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
See the evolution our wine labels, below.
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.
|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.
