Nashville Wine Find
“I came to you with a half-open heart…Dreams upon my back…Illusions of a brand new start…Nashville…Can’t I carry the load?…Is it my fault that – I can’t reap what I sow?…Nashville…” - Indigo Girls
If Nashville stirs in you nostalgia, excitement, or country music appreciation (and if it’s the latter – ugh), you might enjoy this trendy byproduct of an old Nashville institution.
The Show Wines, a trendy line of wines to come out of the Tennessee city, were designed to pay homage to the great Hatch Show Print store.
Hatch has filled venues for many decades with their unique and expressive posters, each turned out by hand on crank presses. In the early days (circa 1879), Hatch promoted circuses and traveling shows, products like sausage and bread, Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, B. B. King, and the stars of the Grand Ole Opry. However, today, Hatch is busier than ever. From posters for Willie Nelson, Springstein, Coldplay, and The Strokes, to Jack Daniels ads, to wedding invitations, (and of course) to wine labels, Hatch is in demand. For more, click here.
We haven’t tried, but between art, wine, and Nashville, things are in line for the elaney seal of approval! Let us know your thoughts!
