Andy Warhol Rocks Illinois River Winery with WineChannelTV

I am not sure if Andy Warhol was a big wine drinker, but if he saw Illinois River Winery’s wine labels I’m sure he’d be a big fan .

I met with Nancy Sabatini, Manager of Social Media for the IL River Winery, at the 3rd Annual Art of Illinois Wine Festival . We had tweeted before the event, so I was eager to meet a fellow twitter friend and try some IL wine!

The IL River Winery was founded in 1988 by Gregg Kane, who’s hopes of spreading artistic quality throughout the winery has proved very successful . One wine I enjoyed very much was their First Blush, which had the Warhol inspired label and claims to have won the “Best Blush in America Award.”  Sabatini discussed how the winery has an Artist in Residence Program which among many things, helps to promote IL art and design some of their wine labels.

Watch WineChannelTV in action to learn more about this program and the wines at IL River Winery!

Cheers,

JustJess

    The Italian lady was very informative. Did she work in NAPA previously?
