Creative Talk: Art & Wine Pairing
After 8 years of working for a branding and design agency, Sarie Moolenburgh transformed her photography hobby into a full time job, working for various companies and brands. Sarie will tell about her passion for photography and will take us through the process of making each of her art pieces.
As every photograph has a story, so does wine, and the two go together very well. Therefore, Beta Wine Studio and Sarie teamed up to prepare an interesting wine and art pairing evening. Can you guess which wine matches with each photograph?
