Shasta View Vineyards Zinfandel

Medium: Watercolor, Digital Photoshop, Image Size: 15″h x20″w, 2001.

I was commissioned by the Shasta View Vineyards to design three wine labels for their upcoming wines. They wanted to incorporate their magnificent view of Mt. Shasta, their vineyard, and a grape of each wine they were producing. I did a Zinfandel, Cabernet, and Chardonnay. Most of the label remained the same except for the different grapes which are shown just below the lower right corner of the scenery.

All of the kinetic sculptures in this design were created from entries that were in the previous year’s race. This art depicts the notorious mud pit. Though previous years’ mud pits were challenging, the 2008 year’s mud pit was disastrous. I guess I picked the right subject for that year.
