The concept behind the myfinbec project is to bring the world of art / graffiti together with the art of wine making. In 2013, Los Angeles based artist David Choe came to Cave Fin Bec in Switzerland and painted eight murals that would be used as the artwork for eight wine labels. Each mural was painted on large wooden canvases constructed using a total of 672 wood wine crates. After the grape harvest in Autumn, each painting is dismantled and filled with six bottles of award winning organic wine in each case. These 672 cases are then sent all over the world for everyone to enjoy.
"David Choe is an amazing painter. The freedom of expression that he has is quite unlike most other painters that I know. Most of the stuff that he is painting comes right out of his head. So most people are using reference material to refer to, Dave is just drawing on that vast pit of imagination that's somewhere inside of his mind. So he has a very free and loose style. Which makes him a very interesting painter. Dave could paint a 200 foot mural out on the street, or sit for hours on end painting with a one hair paintbrush." - Steve Lazarides, Lazarides Art Gallery, London
Cave Fin Bec's Domaine Châtroz Rouge is an organic red wine with ripe black currants and black pepper on the nose with nice hint of oak. This wine is a blend of cabernet franc, cabernet saugignon and merlot grapes and is a nicely structured wine. On the palate it is very jammy with a slight hint of clove.
The Domaine Chatroz Blanc is an organic white wine with an intense floral nose with hints of fresh fruit and almond. On the palate it has a soft fine acidity with hints of fresh cut grass and candied fruits.
ABOUT CAVE FIN BEC

What if you watch a film and whenever you pause it, you face a painting? This idea inspired Reza Dolatabadi to make Khoda. Over 6000 paintings were painstakingly produced during two years to create a five minutes film that would meet high personal standards. Khoda is a psychological thriller; a student project which was seen as a ‘mission impossible’ by many people but eventually proved possible...Enjoy!
