WelcomeOur labels feature artwork commissioned from among the world’s most notable contemporary artists. The collection, of 200+ pieces and growing, is on permanent display in our tasting room gallery.
The artists – from young talents exploding onto the scene to recognized masters – are sought out by program curator Bob Nugent, a recognized fine artist with strong ties to many in the art community. Artists are chosen for the quality and diversity of their work and for their enthusiasm for this unique program.
The artist program, as Nugent and Joe Benziger designed it, allows the individual artists almost total creative freedom. The only requirement of the artist is that they include – somewhere in their image – an interpretation of the Parthenon symbol, which serves as the winery’s signature. As Nugent states, “We are able to attract top artists to participate because the winery has had the vision not to limit the artist’s creative expression.”
