The prestigious Bordeaux property Château Mouton-Rothschild and the famous champagne house Taittinger are well known for their linking of art and wine. Mouton Rothschild decorates the label of each new vintage with a painting by a famous (or sometimes not so famous) artist. Taittinger has made a series of champagne bottles designed by artists, with sometimes very original results. Philippe Margot, a Swiss wine enthusiast and wine journalist has written two ebooks about the links between art and wine for these two houses. Read them online here: Mouton-Rothschild and on the house of Taittinger (click on the cover to read the book).
