Lost Acres Vineyard Wine Label Design

Lost Acres Vineyard of North Granby, CT recently held a contest to design the labels for their fall 2011 wines. This was a fun design opportunity for me because not only do I love seeing interesting wine labels but I grew up in Granby, CT. For my entry, I illustrated the vineyard scene, framed by grape vines, with an antique-style map of the area as the background. My husband came up with the name: Shire-az. Get it? The Shire . . . Shiraz? Yes, I love "Lord of the Rings." I'll find out in October if my design is one of the winners!
