The brand - Liberty Cellars - is an expression of my lifelong interest in American History. I create new labels each year to celebrate famous and lesser-known individuals, events, and icons of the Revolutionary War (the fun is in the research! reading biographies, drawing the illustrations, visiting historical sites).
There is a method to the labels :-)
|Cabernet Sauvignon||Our flagship varietal venerates the people of action, the Generals and leaders in battle. Recurring: G.W. every five years.|
|Declaration blend||Honors the intellectuals who propelled the Revolution through their writings and voices. Recurring: Franklin, Jefferson, Samuel Adams every five years; Paine, Henry every ten.|
|Zinfandel||The owner’s pet project - the Zinyard - celebrates the major American battlefield victories. The western block of the Zinyard is planted in the shape of the Betsy Ross flag.|
|Other single varietal reds||Toasts the less-heralded, the unsung, the engrossing new discoveries found when exploring history.|
|Sauvignon Blanc||Features the icons of Liberty and America. e.g. The Liberty Bell|
|Late Harvest||Highlights the Bill of Rights - the culmination of the Revolution - akin to a bold, sweet final course to be savored!|
We welcome suggestions for label figures, especially lesser-known and under-appreciated persons, groups, and events from the American Revolution - please share with us!
