We’re always saying that Le Metro would be nowhere without the support of our community, and that’s especially true in the case of our events. Our Rooftop Rosé Dance Party at The Westgate Hotel on June 20 (purchase your tickets here!) wouldn’t be possible without the help of our friends here in San Diego. In particular, we’d like to thank Realstir – The Next Generation in National Home Search – who has generously sponsored our musical entertainment for the evening. Thanks to Realstir, we’ll have 14-piece funk & soul band Bump N Brass to keep us moving!
Our parent company, PROTOCOL wine studio, needs no introduction here, but deserves endless thanks on behalf of all who are involved with Le Metro. Our wine club wouldn’t exist were it not for PROTOCOL’s Tina Morey and GUY, and although she’ll rarely take the credit, Tina is the event-planning force behind each of our unique shindigs. We hope you can join us at one of our upcoming events to see what she has pulled together!
At Le Metro, we take take great pride in the fact that our project allows us to share with you not only the most dynamic wines in the world, but also the work of immensely talented artists such as our current collaborator Ray Ferrer. Today, Volume XXII: Underground Australia goes to press, which is our second edition to feature Ray’s artwork.
It’s not only Ray’s vision that is entirely unique, but also his process; the “urban wall art” that he creates is made by use of spray paint on canvas and Ray’s own hand-cut stencils. In fact, it’s gained him sponsorship from both X-Acto (whose blades he uses to cut his stencils) and Plutonium Paint. We’ve never seen anything like Ray’s work.
Nor have we met anybody else like Ray, who likes to say that he “traded in his MBA for spray paint,” and happens to have relocated from New York to San Diego in 2014. It’s a pleasure and an honor to have Ray as part of the Le Metro crew, and we’re excited that there’s still one more piece on the way from him for April.
We still have a few sets of Zinfandel Rising in stock, which contains Ray’s painting, “Wine, Anybody?,” and Underground Australia is also available for pre-order. And if you like what you see here of Ray’s work, please do click on over to his website; he and his family could really use your support right about now.
