Northern Cross Vineyard
Just want to give a shout-out to a few of the retail spaces that are now selling my Petal People cards, as well as other bits of my artwork.
The first place is Northern Cross Vineyard (located at 1103 Beadle Hill Road, Valley Falls, NY), a cool little upstate vineyard. Vintner Kathleen Weber is a funky chick — funny, interesting and extremely artistic. She is an artist always creating, from wine-making to her hand-painted floorcloths to her lovely silk scarves and Christmas ornaments made from pine cones. She is venturing out into using vintage license plates as a new artistic medium and I can't wait to see what she comes up with.
But I digress. More about the vineyard:
"At Northern Cross Vineyard, we keep winemaking uncomplicated and authentic. We grow cold-hardy grapes in our vineyard and make them into wine that is both new and delicious. We are so confident of the integrity of these grapes, that we named our wines for the predominant grape used in making them. Our red wine grapes are Marquette, Frontenac, St. Croix, and our whites are Lacrosse, La Crescent and Prairie Star. You may not have heard these names before, but we are sure that our wines will offer you a fresh tasting adventure. Our tasting room is a warm space where you can choose your experience – taste, tour, picnic, enjoy the free Wi-Fi or simply hit the pause button. We offer a relaxed, seated tasting experience, so please take your time!"
The tasting room has also been turned into a place where they sell local artwork to make the experience more attractive and fun. I love how my work looks in the space. Thank you Kathleen!
