It was the early 1980s, the scene, a dinner party in Heerbrugg, Switzerland, hosted by Alexander Schmidheiny -- who two years before had bought Napa Valley's Cuvaison winery. Proudly opening a bottle for an American guest, Pop artist Andy Warhol, Schmidheiny asked: "What do you think?" Warhol replied, "What a lousy label!" Schmidheiny's wife and partner, Christina, recalled that Warhol accepted a challenge to design something better. But somehow the resulting 50+ labels were mostly forgotten in a drawer until now. The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and Cuvaison celebrate this historic collaboration with this limited edition Andy Warhol by Cuvaison Collection. We are proud to offer you this first release in a series of three. The collector's box for Series One includes a bottle of Cuvaison's top Estate Chardonnay from Carneros and the best red Bordeaux blend from Brandlin Vineyard. Both wines are from the 2014 vintage and made exclusively for this collection.
"While the Foundation has had the privilege of working with many brands including Dior, Dom Perignon, Perrier and Absolut, among others, Andy Warhol x Cuvaison is uniquely authentic because Warhol himself created the artworks used for the project with the intention that they be considered as labels for Cuvaison. The Foundation is delighted to work with Cuvaison to finish what Andy started." - Michael Hermann, Licensing Director Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc.
