Lancaster maker of California-produced wines debuts artwork to benefit Ukraine

​The Art of Wine

Friday, December 2, from 6 to 9 p.m.

(LANCASTER)—Celebrating its 11th anniversary as Pennsylvania’s only California-produced wine tasting store, Thorn Hill Vineyards will unveil six original oil paintings of its wine collections by artist Vitaly Borisenko at a reception on Friday, December 2 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Thorn Hill Tasting Room, 1945 Fruitville Pike. Giclee prints of the paintings will be available for ordering, framed and unframed, signed by the artist and ready for the holidays.

        

Owner and winemaker Amy Thorn discovered the USSR-born artist who has resided in Lancaster County since 2014 and commissioned the paintings of her wines. “Vitaly has a remarkable talent for creating elegant images in skillfully painted still life,” said Thorn. “There is almost a photorealism in his work.” In recognition of the 33-year-old Borisenko’s eastern European heritage, 15% of each giclee purchased at the event will be donated to Project HOPE Crisis in Ukraine fund. The giclees measure the same as the original oils on linen, 16” x 20”, 20” x 16” and 18” x 24”.

Along with her husband Jack, both of Lancaster, Thorn has been growing and producing boutique artisan wines for 13 years from her vineyards in Napa Valley, Sonoma and Lake County.  Seventeen varietals of Thorn Hill Wines and an olive oil produced from their Lake County vineyard’s olive trees are available for purchase exclusively at the Thorn’s Tasting Room and through the family-owned business’s website.

Guests planning to attend the December 2nd Art of Wine event are requested to RSVP at 717-517-7839 or email thlanc@comcast.net by November 30. The reception includes complimentary hors d’oeuvres and wines available for purchase by the glass or bottle. Guests are asked to festively dress in black and red.

Tasting Room location: 1945 Fruitville Pike, Lancaster, PA
