Crys­tal Clear

Hong Kong Tatler - - Life | Wine -

Tus­cany’s fa­mous Tenuta dell’or­nel­laia has re­leased the lat­est edi­tion of its an­nual Ven­dem­mia d’artista se­ries, a mar­riage be­tween its most re­cent wine on the mar­ket and the work of a world-fa­mous artist. This year, a limited edi­tion of the 2012 Or­nel­laia car­ries a crys­tal seal­ing mech­a­nism by John Arm­leder. The Swiss artist cre­ated in­di­vid­ual crys­tal “la­bels” for var­i­ous bot­tles of the vin­tage, in­clud­ing 100 dou­ble mag­nums, 10 im­pe­ri­als and a salmanazar. Some of the bot­tles will be sold through a Sotheby’s auc­tion in April to raise funds for the popular art mu­seum run by Fondation Beyeler in Riehen, near Basel, Switzer­land.
