A father and son shadow adorn each bottle of “Me and My Shadow”. In this drop, creative director Dave Phinney shot portraits of our team- and reflects on what the lessons we can learn from the next generation.
The winemakers for this release are the women who were brave enough to marry the fathers on the labels of Me and My Shadow, and who gave birth to the sons that appear alongside them. Kim Phinney, Melissa Leonardini, and Estelle Lane are those intrepid souls!
