Big Cork Winery



One recent assignment, completed just before July 4th and my vacation, included 17 new photographs for Big Cork Vineyards, in Rohrersville, MD.  What a professional, quality operation it is, as well as a gorgeous drive from Frederick, as I learned when I drove over to pick up the wine bottles.  I was constantly gazing around at the mountains and forests of the landscape, just over South Mountain from here.


Whether you go through Middletown toward Boonsboro and turn south on 67, or go as I did; south on 340 toward Sandy Hook, then north on 67, either way is worth it.  Of course, if you’re a Civil War buff, you can always travel to Burkittsville, then cross over the narrow mountain roads toward Gapland, as Confederate General Cobb did at the Battle of South Mountain/Battle of Crampton’s Gap on the way to Antietam.  I made that path my return trip, and am glad I did.

The Photography:

There were several complex elements to this project, first and foremost of which was the requirement to emulate the existing style already in use on Big Cork’s website and in their marketing materials.  Next was the fact that, while many bottles were ostensibly similar to each other, they were, in fact, just dissimilar enough to require individual handling for much of the assignment.2432-e

When it’s all said and done, the client is happy; therefore – so am I.

Many thanks to Mary Kate (Mckenna) Battles for the referral to Amy Benton, Director of Communications for Big Cork Winery.
