Lompoc, CA (October 22, 2021) – All are invited to join in a reception on Friday, November 5, from 4-6pm at Flying Goat Cellars Tasting Room, located at 1520 East Chestnut Court in Lompoc. We are honoring the wine-inspired fluid paintings of local artist Chris Jeszeck and a new wine label for the non-profit Return to Freedom Wild Horse Conservation. Both paintings and wine make great holiday gifts so bring your shopping list to support philanthropy in our community.
Local artist Chris Jeszeck is a painter of realism and abstract, in acrylics, oils and colored pencils. Above all, she is attracted to color and our exhibit features some of her colorful wine-inspired pieces. “Placing color upon a canvas can convey a mood and provoke feelings in the viewer and hopefully a connection to the art itself. If I have one goal with my art and the use of color, it would be to make the viewer smile,” said Jeszeck. Visit www.chrissypaints.com or www.youtube.com/c/ChrisJeszeck to learn more.
Flying Goat Cellars and Return to Freedom collaborated on the new wine label, Celebrate Freedom, to benefit the wild horses and burros at Return to Freedom sanctuaries.

Winemaker Norm Yost created a special bottling of 2019 Pinot Noir from Rio Vista Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA to launch the project. Purchase at www.flyinggoatcellars.com.
