A Day in the Life of Clos du Bois: Photo Essay

Clos du Bois pink

Taking our inspiration from photo essays and books that focus on one topic for a day, we’ve assembled our pictorial interpretation of California’s Clos du Bois Chardonnay.

We’re also sharing these photos on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr and LinkedIn. The hashtag is #WineFashion  and @ClosduBois.

Designer Mara Hoffman designed the the wine case and umbrella for Clos du Bois.
