For those aesthetically inclined wine lovers living in San Francisco. On Sunday, which happens to be French Heritage day (who knew?), the San Francisco Consul General of France and his wife will be opening their home to the public in order to facilitate an exhibition of wine related posters by French artist Jean-Pierre Got.
Got creates images in the style of the old vintage advertising posters that you often see hanging on cafe and restaurant walls - whimsical, colorful, and sometimes quite stunning in their Art Deco and Art Nouveau style.
Got himself will be in attendance at the exhibition which will feature images created for California wineries.
