Art & Wine: A Perfect Combination

La Rousse (Malbec) has chosen one of my images for their new wine label and I couldn't be more thrilled with the results! I've been told it will be available in late August in the Central Ohio region at: Tasi Cafe, The Refectory and the Upper Arlington Giant Eagle Market District to start. 

This is a wonderful example of how unusual partnerships are formed at the Columbus Idea Foundry! Another Studio resident, Patrick Allen was pursuing his own winemaking project via his sources in France. Low and behold things came together and he needed an intriguing image for his new endeavor. He decided on the bold red woman "Francesca" to adorn his bottled harvest.
