Desert Harvest in the Ica Valley
Ica Valley, Peru
Embarking on an immersive journey into the heart of Peru's Ica Valley, Dean Luis found himself documenting and participating in a transformative grape harvest ritual for skin-contact wines. The Ica Valley's significance as a revered wine and pisco production hub added an air of historical weight to the endeavor. Under the esteemed guidance of Pepe Moquillaza, a luminary in the world of winemaking, Dean Luis delved into the intricate art of skin contact winemaking. Documenting the adventure through his lens, the project would span 2 years.
