Once the event began you could hear the lovely sound of Latin-jazz floating lightly through the air, leading you to the back patio area, where Eddie Manzanares was singing, and playing beautiful guitar. Members of the Monson family were also present, along with hundreds of people, out enjoying a beautiful day with a glass (or two) of great wine. The event was scheduled to end at 2pm, but I was still signing bottles at 3pm, and the party was still going by the time I had to leave! Great job to everyone involved!
When I was first approached by a member of the Goose Ridge Winery staff, in 2013, regarding their Annual Artist Series, and asked if I would be interested in showcasing my art on their wine labels, I truly didn’t know what to say (besides, Hell yes!). Goose Ridge Winery supports local artists... this impressed me. After looking up past artists that had graced the bottles of previous years, frankly, I was a little intimidated. And 2015? It seemed so far away. And here it is, and there it went. In the end, I’m nothing but grateful and honored to have had this opportunity, and would like to thank Kristine Bono and her staff, the Monson family, and everyone from the Wine Club who have shown such support for my work.
