Hyatt's House Wine Gets Student-Designed Labels
If you order Hyatt's house wine brand, Canvas, starting next month, you'll get a lovely surprise, the beautiful labels shown above. Hyatt Hotels & Resorts and Folio Fine Wine Partners announced the winners of the 2010 Canvas Artist Series Contest, which gave accredited art students the chance to create a signature wine label for Canvas, a wine brand created by Folio Fine Wine Partners exclusively for Hyatt. The limited edition Canvas wine bottles will be available at all participating Hyatt properties throughout the U.S. starting in February 2011 and feature striking artworks chosen from a wide field of entries. The Cabernet Sauvignon label was created by Jesse Couturier-Herndon of Armstrong Atlantic State University; the Merlot was designed by Anna Membrino of Southern Methodist University and the Chardonnay was done by Claire Ramirez of Trinity University. Each student also received a $5,000 scholarship from Hyatt.
