CLEARFIELD – The Clearfield Revitalization Corp. (CRC) has again partnered with Starr Hill Winery and graphic designer Ian Aughinbaugh for the release of the Fourth-Edition Wine of Clearfield.
The wine will debut at the 2014 Groundhog Wine Festival to be held Feb. 1 at the Expo II building of the Clearfield Fairgrounds. One dollar from each bottle sold is donated to the CRC to further its Main Street revitalization efforts. Aughinbaugh will be available to autograph your collector’s bottle.
Aughinbaugh, who has created the label for the past four years, states, “Now, that we’re a few years into this, I look forward to designing the label for not only the opportunity to create, but also the challenge to creatively display a different aspect of Clearfield each year.
“The CRC, Starr Hill Winery and I have put our heads together to come out with a winsome label design. [I would like to give] a special thank you to Element 9 Images for usage of this year’s photograph.”
Kenn Starr of Starr Hill Winery explains, “We have partnered with the CRC for the past four years and have contributed close to $2,000 and look forward seeing the success and enthusiasm of the CRC.
“Starting in January, we are on the road doing more than 56 wine festivals throughout the state of Pennsylvania. We always seem to find someone that is from the area and loves the wine.
They all say they need a bottle of ‘hometown Clearfield.’ The new fourth-edition bottle can be purchased at any of our Starr Hill Winery locations: inside County Market in Philipsburg and the Clearfield Mall, inside the Dubois Shop ‘n Save and the winery in Curwensville.” Starr Hill Winery produces thousands of gallons of more than 40 different wine choices every year.
Main Street Manager Heather Bozovich states, “The CRC is grateful to Starr Hill Winery and Ian Aughinbaugh for their generosity and support of Clearfield’s Main Street Program. This partnership serves not only to support our revitalization efforts, but also to provide the community with a product, which is uniquely theirs.”
