For a creative twist, Celebrate Mother’s Day painting in the vineyard at Sunstone Winery! Capture the incredible scenery on canvas with a paintbrush in one hand and a wine glass in the other. The vineyard provides a beautiful, stress-free environment that will both inspire your creative spirit and indulge the wine-lover in you.
Don’t consider yourself an artist just yet? Don’t worry. Our locally trained artist, Christi Schaeffer of Gypsy Art Studios, will walk you through the entire painting process step-by-step. No brushes, canvas or previous painting experience necessary. You’ll be amazed at what you can create in just a few hours- even if you’ve never picked up a paintbrush since the seventh grade.
We’ll begin our adventure at 11am at the tasting room courtyard with a glass of our famous “Sunstone Sunrise” (Mimosa of course). Then, we’ll make the short walk* up to the vineyard for a two-hour painting session in the vineyard.
Once you’ve created your masterpieces, you’ll be escorted back to the exclusive Cuvee Cave and La Cav lounge for a complimentary Reserve Tasting, treated as “members for the day”. Painters will also receive a special offer on bottle
“Plein air style is our jam. We paint what we see….whatever this particular day is serving up in the way of light and clouds, blooms and branches, dry or lush. It’s the way we capture the moment. It’s how we stay present and grateful for today.
Gypsy Studios is really all about making a space for creative expression in an environment that is real and now and hits every sense with which a human is gifted…it’s about the experience. And, it’s about leaving a painting class or a vineyard painting session with a newfound appreciation for the world we live in and our own unique creative contribution. It’s an exercise in remembering that we are special, important and unique…that we take up an important space on this earth and that we have been designed to be in connection with that space.” – Christi Schaeffer, owner of Gypsy Art Studios.
