This avid and knowledgeable Edmonton-based collector has been cellaring high quality wines for several decades. The wines were typically purchased in multiple quantities (3, 6, 12 bottles) from trusted local fine wine retail shops but over time were also sourced from the SAQ, LCBO, during US travel, or direct from US wineries. To round out the collection and ‘fill holes’, highly collectable bottles of interest were occasionally purchased at auction in Canada where provenance was assured. The wines are from regions around the world and were stored after purchase in monitored temperature (54-57 °C) and humidity-controlled wine fridges. The size of the collection has grown to a point where, although not initially purchased for resale, the time has come to ‘thin’ out multiple bottle quantities for others to enjoy.

Producer notes- Every year since the release of Ornellaia 2006 a contemporary artist has designed a site-specific work of art for the estate and a set of limited-edition labels, inspired by a word chosen by the Estate Director to describe the character of the new vintage. The Vendemmia d’Artista project involves the limited-edition production of 111 large-format bottles (100 Double Magnums, 10 Imperials and 1 Salmanazar), which are numbered and signed personally by the artist. Since 2012, every case of Ornellaia has included one bottle featuring a label created by the artist. Collectors around the world compete for these bottles, most of which are sold during an annual charity auction to support the world of art. Since 2019, the profits made from the Vendemmia d’Artista project are donated to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation’s Mind’s Eye program, which helps blind or low-vision people experiment art by using all other senses. Donations from the Ornellaia Vendemmia d’Artista project have allowed the Mind's Eye program to expand through virtual programs. Digitalization has enabled Mind's Eye to reach a vast audience from many countries around the world through the “Verbal Descriptions” that recreate the visual experience of the artwork.
