The Donom Estate: Art & Wine

Saturday, I got to take a peak inside an off-the-beaten path winery in Sonoma. I was there to do a tape sync (recording one side of a conversation) with an artist who’s work has been recently installed at The Donom Estate. First, the estate is stunning.

I love how the vineyards are reflected in “Love Me.” It shows a love of the land, nature, light, and of course wine. The vineyards stretch in all directions beneath this shining heart. It’s like it’s a beacon of light and love.

I know it’s a wine bottle and some grapes, but for some reason it makes me think of bubbles. But actually it’s either a Chard or Pinot. Which one is it?

I parked under this tire tree by Douglas White. There were real palms in the parking lot as well.
