“I’ve been fascinated by cars since I was a teenager and enjoyed building and restoring these vintage cars,” notes Bruce Cohn. “It made sense, especially considering the attention the cars get in auto shows and parades, that I memorialize them with their own wine labels. They make the perfect gift for any wine lover that enjoys classic cars.” ~ Bruce Cohn
1933 Willys Roadster
One of only 98 built in Australia, this very rare Willys Roadster was rebuilt by Bruce Cohn over 18 years as a street hot rod. After winning top awards in several West Coat shows, this Roadster now serves as one of Bruce’s daily drivers.
1946 Ford Woody Wagon
This Woody Wagon was shipped new to Manila in the Philippines, and served as a U.S. Embassy car after WWII. Restored by local craftsmen in the Philippines. It drives like a brand new car, with the exception of a few squeaks in the wood doors.
1941 Willys Panel Wagon
This one of a kind custom built Willys Panel Wagon joins Bruce Cohn’s collection of unique classic cars. Features a 6.1 liter Chrysler Hemi V8 engine, full tube racing chassis, and all modern running gear.
1963 Century Resorter
A fully restored Century Resorter serves as the family ski boat. V8 powered, mahogany ski boat is named Olive Oil, after another of Bruce’s passions: extra virgin olive oils, handcrafted vinegars and gourmet food products.
1934 Henry Ford Five-Window Coupe
This Five-Window Coupe is a classic “barn find” which was beautifully restored by local craftsmen and serves as Bruce’s daily driver. The restoration included the original all steel body, custom chassis, Corvette 327 engine, and all modern conveniences including air-conditioning.
The classic car label series features paintings that are captured by local Sonoma Valley artist Will Combs. He is a former hollywood art director, that now maintains a converted barn studio high above Glen Ellen on the north face of Sonoma Mountain. His paintings are exhibited, commissioned and collected worldwide. Each painting is designed to embody the uniqueness of each vehicle and the surrounding landscape.
As you arrive at our tasting room, take some time to admire the one-of-a-kind works of local artist, Patrick Amiot. These fun hand crafted pieces of art are created using recycled materials and are inspired by Bruce Cohn’s car collection.
