First Ever Release: Bonny Doon's Banana Slug Roussanne! Benefits UCSC Arts Students

Judging from the bottle labels/covers, you may have thought Bonny Doon's previous wines were art student oriented, what with their flashy graphics and all. Well now it's official - there's a Bonny Doon wine to benefit (in part) the arts students at UC Santa Cruz, named, appropriately enough, Banana Slug Roussanne. 

Of course the designs also come from the students.

(The banana slug is the official mascot of U.C. Santa Cruz.)

The 2010 vintage, sourced exclusively from the winery's estate Beeswax vineyard (100% biodynamic), sells for $16. (Wine club member price is $13.60). Only 600 cases made - get some now!
