Zoltun has been a proud sponsor of the Make-A-Wish Grapevine wine-tasting event for the past five years. I always look forward to creating the invitations for this festive gathering.

Artwork by Rich Bach fills Bossa Nova with intense energy.

This year, Stephanie Pugliese, Manager of Special Events at Make-A-Wish, wanted the invite to convey all the vibrant, frenetic energy of a Latin salsa dance. After exploring a range of images, we chose a vivid swirl of colors, reminiscent of two twirling dancers in motion.

Grapevine’s lively and energetic invitation set the mood for the party to come.

The frenzied swirls of the invitation were also a nod to Bossa Nova’s art-filled space. The paintings and sculptures by Pittsburgh artist Rich Bach buzz with fiery energy. I was so glad to have been invited and though I’m not yet a sommelier, I’ve certainly added a few new bottles to my list!

The Grapevine in full swing! The crowd at Bossa Nova spilled out onto the sidewalk.

Rows of wine glasses wait to be filled.

I took a break from sipping to pose near
a giant cluster of grape balloons that guided guests into the party.

I am so honored to have the opportunity to work with Stephanie and the Make-A-Wish Foundation and to be a part of the tremendous work that they do to enrich the lives
of children.
