ORMIALE// 29 May – 25 July 2015
A show by
Fabrice Domercq Jasper Morrison Marc Newson
Rebecca Camhi gallery is happy to present a group show with works and objects by Fabrice Domercq, Jasper Morrison and Marc Newson. The show entitled ORMIALE emerged from the occasion of the presentation of the homonymous wine at Rebecca Camhi gallery. The three designers/artists have been producing the wine together during the last years in a small vineyard at Bordeaux, France.
The vineyard is situated in a beautiful location in the north of Entre-deux-Mers, 15 km south of St-Emilion. The red wine, Ormiale, is vinified and bottled at Grand Vin de Bordeaux. Two grape varieties are used for the creation of Ormiale: Merlot, 13 years on average and 50 years old Cabernet Sauvignon. No chemical pesticides are used on the vines while the whole production cycle is performed by hand – from pick up, peeling the grapes to sealing the bottles with wax and labelling. The annual production is approximately 3,500 bottles. More information can be found on Ormiale’s website (www.ormiale.com).
