New Semi-permanent exhibit just installed at the Tasting Room -- Over 20 glass discs hang suspended from the ceiling in an array of colors and shapes and sizes. Some seem to glow from the inside, as a pulse moves the light around the circumference of some of them, while others are illuminated from within. This whimsical display of glass evokes both the cosmos as well as underwater coral and creatures. It's hard not to want to lay on your back underneath them, but then, how would one drink one's wine? Installed in the tasting room/ wine bar, there is no reason to go anywhere as long as your glass is full. But don't pass up the opportunity to taste a flight-- or compare vintages of your favorite varietal. Meet our First Friday artist Jack Mento. His lively and colorful abstract paintings are the perfect pairing. Explore the explosion of color and line.
