Canfield Design Studios, Inc. A Website Redesign for
La Dolce Vita Wine Tours

La Dolce Vita Wine Tours is a boutique tour operator founded in 1999 that offers educational wine vacations in Italy, Spain, and Portugal. Canfield Design Studios designed the original website about eight years ago, and we are proud to announce the launch of the upgraded version!

The tours of La Dolce Vita aren't simply about stellar wine and gourmet food. They're an entry point to Italian culture. Wine is a magnificent portal. It's a door that leads to the world of the winemaker: equal parts farmer and artist, scientist and alchemist.

This Month's Featured Artwork:
The Seasons

"The Seasons" began as a circle extending over four sheets. Each panel represents a season, but as in life, there is no distinct cut-off from one season to the next. Elements of "Spring" are beginning to show in "Winter" and remnants of "Winter" still remain at the edges of "Spring."

"The Seasons" reflects the yearly circle of growth, decay and rest, and rebirth. In "Spring," mere threads of green burst into brilliant flower-like forms as they reach and extend beyond the limits of the circle. "Summer" is an exuberant struggle of colors that almost overwhelms the blue of sky and water. "Fall" is a maelstrom of melted scarlet; touches of white presage winter's arrival. "Winter" has a severe and icy quality that is served well by the watercolor medium.

Each section is 20" x 30"
Completed in 2003
