If you were one of the many who attended the first Perfect Pairing at the Blue Moon Estate Winery, you will recall a fabulous afternoon spent viewing art and tasting wine.

Again this year, the winery has paired with local artist, Juanita Olson, to offer you a wonderful Sunday outing. You are invited to enjoy samplings of the Blue Moon Estate Winery’s award-winning wines as you view Juanita’s recent works, or stroll the winery’s beautiful grounds.

Juanita’s medium of choice has been watercolours for years. Recently, since having painted in the company of many talented Comox Valley artists, she has been inspired to venture into acrylics as well — with pleasing results. Juanita’s work will hang in the winery’s gallery for the entire month of July.

Marla Limousin and George Ehrler (of Blue Moon Estate Winery and Nature’s Way Farm) invite all comers to meet the artist and enjoy a complimentary tasting of their wines.

“Art and Wine are a perfect pairing, both are a creative process in different mediums. There are some wonderful artists in the gallery and we love providing our space to promote their work. Juanita has such beauty in her watercolours,” explains Marla.

This Sunday, Blue Moon presents a pairing of art and wine between 1 and 4 p.m. at 4905 Darcy Rd. in Courtenay.
