About Us

Art Inspired Wines

Our ultra-premium, limited edition cuvées pay homage to old-world winemakers and form a synthesis between the fine art on the label and fine wine in the bottle.

Like an impressionist painter mixing colors on a palette, Artiste winemaker, Bion Rice, artfully canvases a selection of vintages and varietals from exceptional winegrowers and winemakers throughout California.

Bion’s unwavering insistence on quality ensures that lots remain small, with each wine produced under 500 cases. With each blend, Artiste wines capture a sense of old-world style with new-world personality, handcrafting liquid works of art for your palate.

Four times a year, Artiste releases three new wines with unique labels from the brushes of our featured artist. With each new release we invite members and their guests to our art & wine release party at our tasting studio. It is here that you get the first chance to savor our wonderful wine and to view our artist’s beautiful artwork. It’s the perfect ambiance for everyone to chat informally with the winemaker and the artist, and to have them autograph bottles and limited edition giclees.
