I had never heard of the word, merroir, until this wine label motivated me to look it up. The term, which was coined less than twenty years ago, seems to be to oysters as the term, terroir, is to wine.

Made entirely from Sauvignon Blanc.

EDIT: The second photo was added. Notice that the shadow is different mostly in that it bends with the curvature of the two bottles, which is what would happen if a real shadow had been cast upon them.

Setup
The background and tabletop are a single sheet of mottled blue art paper. A small continuous-light lamp fitted with a diffusion sock was in the front right area. A BorisFX light effect simulates light passing through a gobo on an angle onto the two bottles.

I really like this image Mike. Lovely light, composition and BG. IMO a black thick frame would suit the image very well. I just don't understand why the lower right part of the bottle is kind of bent though.

Thanks, Binnur!

I added a second photo to the first post that displays the shadows bending as they conform to the curvature of the two bottles, which is what would happen if shadows really had been cast upon them.

I just don't understand why the lower right part of the bottle is kind of bent though.
That appeared to be a post-processing mistake but when I checked the image file I was able to confirm that it is not. So, I have no idea what caused that appearance.
