How Wine Became Modern

5 Dec

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) is currently exhibiting a collection of work that explores the development of wine since 1976, when Chateau Montelena won the blind tasting in Paris and put Napa on the map as a top wine producing region.

Our favorite installation was the “Label Wall,” a collection of 200 wine bottles arranged by label personality. In a way, the wall is a real-life representation of Corkbin. In fact, we’ve actually seen a few of the wines from Label Wall in Corkbin.

Other interesting installations include the Terroir room that contain soils from 17 vineyards around the world, “smell wall”, and unique winery architectures. The exhibit runs until April 17, 2011.
