Ellie's is a tribute to Craig's mother, an artist and teacher, who enlisted in World War II the very day the U.S. Navy announced it would accept women. Ellie spent her military career teaching pilots celestial navigation, and her love for her country, her family, and art defined her life. Ellie’s patriotism and creativity inspired Craig's love of country and lifelong interest in art collecting. The artwork on this label is a pencil drawing by Ellie of an owl overlooking a family vineyard.
