The City of Ridgefield announced the winners of the Roundabout Wine labels on Jan. 26. Artist Maureen O’Reilly’s label will adorn the 2022 Ridgefield Roundabout Red, and JoyLynn Woodard’s art will grace the 2023 Ridgefield Roundabout Rosé, according to a news release by the city.
In 2015, Marechal Foch grapes were planted in the roundabouts leading into Ridgefield. In 2018, the grapes were used to produce the first bottles of Ridgefield Roundabout Red wine.
Gouger Cellars Winery bottled the first batch, and Windy Hills Winery made and bottled the 2021 batch of wine.
14 Acres Winery is in the process of bottling two batches: 2022 Roundabout Red and 2023 Roundabout Rosé, the release stated.
The City intends that each batch of roundabout wine will have a wine label with unique artwork created by a local artist. Original artworks for the newest bottles, 2022 Roundabout Red and 2023 Roundabout Rosé, were selected after a competitive selection process. Nineteen pieces of art were submitted from 13 different artists, the release stated.
