The art of wine

In Cornwall, there’s always been a natural link between the artist and the landscape.

This connection to land and sea is something John Coulson, winemaker at Polgoon Vineyard, also feels strongly about and has inspired him to approach Newlyn School of Art to commission the tutors to create artwork for the labels of Polgoon’s latest limited edition, Bacchus white wine. Anthony Garratt’s ‘Plucked Mine’ was chosen for this year’s commission and is a moody depiction painted with soil from Botallack mine itself.

The Art Bacchus wine has fresh, crisp, citrusy aromas and each bottle is signed by the artist and numbered from 1 to 1500. Plus, with every bottle sold, a donation will be made to help support the work that Newlyn Art School does to teach, mentor and support artists from around the country.
