Once again, we have partnered with Moira McLaughlin at Dog Art Today to stage our 2nd annual Dog Art Wine Label Contest. Dog Art Today runs the dog art contest and online voting and Mutt Lynch will use the winning dog art submission on a limited release wine from our Sonoma County winery. We will unveil the winning artwork and new wine at our Dog Days of Summer Open House on August 14.
Moira and Brenda were both ecstatic about last year’s results and eager to repeat the contest and limited release wine. In 2009, Dog Art Today received over 50 dog art submissions from across the country and abroad. The winning submission (LeeRoy Out Loud! by Kellie Oliphant-Burns) produced an outstanding label for Mutt Lynch’s 2007 Meritage red wine. LeeRoy himself (pictured on the left) is very proud of his wine!!
In the spirit of “all things dog”, Brenda Lynch has decided that this year’s red wine will be a “Muttitage” blend of her finest barrels of wine. Some of the world’s finest red wines are blends of several grape varietals. Producing a “Muttitage” blend allows Brenda to create a truly unique Sonoma County red wine for the new label. Once again, only 500 bottles of wine will be produced; it will retail for $25 per bottle and will be available for sale at the winery and on our webpage.
Dog Art Today will be accepting submissions from March 15 to May 15 and conduct online voting from May 19 to 25. Moira and Brenda will then join forces with Mutt Lynch Winery’s label designer Rae Huestis to judge the top 10 finalists to select the winner for this year’s wine label. The winning artist will be announced on May 27. The winning artist will receive the first case of wine produced, signed by winemaker Brenda Lynch, and the winner's art will be profiled on Dog Art Today.
