Our label
Janet & Harold Wood with Artist Susan Barry holding the watercolor painting “Muir’s Dream”. With Half Dome in the background, this painting was the backdrop for the beginning of our wine labels.

This original watercolor portrait of John Muir by Susan Barry was created in August of 2000, for the John Muir Dinner Dance and Auction to help raise funds for the John Muir National Historical Site in Martinez, California. It was purchased at the auction by Harold Wood of Visalia, California, September 9, 2000.

A giclee print of this painting resides at the Le Conte Memorial Lodge, a national historic landmark in Yosemite Valley.

Pinot 2003 Muirs Legacy

The first label format was used for our 2000 & 2001 Chardonnay. In 2002, we changed the label as well as altering our logo slightly. This new variation became the signature design of our Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon wine labels.

Merlot
Primitivo 2005
We wanted a bold label statement for our special red wine, Muir’s Legacy, an estate blend of classic Bordeaux varieties, to honor John Muir’s legacy. In 2007, we changed our other labels dramatically by incorporating old family and archived photos of John Muir's life and changing the trade name to Muir’s Legacy. Each varietal now has it’s own distinctive photo depicting John Muir’s love of nature and family.
