Edible Santa Barbara Wine Label Artwork Contest
—Best Sense of Family—
What the Judges Said: Suggests personal, small batch, family. I really enjoy the contrast between the large, blocky type on this label and the handwritten name. The vine illustration works well with the type, too. Stylish and informative.
From the winemaker: “We are a husband and wife team that in 2020 celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary and our 31st year in the wine business. By the way, “J. Dirt” morphed from my daughter’s nick name for me “James, the butler” which was a joke at first but stuck. Our winemaking goal each year is to find the blocks and varieties that most represent the uniqueness of each vineyard site and the character of the growing season. Then using our Biodynamically grown grapes and applying Biodynamic winemaking practices, we highlight the purity of each wine’s sense of place and time.”
Many thanks to our judges: Harriet Eckstein, Jennifer LeMay and Michael Nicola.
