Wine Label Art Competition!
Kathy's artwork (center) was chosen as this year's 2017 winner! Kathy's beautiful watercolor art had the most $ votes at our final judging party. This art will be featured on the 2016 Bowers Harbor Pinot Grigio to be released in May. Money from each bottle sold goes directly to the Mission Point Lighthouse Friends for special restoration projects at the lighthouse and other keeper quarters expenses. Awesome job! We had 23 entries this year and it was tough competition, many fine artistic renderings.
We will announce the 3rd Annual Wine Label Art Competition January 2018. This is a fantastic fundraiser for the Mission Point Lighthouse.
