Beringer Vineyards was founded in 1876 by two brothers from Germany, Jacob and Frederick Beringer, who built their legacy on the pioneering belief that great wine could be made in Napa. Today, one of California’s most iconic wineries known for quality at a variety of price points, Beringer’s storied heritage is rooted in the spirit of American optimism. In the style of his “Follow Me To” series, named one of the “25 Best Travel Instagram Accounts” by Frommers, Osmann has shot six forward-looking images for Beringer that depict his wife Nataly, reaching back for his hand and leading him forward. With a bottle from awarded Beringer’s Private Reserve collection in her hand, she beckons the viewer towards beautiful places all over the U.S. including the Rhine House at Beringer Vineyards, the Golden Gate Bridge, a lighthouse on New York’s Fire Island, and the New York City skyline.
Seth Hynes, Vice President of Marketing at Treasury Wine Estates, said: “Wine is fundamentally an experience, and one that Beringer promises to make a better one with our unparalleled history and the quality of our wines. Through the Better Beckons campaign, we wanted to visually capture Beringer’s belief that a better tomorrow is always beckoning, and a spirit of American optimism that can and will lead us there. The imagery and perspective created by Murad and Nataly truly brings this ethos to life through a modern lens.” Osmann, who also served as creative director on the campaign, added: “Better Beckons is a natural extension of my photography style, as it invites viewers to experience authentic and unique moments. Photographing material from a first-person perspective is ideal to capture one’s own sense of curiosity and create an optimistic view that suggests there is more to be seen.”
