The Ridgefield community is home to more than ten vineyards and wineries. The wineries combine the best traditions of winemaking and the nearly perfect growing climate of southwest Washington to produce wines with distinct flavor and character.
In 2015, the City launched an exciting campaign in support of the growing wine scene. Marechal Foch grapes were planted in the roundabouts leading into Ridgefield. In 2018, the grapes were used to produce the first bottles of Ridgefield Roundabout Red wine. Gouger Cellars Winery bottled the first batch and Windy Hills Winery made and bottled the 2021 batch of wine. 14 Acres Winery is in the process of bottling two batches: 2022 Roundabout Red and, for the first time, a 2023 Roundabout Rose.
It is the intent that each batch of wine will have a wine label with unique artwork created by a local artist. The artwork on the 2018 and 2021 bottles was created by local artists specifically for the wine label. The City is now seeking unique artwork for the 2022 Ridgefield Roundabout Red and one for a 2023 Ridgefield Roundabout Rose.
The application period for this Call to Artists has closed. Thank you to all artists who submitted an application packet.
