„Help, I’ll be 70“ – Werner Knipser from the Palatinate Region Was Forced to Celebrate

GERMANY (Laumersheim) – The invitation almost sounded like a cry for help. “I’ll be 70 – yet, I’m forced to celebrate. Come along and help me!” Werner Knipser, vintner in Laumersheim, Palatinate, and one of the big stars within Germany’s wine scene, had completed his seventh decade. Even though he actually refused to be the center of attention on his birthday – his being able to welcome long-term companions among his customers and above all among from viticulture was like a psychological foot-bath to him. Among the persons who followed the invitation were Joachim Heger from Baden, Helmut Dönnhoff from the Nahe region, Wilhelm Haag and Uli Stein from the Moselle region, and Daniel Gantenbein from Switzerland.

„The Essence“ – An Interpretation of 2014 Ornellaia by Ernesto Neto

ITALY (Bolgheri) – Ornellaia, producer of premium wines located in Bolgheri, Tuscany, has for long been famous for his artful labels, which every year are designed by a renowned creative person, committed from the elitist circle of contemporary art. Whoever believes the expressive designs presented by now cannot be bested any more, should better listen to reason. This year, the Bolgheri wine estate asked Ernesto Neto, an artist from Brazil, to design the labels for the 2014 Ornellaia “L’Essenza” as part of the Vendemmia d’Artista project. When he interpreted 2014 ‘L’Essenza’, Ernesto Neto made reference to his current artistic involvement: the investigation of shamanism as science, the phenomena of nature, and indigenous art handicraft. In 2014, Neto, together with other members of the Juni Kuin tribe, explored the artistic aspect of rituals and shamanic traditions – this is what his current works are inspired by.
