Label muse LeeRoy poses next to the winning label he insipired last year (LeeRoy Out Loud! by Kellie Oliphant-Burns).
What’s better than dogs and wine? Dogs and wine and art...as demonstrated by the folks at Mutt Lynch Winery in Sonoma, who artfully mix dogs and winemaking—with mutts on the premises, on the labels and in the mission. They strike again with their Second Annual Dog Art Today Dog Art Wine Label Contest, co-sponsored by Bark. Leaving it to you and me to help select from among 77 delightful works of art one destined for label immortality. Sort of American Idol meets Benji.
CLICK HERE to peruse all 77 entries and cast your vote! Voting ends Tuesday, May 25 at noon PST.
From among the 10 top finalists announced on Thursday, May 27, winemaker Brenda Lynch; Moira McLaughlin of Dog Art Today; and Rae Huestis, Mutt Lynch label designer, will select a winner to be featured on the label of a red called “Muttitage.” Only 500 bottles of the exclusive blend will be produced and released at Mutt Lynch’s Dog Days of Summer on August 14—with 10 percent of all sales proceeds going to the San Francisco SPCA.
