Under Vine

Data visualization describing shifts in the global wine market.

Under Vine visualizes wine market data from the 1970’s through today—emphasizing the shift from European centrism to the rapid expansion of global trade networks following the 1976 Judgement of Paris during which American wines outperformed their French counterparts in a blind tasting. Created by Robert Gerard Pietrusko of Warning Office and Stewart Smith of Stewdio. Audio by Hans-Christoph Steiner. Narrative by Erin Hyman and the artists. Built with Processing. Designed using the Bronson framework; a data animation tool created by Stewdio and Warning Office. Running time approximately five minutes.

Premiered at SFMOMA’s autumn 2010 exhibition How Wine Became Modern: Design + Wine 1976 to Now.

Released November 2010.
