That didn't take long. Not even a week, in fact. The white wine that I bottled last weekend at Sannino Bella Vita Vineyard not only has a name, it also has a label, which you can see by looking just a few inches to your right.
By the way, if you don't know what 'Sonis Cellars is, you can learn about it in a previous post.
Back to the label, this is truly a family affair. The watercolor that adorns the label was painted by our little Picasso, Jackson sometime in the fall. When Nena brought it home with her from his school, I liked it enough that she framed it for me for Christmas. Fatherly pride? You've got that right.
I wanted to use it for a wine label too, but wasn't sure what to call the wine. Then Nena, the LENNDEVOURS resident muse, came through with a simple but terrific name: Watercolor White.
I still have four different red wines from the 2007 vintage sitting in my cellar, unlabeled and unnamed, but that can wait. I don't really want to start drinking those for at least another six-to-twelve months. You can bet that Jackson and Nena will be involved in the naming and artwork, however. They are my inspiration is most everything that I do.
