Heard it from the grapevine... Happy HalloVine

Okay I know it is a bit early for Halloween but....
I'm excited about a new little project.  Sue Bartolucci at Madonna Estate Winery

has invited me to create there annual "Hallovine" wine label.  I met her last year when I taught at Tangerine in the Bay area.    We're  planning some wine tasting/booksigning events at the winery in late Sept. when I'm back in the Bay Area. Who am I to turn down a wine-tasting?  Maybe I can even stomp on some grapes.

Not really sure what I'm going to do for the label yet...but I have some ideas fermenting. 
Sue said she wanted something nice and dark and deMeng-ish....well that's right up my alley.

Here are some of the Hallovine labels from past years:
This one is by Jack Roads

and this is by Sharon Bloom

and this is by Iva Wilcox...who I met last year in the Bay Area.

Should be fun...especially the drinking part.

The only way this could be more perfect for you is if it were a mezcal refinery asking you to do the label of their best tequila. Oooh, jump on that idea before someone else does!
