Teresa Riesling 2015 wears a new label, bringing her more in line with a pure Catholic feel that Good Catholic Girl is seeking. I wish for my labels to whisper Catholic as though they may have come from the Vatican! To feel like beautiful treasures of the past. I am not changing the original art work but tweaking where necessary to make them look richer and more beautiful. The inspiration for this label comes from my mother Teresa’s First Holy Communion Certificate presented to her in 1935 when she was 7 at St Michaels Church in Clare. It is simply pure history of person and place, portrayed in a beautiful holy picture so gentle and elegant which I think fits perfectly with the qualities I strive for in my Riesling. My brand is about family history, links to Clare and the history of both, how it is all inter-wined and what some good catholic girls had to do with the whole damn thing.
None of this could have been achieved without the divine inspirations of Lynn of Lyn Mitchell Design.
