For our first cover of 2023, we’ve chosen Helios, the Greek God of Sun. It graces the east end of the Phantom Creek vineyards so it can catch the sunrise. Carved in Golden Siena marble from Italy, this piece was designed and created by artist Emily Young.
Young sculpts stones as she finds them with the goal of celebrating and embracing nature’s inherent beauty. This reflects the organic and biodynamic farming they practice at Phantom Creek Estates, including the non-interventionist winemaking practices in the cellar. Check out Helios as well as other fantastic sculptures and some great wines.
