Children’s art, labels and wine

Howard’s Folly launches new white Reserva with special wine label design

The artwork of children supported by the Sovereign Art Foundation (SAF) has been taken to a new level – it now features on the wine label of the new Reserva white launched this month by Estremoz-based winery Howard’s Folly. The initiative aims to help disadvantaged children, as part of the proceeds will go to SAF.

Says the winery, “whoever buys the Reserva Branco 2019 won’t only be purchasing an excellent harvest, produced by prized Australian winemaker David Baverstock, they will also be helping underprivileged children”.

This year, winery owner Howard Bilton, who is also Founder and Chairman of the Sovereign Art Foundation, decided to celebrate the work of SAF by using children’s artwork on wine labels.

SAF currently supports children in Asia but will soon start offering the same assistance to those in need in Portugal.

“For many years, SAF has hosted an art prize for schools which aims to encourage young talent at Portuguese schools. This prize has been mostly focused on schools in the Algarve, but there are now plans to extend it to the whole country,” said Bilton.

Meanwhile, the Reserva Branco 2019 is described as boasting “complex aromas of lime and citrus fruit with smoke and toasty oak”.
