This stunning work of art, Napa Valley Flowers, is produced, in accordance with the artist’s customary technique, using only the labels taken from bottles of fine wine. Napa Valley is considered to be one of the top wine regions in the United States and one of only nine great wine capitals on earth. Its history is dating back to the nineteenth century.
The combination of Mediterranean climate, geography and geology of the valley are conducive to growing quality wine grapes. John Patchett established the Napa Valley's first commercial vineyard in 1858. In 1861 Charles Krug established Napa Valley's first commercial winery in St. Helena.
In 1976, the region got a boost from the Paris Wine Tasting of 1976, which featured a Napa Valley Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon which beat several famous French labels in a blind tasting format. The results of this tasting cemented the region's reputation of its ability to produce world-class wines. Today, Napa Valley features more than 450 wineries that grow many grape varieties. Some include Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Zinfandel, and other popular varieties.
The print is hand numbered and accompanied by a certificate signed by the Master Printer and bearing a matching number to the print.
