We love supporting local artists and therefore jumped at the chance to incorporate murals at our soon-to-be Marina Tasting Lounge, adjacent to the winery. These two talented local artists – one from the Monterey Peninsula and another from Santa Cruz – transformed our warehouse walls… beautifully!
Marina Tasting Lounge – coming soon! Summer 2019!!
“The mural ‘Mermaid Under Moonlight,’ tried to encapsulate the enjoyment of wine on the peninsula through a playfully glamorous dream. Stylistically, the mural is a slight nod to romantic French advertisements of the 1920’s, while also incorporating contemporary twists and color schemes to vault the image into the present day. The addition of the glowing squid boats on the bay was a must for me, as this event is truly beautiful to observe, and unique to the area. Hoping to capture the imaginations of wine tasters below, the image is hoping to tell them, “you’re in a very special place in the world at this moment, dream a little, and enjoy it!”

“This painting was inspired by the local birds in the Monterey bay and the grape vineyards through Carmel. I wanted to give the piece color and movement using fall and summer colors. I collaborated on the piece with two artists visiting from Portugal. I met Phame and Bella in Brazil four years ago and they hosted me in Rio de Janeiro. They have been working on local mural projects with me in the Bay Area for the last month.”
