Cairdean is a winery in St. Helena, CA right on Hwy 29 in Napa Valley. My claim to fame is that I was the first customer to taste in their new tasting room. Owner Edwin Williams was so gracious to show us around and tell us the story of how he and his wife, winemaker Stacia, have made their dream a reality. The design on their foil is a Celtic knot that Edwin originally created on a Valentines card he made for his wife. The design is four hearts coming together representing friendship (also the meaning of the Scottish Gaelic word Caridean).
We returned a few months later to see progress made on the property
We visited once again a few months later to see Edwin and Stacia and all the new development on the property. We stayed to have dinner with them at the gastropub on property, The Farmer and the Fox. What a treat!
I was invited to Cairdean Estate’s Arts in April 2015 event along with several other talented artists. I got to display my Vino Mosaics in the tasting room and do a live demonstration so visitors could see the detail that goes into each piece.
