Mark your calendar for May 20th to June 17th, it’s time again for the Portland Rose Festival. And again
ROSE CITY LABEL is proud to be printing the Oak Knoll Winery Label. Oak Knoll is the Official Wine of
the Portland Rose Festival.
The Portland Rose Festival and Oak Knoll are in mutual agreement, understanding, and commitment to
serving Portland. In 1987, Ron and Marjorie Vuylsteke initiated an art scholarship program that would be
given to an Oregon College of Art and Craft (OCAC) student through a label art contest. In order to encourage
and foster art within the Portland community, this recognition brings awareness to young artists at the
Oregon College of Art and Craft, and also greatly benefits the winning student. Once the rendering’s been
chosen, the student then goes through the entire wine label production process from working with the
designers, through all press checks, to seeing his or her final work on the wine bottles.
This year’s student recipient is Elizabeth Zimmerman. These are her labels shown above that won her
the contest! Pretty cool, huh? I would buy the wine just for the label alone but Oak Knoll is even a
great wine too.
