I have been envisioning this show since last year. Taking workshops from Alyson B. Stanfield made me realize I needed to start focusing on showing my work. So, I had an idea last year to combine wine with art. Since I love both, it seemed like a perfect match.
I pitched my idea to the food and beverage manager at CordeValle. She was working on bringing high quality wine tasting to the club. It was a perfect time to introduce my idea. The idea evolved and soon she gave me a few wineries to choose from. I chose Buoncristiani .
It was a beautiful day and day turned into night. Decorated with wonderful lights and a spectacular backdrop of Lion’s Gate Valley, the show was off to a great start. Nate Buoncristiani, was a lovely man and we worked so well together, he pouring beautiful wine and my art encircling the Oak Terrace, caught the attention of the private members of CordeValle. It turned out to be a sensational event. The stars were out, the air was warm, the people stayed and enjoyed the moment.
I have to say that it was a wonderful idea that came to fruition. It turned out to be their best wine tasting event ever, lasting well through the night. It was a success for CordeValle and also for me; nothing like a win-win situation.
