What Happens When Art and Wine Collide?

Wine, craftsmanship and contributing frequently obscure.

Every year after harvest, Ornellaia Winemaker Axel Heinz is requested that surface with a solitary word that portrays the vintage. The winery then contracts a craftsman to plan a mark that typifies that portrayal.

Allowed Chateau Mouton Rothschild, a standout amongst the most well known wineries on the planet, has been doing that since 1945. Furthermore, its yearly name has been made by aesthetic greats, for example, Marc Chagall, Keith Harring and Andy Warhol.

Ornellaia has made it a stride advance however by including a magnanimous segment. Its craftsman outlined containers are sold, and the returns are given to back to the workmanship world.

This year, Ornellaia Winemaker Axel Heinz picked “L’Eleganza” (The Elegance) to epitomize the 2013 vintage.

They then procured Japanese craftsman Yutaka Sone to decipher that thought onto the name. “They allowed me to drink 2005, 2007, 2011 and 2013,” he said.

“No craftsman, who took a shot at Vendemmia, has contemplated the wines as hard as Yutaka,” Heinz said. (Can’t point the finger at him. The wines are astonishing.)
