Chateau du Cookie




Donald Roller Wilson, the Fayetteville artist, has licensed one of his famous paintings of Cookie, everybody's favorite primate, for the front label of a fine New Mexican wine, a 2006 cabernet from Willmon Vineyards. (Shown is the back label, with smaller image of Cookie.) He explains in an e-mail that Scott and Jessica Willmon, owners of the vineyard, are collectors of his work and he allowed a one-time use. The Cookie painting belongs to the owner of an airline, Gold Transportation, which Roller describes as devoted to transportation of "high rollers, no pun intended."
