And the winner is … Paul LaPorte! At last week’s gathering at Bowers Harbor Vineyards for the annual Mission Point Lighthouse Wine Label competition, Paul’s artwork landed the most votes (i.e. dollars), which means his artwork will appear on the label of the upcoming “Lighthouse Pinot Grigio” to be issued this spring by Bowers Harbor Vineyards.
Here’s the label mockup of the winning art. Thanks to Rod Robinson for sending it along (check out his “Up North” blog, Wine By the Fireside).
Along with the opportunity to vote, attendees were also treated to wine tastings and hors d’oeuvres. , and an opportunity to vote for the artwork of your choice.
This annual fundraising event for the Mission Point Lighthouse Friends, with funds used for improvements to Mission Point Lighthouse‘s building and educational displays. Here are a few more photos of the event.
