A winner has been chosen! For the annual Mission Point Lighthouse Wine Label contest, that is. Ruth Kitchen took home the prize of $250 for her winning wine label design and will be featured on the Bowers Harbor Lighthouse Pinot Grigio to be released this spring.

The contest, a collaborative effort between Bowers Harbor Vineyards and the Mission Point Lighthouse Friends group, was narrowed to three finalists, including Kitchen, Janet Oliver and Jim Smania. At a special event at Bowers Harbor Vineyards on Friday, participants voted for their favorite design with dollars.

This annual event also serves as a fundraiser that directly benefits Mission Point Lighthouse, with the funds used for improvements to the building and educational displays.

The fun gathering, which took place in Bowers Harbor Vineyard’s heated outdoor tent, included two wine tastings and a variety of tasty hors d’oeuvres.

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever.
