We celebrate the dreamers.
The crazy, the unique, and the bold.
And the ones that never quite fit in.
And everyone in between.
When we set out to create a Pride-themed wine, we came across the talented artist + art director Hizze Fletcher-King and her art piece Closet Door #1, a mixed media piece grounded in queer-core culture that celebrates Pride and the LGBTQ+ community.
Love & Pride is our third Tank Cares label, and we are thrilled to be giving back to LGBTQ Connection, a foundation established in Napa and Sonoma counties in 2011. Napa and Sonoma are only an hour north of San Francisco, but they are world's apart in terms of visibility and community for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning people in those communities. LGBTQ Connection is an initiative fueled by youth and other emerging leadership that fosters a healthier, more vibrantly diverse and inclusive community.
For the Love & Pride project, Hizze contributed her piece, Closet Door #1, an actual closet door covered with graffiti and queer symbolism. Having made several doors in her career, this one is special, this is her door, created to express her own journey. And she doesn't play it safe. Adorned with profane, powerful words long considered slurs, Hizze's goal is to establish ownership. "These are our words now. These words give the queer community strength." With our wine, we are proud to support this expression and challenge others to think and empathize with its message.
This zesty blend of Albariño, Marsanne, Malvasia Bianca, Gewürztraminer, and Tocai Friulano is a celebration in and of itself. It’s tart, it’s crisp, and everything you want in a summertime sipper. So pop a bottle, live large, shine bright, and always remember, you’ll never dream alone.
40% Albariño, 29% Marsanne, 14% Malvasia Bianca, 12 % Gewürztraminer, 5% Tocai Friulano
