About the project
ALPINE GARDEN is multi-generational. They have roots in the mountains and if you haven't guessed, they have a "mountian garden." The fruit of their labor is WINE + CIDER. This is represented, pretty obviously, by the bottle. But the one bottle in symbolic because as Ryan told me when we first met, Cider IS Wine—makes total sense.
The roots carry a story as well. LOCAL ROOTS is represented by, again, pretty obviously, by the roots. But they form the skyline of the Presidential Mt Range and then extend deep into them. This alludes to the harsh mountain climate, where vines must struggle to keep growing—a struggle which ultimately leads to better tasting grapes and the wild flavors of MWV.
