Invitation by the Ribeira da Isna Association, to paint the logo of a series of 50 bottles of wine for auction.  

Text made to integrate on the back of the bottle:

"For the majority of the Portuguese, is a place unknown. For a few dozen people's paradise on Earth. Are people usual visitors or even immigrants, all and each one of these people has in a common passion: the Ribeira da Isna. In between two mountains of the Sierra de Alvelos, through that town, breathing practices and customs with decades of age. Since the agricultural habits the knowledge of ancestors already far-flung people of Ribeira da Isna convey wisdom with a simple gesture or a simple look. 

The beauty of the Earth is not only in the landscape. Is in the hardness of dirt in the curves and reverse curves of the Creek, the rocks rounded by power of water or slow the last time each day. When we taste this wine, we may be thousands of miles of distance from Ribeira da Isna. But when we lay the juice in mouth and close the eyes, hear the rustle of the trees and probably the swash of the waters of Ribeira da Isna!"
