The beauty of wine is not only the pleasure of sharing a glass with friends and family but is also sharing the total wine country experience. The beauty of the vineyard is not only the wine produced from it but the history and culture that thrives throughout the wine country. For most of us, we only experience the fine wines and fleeting visits to a small part of the area.
Guglielmo Bertetta and Steve Ledson are cousins and share a keen interest in growing wine grapes and making fine wine. They are often together in the vineyards during the growing and harvest seasons. Steve concentrates on the winemaker’s interests while Guglielmo absorbs the unique artistic vistas offered by the vineyard from dawn to sunset.
We are fortunate that Steve’s and Guglielmo’s relationship transcends the time honored skills of winemaking and landscape painting. Through this blending of skills we are able to fully enjoy the beauty of the wine country and of fine wines.
We are pleased to present the beginning of the Ledson series of paintings by Guglielmo and encourage you to enjoy the beauty of the vineyard and the wines born there.
