Wine, Wild Horses & Wildflowers
Next Saturday (May 3) Return to Freedom, a non-profit wild horse preservation organization will host Wild Horses and Wildflowers 2014, an annual event in Lompoc, CA featuring family festivities and a Native American blessing and ceremonial release of the herds into their spring pastures.
To support the effort, Morse Wines (Fiddletown, CA) will be releasing their new Horseplay wine label – a blend of 2011 Sierra Foothills estate grown Mourvedre, Barbera, and Montepulciano – at the benefit. Guests will be the first to taste this exquisite new vintage, and can bid on Donna Bernstein’s original painting “Into The Light”, which inspired the label. Return to Freedom will get 15% of all bottles sold!
Donna Bernstein is a contemporary equine artist, based in McCall, ID and Scottsdale, AZ. Her paintings and sculpture can be seen in galleries and collections around the world. “I have learned it is not horses that I paint,” she says; “I paint how they make me feel. Into the Light expresses the magnificent energy of our American Mustang, and I am honored to join with Morse Wines in supporting Return to Freedom on their behalf.”
