Young Artists See Their Artwork on Wine Labels

We rarely get to see the work of young artists. There is so much talent out there. But, thanks to Hyatt Hotels and the Michael Mondavi Family, young artists are getting the chance at having their artwork displayed on a wine bottle with Canvas Wines.

The Michael Mondavi Family created Canvas Wines for Hyatt Hotels. Art students around the country are invited each year to submit their artistic interpretation of the varietal characteristics of the Canvas Wines: Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Grigio. All entrants are enrolled in an accredited art program. The winner not only gets a $5000 scholarship but they get their artwork featured as a label on a special bottling of Canvas Wines.
