Chuck Close’s Grapes (Not Sour)

imageBedell Cellars, owned by Co-CEO of New Line Cinema, Michael Lynne, recently released a new red wine. Called Musée, it’s sort of a Merlot, kind of a Cabernet, and a bit Petit Verdot. It’s this unexpected combination that makes the potable so unique—that, and the fact that all the grapes were harvested from the winery’s vineyards on Long Island. Bedell Cellars is known for collaborating with contemporary artists to design their artful labels—Eric Fischl, Barbara Kruger, and Ross Bleckner have all contributed. Musée’s label was designed by Chuck Close and features a bunch of grapes in Close’s photorealist style.
