The Label:

We chose the Pinot Grigio for Angie because she loved things that were “different”. The peachy colour that the Pinot Grigio has truly makes it so. Horses were very highly revered in Italy so this was quite the compliment. Angie was a strong yet caring mother figure, very hardworking, dedicated, loyal, great endurance, perseverance all combined with a free spirit. Her two children are depicted on the horse’s back. Tara was not ready to let her mother go so she is tenderly yet firmly holding on to her. Michael is reaching to heaven for her. The rock below represents her husband Mike that she referred to affectionately as her “rock” that kept her firmly grounded.
