"Why wildlife art on wine labels?" Before the wildlife paintings, we used a logo by Rod Ruthel, owner of French Hill Winery. Image One is the first label. Image Two is the cherubs and grapes (unused.) Image Three shows the mock-ups. We cannot find the original artwork. Image Four is the first Crush Party label. Enjoy the online gallery - current pieces in shop will vary. Remarques shown life-size. Old CSV Label

*Price given is for print without remarque. Image dimensions given are unframed, prices and availability are subject to change. A 3.5" x 2.25" mini wine label proof is in addition to the main image dimensions - only the Brown Dove print does not have a mini wine label proof. The mini wine label proof is included in the price. Framed dimensions include the mini wine label proof, and vary based on mats, mat cutting styles, and frame width. Images of framed prints are examples from late 2008: what is in the gallery currently will vary. Web optimized colors of photos of similar prints may vary, print color does not. Custom framing is available.

Each limited edition, hand signed and numbered winery label print comes with an artist's biography. Some are available in a very limited Artist Proof series. Pencil or color remarques are available on select prints. Unframed prints are shrink-wrapped flat onto foam core, which protects the prints from wrinkling much better than the standard folio presentation.

Call or fax an order to the gallery at any time. We can ship any framed or unframed print to your home. Specify the title (or what you're looking for as a subject) of the print, and someone from the gallery will contact you for shipping and credit card information. We invite you to visit the gallery - download a map, pack a picnic, drive on up, take a glass of wine upstairs, and discover more images by these artists.
