, France, was named the champion across three wine categories, as part of the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year 2021 awards.
The photography prizes were announced via a live YouTube broadcast on 27 April, with an audience of wine lovers, photographers and celebrities tuning in from across the globe. In the wine segment, three photographs from each of the People, Produce and Places shortlists were presented with awards for their shots documenting moments of winemaking from on the ground.
“The range and quality of images this year has been extraordinary,” said Caroline Kenyon, founder of the awards. “They tell moving, beautiful, informative, entertaining food and drink stories of every kind from around the world.”
The judging panel was chaired by renowned food photographer David Loftus, who was joined by the likes of Magui Chadwick, family ambassador of Viña Errazuriz and Viña Sena, wine writer Joanna Simon, Vitalie Taittinger and Fiona Shields, head of photography for Guardian News & Media.
