From "grape to glass" it starts with initiative, creativity, and love.
Why Pianetta Love?
Let's give them something to talk about.
The inspiration for the artwork was not just to give people something to view, but to connect the art with the inspiration behind the wines at Pianetta. Brandon saw the passion behind the “grape to glass” approach of Pianetta wines.
Great wine really starts in the vineyard and each vineyard produces something unique. In order to incorporate the same feel with his installation, everything has been created out of upcycling grapevines, wine barrels and corks. He has created a conversation piece for customers, wine club members, art enthusiasts and passersby to enjoy.
The installation is large enough to be seen through the windows at the front of the tasting room, but the real treat is an up-close viewing of all the pieces of the sculpture, titled “Pianetta Love”
