The Bodega Seafood, Art & Wine Festival celebrates its 16th year when it gets underway August 28 and 29th. The festival brings revelers to Watts Ranch in the village of Bodega, California for art, music, wine, beer and plenty of seafood.

This scenic location in Sonoma County is where Alfred Hitchcock filmed his classic thriller, "The Birds." More than 30 wineries and 15 micro breweries will pour wine and beer, while 15 restaurants and catering companies will served up barbecued oysters, crab cakes, Key Lime calamari, clam chowder and other delicacies.

A juried art show and sale will feature the work of 100 artists and craftspeople and the festival also has three stages with a variety of musical entertainment, a Wild Wonders Animal Show and other activities for children including rubber duck races. Headline entertainment this year includes saxophonist Jules Broussard (Saturday afternoon) plus Dan Hicks and The Hot Licks (Sunday afternoon). Proceeds from the event support Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods, which works in partnership with the California State Parks Foundation to provide environmental stewardship programs, and the Bodega Volunteer Fire Department.

Festival hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, August 28, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, August 29. Tickets purchased in advance are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, $8 for children between the ages of 12 and 18, and free for children less than 12 years of age.

This project is a conceptual design for a Malbec wine packaging called “VIN”. I chose to incorporate strong angles and metallics, and to work within a simplistic color palette to draw on the crisp nature of the wine.

Although Lansdowne has been making juice for years, the ’09 Savvy was going to be their first release to the masses. They wanted to make every one count, so individually numbered the short run of 1160 as they rolled off the line. This gave them a limited number of random, loved or lucky numbers – designed to take to the bingo and simply get lucky with.

Divers in the Baltic Sea are believed to have discovered a trove of 230-year old Veuve Clicquot Champagne, believed to be the oldest drinkable Champagne ever found.

About 30 bottles are believed to be in the wreck. One of the dive-party's members reportedly opened one and tasted it, saying, "it tasted fantastic."

Swedish wine expert Carl-Jan Granquist estimates each bottle could bring around euro50,000 if the corks are in tact.

The bottles were discovered Tuesday, July 13 near the Aland Islands in the Baltic between Sweden and Finland.

The bottles are believed to be Veuve Cliquot, owned by Moet-Chandon, because of an anchor design on the cork, which the Champagne house used. The identity of the ship has not yet been determined.
