As fall embraces the natural world, the Blue Moon Winery in Courtenay (4905 Darcy Rd.) will be pairing its palate pleasers with Campbell River visual artist, Sonia Hauser.
This is a beautiful time of year to sample marvellous wines and ciders amid paintings that glory in nature.
The winery uses only organic fruits which are cultivated on Vancouver Island. Wine and cider making on the farm is a process which includes ecology, chemistry, old world wisdom, and adventurous experimentation.
Hauser’s art is displayed in a cozy and alluring setting amid stools arranged around old-fashioned kegs. Most of the works are oil, and play between the realms of realism and abstract art.
On Sunday, Oct. 9 from 1-4 p.m. a reception will be hosted at the winery with the artist in attendance.
The winery is open Saturdays and Sundays in October from noon to 5 p.m.
