 “There are many ways to look at life. To me, colour is life. The paintings I create come from my heart. They are spontaneous, they just happen. I mainly work with acrylics, and usually end up adding collage elements to my work. I love texture! My inspiration are nature, shapes and colours. I am intrigued by the simplicity of things and I am mesmerized by the interaction of bright and friendly colours found in nature, which I try to integrate into my art work. My ultimate goal is to convey a positive message and to provide an oasis of peace of mind with my paintings – I want people to smile when they look at my art.” Martina Escudero-Wolf

A Crush on a Prince

November 11th, 2010 | Posted in Cabernet Franc, event


Engine Communication folksLast fall, 5 adventurous souls from Engine Communications  in Belleville, challenged themselves to eat locally for five days. Highlights from their adventure were filmed  by  TVCOGECO  and will air November 11th at 8pm, viewing areas are listed here .

This adventurous group discovered some interesting things along the way and one of those was regarding beverages, although coffee is not grown within 100 miles,  grapes sure are and there is an abundance of local wine readily available  for consumption. 

During the fifth day of their challenge the group made their way over to Black Prince Winery for a tasting,  it was the harvest season and we thought it would be fun to challenge them to a little crush off.  Lined up in the plant they were given 2 minutes to crush as much juice out of a bucket of grapes as they could using only their hands.  A good time was had by all and the winner of the challenge was Shaun. Congratulations, Shaun and thanks to all for being wonderful sports!
