e feel quite fortunate to be able to work with the very talented Bernard Dellario on a select set of our wine labels. His paintings graced the labels of our very first wines, the 2008 Viognier and 2008 Red, and are used as background images on this website. Look for his work in the future on labels for noteworthy vintages.

He exhibits and has won awards through several venues in the Washington, DC metro area. In the spring 2008 publication of The Nature Conservancy Magazine, one of his paintings was featured with a group article about plein air painting.
