Polgoon, The Art Bacchus 2017
- Bottle Size
- Wine Type
The iconic Cornish landscape has always been a source of inspiration to artists. This connection to the landscape is something John Coulson, winemaker at Polgoon, also feels strongly about and inspired him to approach Newlyn School of Art to commission the tutors to create artwork for the labels of Polgoon’s limited edition, bacchus white wine. Anthony Garratt’s ‘Plucked Mine’ was chosen for this year’s commission. The painting of a tin mine in Botallack at the heart of Poldark country and just a few miles from the vineyard, has been created using soil from the mine itself.
The Art Bacchus has fresh, crisp, citrus aromas with gooseberry and elderflower prominent on the palate. Each bottle from the limited edition of 1,500 is signed by the artist and winemaker and individually numbered from 1 to 1,500. With every bottle sold, a donation will be made to help support the work Newlyn School of Art does to teach, mentor and support artists from around the country.
This is an annual commission; with every new vintage a new label will be commissioned from one of Newlyn’s tutors to build a collection of art labels from the best artists working in the county.
