water[shed] Restore Pedder Pinot Noir

OUTSIDE THE BOX / Earth Arts Rights has partnered with Will and Jacquie Adkins of the Tamar Valley vineyard Westella to produce a special release twin pack of their 2019 Pinot Noir to support the Restore Pedder campaign.

Will and Jacquie are passionate about Tasmania’s natural environment and creative arts. This Restore Pedder Pinot Noir is their contribution to the celebration and protection of our exceptional island state.

Both bottles feature the artwork of celebrated Tasmanian artist Sue Lovegrove. Westella’s relationship with Sue extends back to the earliest days of the vineyard with the use of The long walk, Skullbone Plains, Tasmania (2014) as the featured artwork across the full range of Westella wines.

The special release Restore Pedder Pinot Noir label features a detail from Mapping the invisible, [reconstructed map] (2021) that Sue created for the water[shed] exhibition. The work depicts an evocative and intricate recreation of the rivers and creeks that formed the original watershed of Lake Pedder prior to its flooding in 1972.

We thank Labelhouse, Melbourne for their generosity in printing our Restore Pedder special release label.

Raise a glass to Lake Pedder’s restoration and raise campaign funds too.
