11 October 2016 Introducing Bromley by Wolf Blass Introducing Bromley by Wolf Blass We are proud to announce that Wolf Blass and acclaimed Australian artist David Bromley have once again joined creative forces, this time to release a stunning new wine series – Bromley by Wolf Blass. Bromley by Wolf Blass is a celebration of two South Australian identities that are innovators in their fields – Wolfgang Blass in wine and David Bromley in art. Inspired by Blass's world-famous wines and Bromley’s most coveted collections, Bromley by Wolf Blass strikes a harmonious balance between pleasing the eye and the palate. The collection features some of Bromley’s most recognised art on the labels – from his Birds, Nudes and Butterflies series – providing the opportunity to buy into both the art and wine at an affordable price. Bromley has enjoyed the creative process of this new project. “There are so many beautiful synergies across the art and wine worlds, and Bromley by Wolf Blass seemed like the next natural step in mine and Wolfgang’s enduring partnership,” he said. “Both wine and art bring such joy to people’s lives; this is a collaboration in the truest sense and I’m thrilled with the result – a range of premium, beautifully packaged wines which make wonderful gifts or statement pieces for your home.” In 2014, David Bromley commemorated Wolf Blass's 80th birthday by painting his portrait, which was entered into the Archibald prize, and now proudly hangs in the Wolf Blass Visitor Centre. Bromley has been appointed Creative Director of the Wolf Blass Birdcage marquee for the second year running, after a highly successful partnership at the 2015 Melbourne Cup Carnival. Each of the original artworks that feature on the labels will be displayed inside the marquee during all four main race days at a combined estimated value of $90K. The exterior of the marquee is also set to impress, adorned with a large-scale collage of the wine label artworks meticulously hand-painted by Bromley himself. Paying homage to the Bromley by Wolf Blass collaboration, the finished artwork will be valued at an estimated $350K.
