Covela is a MUST for a fashion shoot - in Must
Rows of vines, piles of oak barrels and the breath-taking scenario of the Douro river: what a backdrop for a photo shoot! In this case, MUST
, the monthly luxury supplement of Portugal’s leading business newspaper, Jornal de Negócios, chose Quinta de Covela as the location for a prestigious fashion photo shoot for its next edition.
Among the featured brands
, that French marque that is a byword for luxury, Louis Vuitton
, stood out with understated elegance. The production team spent two days on the estate, foraging through the recently-harvested vineyards, venturing into our chilly stone winery piled high with oak barrels, snapping that last shot in front of the water mill, now back in service complete with its granite millstones and – why not? - enjoying the river views from the romantic ruins of the old Covela manor house. Of course the estate staff, led by Antonio Loureiro and Nuno Cunha
, was on call to support the production team. but photographer Ricardo Quaresma, producer Ana Campos, make-up artist Joana Moreira and models Philippe da Rocha and Fabiana
, also had the undivided attention of the estate’s three dogs, Alef, Spot and Teddy Roosevelt who followed the action closely from start to finish.
The next edition of MUST
is out at the end of October.
