UNSEEN ANDY WARHOL LABELS RELEASED BY NAPA WINERY

1.-Andy-Warhol-Full-Set-1-640x484

Napa Valley winery Cuvaison has launched a new series of wines with ‘forgotten’ labels designed by Andy Warhol, who once said the original labels were “lousy”. The collaboration apparently began in early 1980s after Warhol was served a bottle of the Napa Valley Cuvaison wine at a dinner party in Switzerland hosted by his friend and the winery’s owner, Alexander Schmidheiny. When Schmidheiny asked what Warhol thought of the wine, Warhol replied, “What a lousy label,” and suggested a redesign. Commissioned by Cuvaison, Warhol took polaroids of grapes in a variety of patterns to create over 50 unique silkscreen prints for Cuvaison labels. The designs, however, were then forgotten about and left in a drawer until now. Thirty-five years on, Cuvaison, in association with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, has released the first limited-edition set of the ‘Andy Warhol by Cuvaison Collection’. The ‘Series One’ range is now available in Hong Kong and consists of...

Bitcoin in a Bottle – The Investment Wines

Bitcoin_Image1-10006403

We look at which wines have provided the best returns over the past five years and find some surprises. By Don Kavanagh | Posted Saturday, 09-Dec-2017 It's a hoary old story, so often repeated that it has almost become an urban myth – if you had invested $100 in Bitcoin in 2011, you'd be a millionaire today. Of course, there would have been some fairly hair-raising ups and downs along the way, but if you had invested your $100 in the cryptocurrency you could have realised your investment on November 29 at a tidy $3,773,758.93. Of all the investment options, Bitcoin is the only one that has seriously challenged wine for returns in the past five years or so. Wine had better returns than real estate, gold and stocks last year and the top end appreciates at dizzying speed. Take a look at the big names of Burgundy – DRC, Leroy, Jayer and the rest...
