The artist : I am a mosaic artist from Austin, Texas. I am passionate about creating beauty through the art of mosaics. I create fine art, installations, commissions, garden art, and large-scale designs.
The sponsor : The Picechs are proud to have been, since 1920, a grape-growing family on the slopes of Pradis, near Cormòns. In 1963, hard work and courage earned the family ownership of the vineyards they had been farming for some time. In 1989, Roberto took over the estate from his father Egidio, who was known as “il Ribel”, and his mother Jelka, turning it into the much-envied operation it is today. Low-yielding vineyards looked after like gardens and grape maceration in the cellar are the secrets that make our wines so distinctively individual, impervious to passing fads and the latest technology. Picech wines reflect the history of this fantastic territory, a tradition that Roberto continues with assistance from his wife Alessia and their children, Athena and Ruben.
