Label Story: Farella Vineyard

The Name: Farella Vineyard is the vineyard in the Coombsville AVA from which we source this single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. It is owned by Tom and Frank Farella.

The Label: We knew how we wanted to depict Farella right away, and it was the only concept that survived from inception to final label. Farella Vineyard features layers of volcanic and red rock and ashy deposits from ancient landslides, geologic episodes that literally turned this vineyard on its head. What better way to illustrate this phenomenon than with an upside down engraving of the vineyard? A scratchboard illustrator from Ohio worked off a photo of the vineyard to render this detailed engraving of Farella on its head. The original engraving is 10” x 10”.
