Founded in 1932 by Giuseppe Ghezzi, Pasquale Cappozzi and former British Columbia Premier W.A.C. Bennett, Calona Vineyards is British Columbia's original winery. As a pioneer in the Canadian wine industry, Calona Vineyards now represents the best of B.C. winemaking, uniting old-world techniques with visionary innovations. The Calona Vineyards Artist Series is an annual call to artists to identify the art that will appear on the labels of the new vintages. Calona Vineyards Artist Series celebrates artists who call B.C. home, and each painting is carefully selected for the special way it evokes the spirit of British Columbia.
