It is my pleasure to announce that this March, Talley Vineyards will be hosting the sixth annual Mano Tinta revolving artist label competition. For those of you unfamiliar, Mano Tinta is a charity wine produced through a community effort wherein all the grapes, packaging and labor to make the wine is donated and the artwork for the label is created by the local community through this competition. The vibrant and creative labels from the past few vintages of the Mano Tinta wine have featured a variety of colorful images, all symbolic of the vineyard worker and their craft.
This competition is open to the general public and will be on display for public viewing and voting in the Talley Vineyards tasting room throughout the month of March. We encourage local artists of all ages and levels of experience to submit their artwork to the Talley Vineyards tasting room anytime through the end of March. Submissions must be accompanied by a completed entry form and should be original and meaningful. The winner will be announced within the first week of April and will have their artwork showcased on the 2010 Mano Tinta label, website, t-shirts and posters. Entry forms and specific guidelines can be found listed below or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
The profits raised from the sales of this wine are donated to the Fund for Vineyard and Farm Workers; an endowment created by Brian and Johnine Talley that benefits organizations utilized by the vineyard and farm workers of all San Luis Obispo County.
