Have you been to Brooklyn Oenology’s wine bar? You should, its got a nice vibe and it’s totally affordable. They get to sell wine on the cheap since they are actually a tasting room, and can sell you a bottle at retail that you then get to drink on the spot. To further distinguish themselves in the crowded Brooklyn wine market, they have art as their wine labels-and now want your pretty little project to grace their bottles.
From the release:
Since 2005, Brooklyn Oenology, a unique urban winery using local grapes and production, has been showcasing and supporting Brooklyn-based artists by featuring local art on their eclectic wine labels. Each vintage, blend, and varietal highlights a new work selected by winemaker Alie Shaper from some of the borough’s brightest creative talents.
In celebration of the new year, the opening of BOE’s new Tasting Room in Williamsburg, and the upcoming spring debut of some exciting new wines, Brooklyn Oenology is thrilled to announce an open search for the artist to be featured on our next release, the 2010 Sauvignon Blanc- a refreshing varietal sure to be a summer hit!
I’m not so much of a white wine type of artist myself but, who knows? More details on how to get your art on a wine bottle are at NYFA.
