Stephanie is excited to announce the use of her artwork on the new bin616 line of wines, available exclusively at the Amway Hotel Collection, including JW Marriott, Amway Grand Plaza and Courtyard by Marriott hotels! Her colorful pieces — two figurative, in honor of us, the wine drinkers; two centered on the land, a nod to the farmers, the winemakers and the fruit itself — will appear on bottles of bin616 Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir.
The Goddess of Cabernet: It’s about celebration, femininity and moments to remember.
“It all started in Florence, several years back. I was in the Uffizi, standing in front of Bacchus, the Roman god of wine, as painted by the great master, Caravaggio. Mesmerized as I often become by the great works of art from our past, I began to wonder: What would a goddess of wine look like, and how would I interpret her? Out of my curiosity, a series was born, depicting the female figure in celebration with wine. I culled many of my references from Greek sculpture and mythology, but even more stemmed from the amazing women in my life. Confident and strong, inspiring and fun-loving, ready to celebrate life’s victories and mourn its sorrows by your side. It is also inspired by you, the wine drinkers, the ones who take mythology and history and turn it into the here and now today.
This piece is about Cabernet: The deep, red, full-bodied nectar that’s a personal favorite of mine. It’s impossible to resist smiling as its bold flavors wash over you. May this goddess be your guide as you gather with friends and family — celebrating, catching up, sharing life’s struggles and reveling in its triumphs. Wherever you are is exactly where you need to be. Cheers to you in this moment!”
bin616 artwork will appear at the JW Marriott during ArtPrize, Sept. 18-Oct. 6. For more information, click here.
