About the Artist


Pic1
My name is Anthony Jones and I am a wine enthusiast, artist, and photographer. For over twenty-five years, I have been fortunate to experience many exquisite and often rare fine wines from around the world, as well as a myriad of other soundly made wines. These wonderful experiences have ignited in me, a passion for wine!

My inspiration for my Wine Cork Art stems from my tremendous passion for wine. 

In pursuit of this passion, I have immersed myself in learning all I can about wine. Delightfully, I have spent many hours reading, listening, talking, and tasting… as well as picking grapes in the vineyard and helping make wines in the winery…  I have sought out the knowledge of many passionate men and women from the wine industry and on-line community. I have read a myriad of books, by many notable authors, that encompass everything from wine basics to specific methodical approaches to tasting wine. I’ve studied Napa, Bordeaux, Burgundy, Spain, and Italy…  I’ve studied curriculums from the Court of Master Sommeliers and the International Sommelier Guild.

Being  immersed  in  this  delight  directed  journey  has  motivated  me to not  only  to  pursue  my sommelier credentials,  but more importantly understand and enjoy the elusive world, culture, and experience that we call …  WINE

 

The Romance!              The Elegance!               The Beauty!

 

But be well aware that nothing else we can do, will teach us more about wine than…

“DRINKING IT”

NOW THAT’S WHAT I CALL DELIGHT DIRECTED STUDY!!!

Many believe that separating a great wine from the experience in which it was enjoyed is impossible.

I AGREE !

Great wines are such an integral part of the experience that they become “one”.

I love my art and hope that you will too...
