Wine label contest benefits Dungeness lighthouse

The New Dungeness Light Station Association and Wind Rose Cellars announce their second annual photography and art contest.

The winning submission will be featured on the label of the 2017 Wind Rose Cellars limited bottle release of Light Station Blanco for the benefit of the Light Station Association, which has managed and maintained the 160-year-old New Dungeness Light Station with volunteer labor and donations since 1994.

Entries are due by 11:59 p.m. Feb. 15, 2018. Entries may have been created at any time and must depict the New Dungeness Light Station. Entries may originate in any format — including, but not limited to, digital files, digital prints, color transparencies, color prints, or black and white prints — so long as they are submitted electronically in a .JPEG, .jpg, or.png form.

The winning entry will be featured on the label of the limited edition bottling and promotion of it. The winning entrant will receive two custom engraved bottles of the wine and an annual membership to the New Dungeness Light Station Association.

A $10 entry fee that will be used to help offset the cost of printing the labels and bottling must accompany each photo or art submission. If entry fees exceed the cost of labeling, excess funds go directly to lighthouse maintenance projects.

Send entries to: labelcontest@newdungenesslighthouse.com.

Tom Sinton, president of the Light Station Association, says he is thrilled that Wind Rose Cellars owner David Volmut has again offered to work with the Association on this fund raising project.

“We continue to have major needs, including replacing concrete and stucco on the foundations of both the lighthouse and the keeper’s quarters, repairing plumbing and replacing all of the leaking gutters,” Sinton said. “These projects, along with our long list of regular maintenance items, mean that this will again be a big summer of work at the lighthouse.”

Volmut is again donating 15 percent of all sales to the lighthouse association. He partnered with the lighthouse for its first ever wine this year, a 2016 Sauvignon Blanc.

“We love working with local non-profits for the betterment of the community,” he said.
