Zinfandel Exuberant Pour


This is a special pouring scene for Zinfandel wine using a distinctive Zinfandel wine glass and a typical Zinfandel brand bottle.

Zinfandel is a black-skinned wine grape grown most abundantly in California. It seems to have originated in Croatia, but fully developed into a distinctive wine in Southern Italy.  The grapes typically produce a robust red wine, although in the United States a semi-sweet rosé (blush-style) wine called White Zinfandel has six times as many sales as the red wine.  The wine is slightly darker red than most common red wines, but not as dark in color as a fully aged Cabernet Sauvignon.  Zinfandels are very popular, partly because the grape’s high sugar content can be fermented into many different levels of alcohol, including those exceeding 15 percent.

In this scene, the wine is being poured quickly with a full tilt of the bottle (“exuberantly”).  Therefore a large volume of wine is entering the glass, splashing quickly upward and some is splashing out of the glass.

The glass shape is designed specifically for Zinfandel, although it is commonly used for Chianti as well. This glass shape was developed for Zinfandel by Claus Josef Riedel, a chemical engineer who was among the first glassware experts in history to recognize that the taste of wine is affected by the shape of the glass from which it is consumed. Here the shape of this glass is made to enhance the flavors and aromas of the Zinfandel.




This Zinfandel Exuberant Pour set consists of two bottles of wine (one open and one sealed with a wine object inside),  a single glass and the wine pouring from the bottle into the glass. Each wine bottle has individual components for the bottle, the label and the foil top. The full, sealed bottle of wine is included in the set to allow for a complete product render if desired. The subcomponents of  the wine bottles make it easy to assign or edit the individual materials as you need in order to create the highest possible quality render for your purposes.

The product is available in MAX /V-Ray with versions for Maya (*.ma), *.obj and *.vob coming soon.

The MAX scene file includes a light stage,lights,  camera and custom V-Ray materials for this particular wine and glass set.

The renders shown here are created in MAX and V-Ray.
