I was such a lucky duck to enjoy a beautiful week in Napa, California this month, painting in the private tasting room of Etude Winery!
I had an expert team to work with on the Etude Winery mural, including art consultant Freda Scott and Lisa Wright, who manage all the creative work for the parent company, Treasury Wine Estates. The maps blend art and function. The winemaker will use the artwork in the private tasting room to explain to wine enthusiasts how terroir, the natural environment in which a particular wine is produced, contributes to the aromas and flavors of the pinot grapes. Let’s just say, I was glad there was no quiz at the end of the project.
