Toller Cranston (1949-2015)
Magnotta Crackling Gamay Rosé VQA [no longer available]
Cranston's painting reminded me of a classic harlequin – bright and lively and full of fun – so it perfectly told the story of our Crackling Gamay Rosé. Gamay Noir is a popular grape around the world which we grow beautifully in Ontario. We offered a rosé version that was crackling which means it had an uplifting, crisp and refreshing spritz. Zesty and light and perfect for having fun with family and friends. A wonderful match with Toller's painting. - RM
Toller Cranston was born in Hamilton, Ontario in 1949 and grew up in Kirkland Lake. He was truly a modern day Renaissance man: an Olympic medalist, Member of the Order of Canada, three-time world figure-skating champion, Canadian Athlete of the Year, Internationally recognized painter, illustrator, author, designer, choreographer and sports commentator. Widely acclaimed as the most influential skater in the 20th century who revolutionized men’s figure-skating, he introduced artistry and freedom of movement on the ice and took figure skating to new heights. Cranston painted for almost as long as he had been skating. His skating and art have always had the ability to feed each other. As an artist, Cranston was highly respected by his peers and exhibited in numerous prestigious galleries throughout the world. On January 24, 2015, Cranston passed away at his home in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Source: koymangalleries.com
