Kaleidoscope - Wine and Art

Television (Excerpts) – 1987

Winemaker Lionel Collard broke new ground in the 1980s when he began inviting Kiwi artists to decorate his wine labels — breaking the trend of plain, to the point text. Collard started with Billy Apple. Later artists to feature on Collard Brothers bottles included Pat Hanly, Philippa Blair, Gavin Chilcott and Carole Shepheard. They talk about their art in this documentary. Wine writer Keith Stewart praises the art-infused labels for embodying the idea that winemaking is an artform. Wine seller Joe Jakicevich vouches for the commercial benefits of the vibrant, eye-catching labels.

Those people that are very interested in art and wine — and most art lovers tend to be interested in wine — will feel a lot more affinity with the Collards label than they do with Baron Philippe's.
– Wine writer Keith Stewart
