Q & A with Roman Roth of Wölffer Estate Vineyard

Greenhouse Gallery: Gerard Puvis's Wine Label Prints

 

A renowned artist who exhibits around the world, Gerard Puvis produces whimsical celebrations of wine. He first crafts sculptures from the neck foils of wine bottles, then creates prints that reference the original three-dimensional pieces. Many of his prints have appeared on French wine labels, completing the process at the origin of inspiration.

 

A selection of Puvis's prints that were commissioned by Napa Valley's Kelham Vineyards will be on display in our Greenhouse Gallery through August.
