I have been given the great honor of creating artwork for a another Brooklyn Oenology wine label! Brooklyn Onenology is a Brooklyn-based winery owned and operated by master vintner and art lover Alie Shaper. Not only do her labels feature Brooklyn artists, the labels peel off the bottles- so you get wine and an art sticker!
In 2008 I created a label for her 2006 Syrah-Petite Verdot-Malbec-Merlot blend called “Motley Cru” which won several wine awards including New York Food and Wine Classic’s Silver Medal. Motley Cru 2006 was also selected as Best of Appellation, from Appellation America. You can see my label art for Motley Cru at brooklynoenology.com (click on “artists” and select my name) If you see this wine in your local wine shop- buy it! It’s almost completely sold out and hard to come by. I can attest that it is one of my favorite wines- rich, subtle and wonderful.
This year, I created a label for a wine called “Friend.” It’s a Riesling and portions of the proceeds will be donated to support animal welfare and health. “Friend” will be released soon- stay in touch to hear details about a wine release-Jen Ferguson art party; we’ll have wonderful wine to taste, posters and art!
This is a mock up of the label- not a final version- but pretty much how it will look. Enjoy!
