I am in awe of all your beautiful and ingenious entries for the Mutt Lynch - Dog Art Today Wine Label Contest. Thank you everyone for participating. The contest has blown past my wildest expectations.
Description of the wine that will have the winning label: a Dry Creek Valley Meritage, which is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot that is aged in 100% French oak for 18 months. Only 500 bottles of this rare and exclusive wine will be produced.
Click here to review all 51 wine labels and then cast your vote for your favorite. The top 10 artists with the most votes will go to the next round. Then, the winner will be selected from the finalists by judges Brenda Lynch – winemaker/co-owner of Mutt Lynch Winery, Rae Huestis - wine label designer, and Moira McLaughlin (me) – founder of Dog Art Today.
Voting runs until midnight PST, Friday, June 19, 2009.
The wine with the winning label will debut at The Dog Days of Summer event at Mutt Lynch Winery August 8, 2009. Proceeds benefit the Healdsburg Animal Shelter. Please come and bring your dogs.
