TRADITIONAL WINEMAKING. CONTEMPORARY ART.
Our Story begins with a strong connection and love affair with the Arts, Food, and Wine. We had many family gatherings centered around performances by my son Jonathan, whom is enjoying a successful career in dance and theater. At one of these family gathering the question arose "how does an emerging artist get exposure for their work?" As a family with firsthand knowledge of the struggles for an emerging artist, we understand it takes a tremendous amount of hard work and perseverance to get your work exposed and be successful in your field. The solution was clear - gather artists interested in submitting artwork for our wine labels in exchange for the possibility of exposure. This began the joyful journey we are privileged to be a part of, experiencing the delight, joy and hope for new visions for all involved. Publishing artwork from aspiring artists is a way to recognize the artistic community. Plus we love creative people. The relationship of wine and art is symbolic and opens your hearts and minds to new life experiences. Spread the word - Art Makes the World Better.
