French artist Philippe Dufrenoy is the creative force behind this painting of TWG Chairman Anthony Terlato and his sons Bill and John. Mr. Dufrenoy, a former engineer, always had an affinity for painting. Six years ago he purchased a bag full of paintbrushes and decided to try painting with wine, instead of paint. The above portrait is one of his works, featuring the three Terlatos in front of their family-owned Rutherford Hill Winery in Napa, California.

"Philippe is a marvelous artist, creating superb portraits," said Anthony Terlato. "His paint for capturing the images are those closest to our hearts."
