The Mallow Run

Artist Series

Mallow Run Winery is proud to present our Artist Series Wine project. Every year, a special wine is released featuring label artwork from a local artist that is chosen from dozens of submissions. This year’s theme is Works of Art inspired by Johnson County’s Bicentennial; this could be a historical landmark, your favorite spot, a special memory, or even a feeling that brings you back to Johnson County. A portion of the proceeds from this wine will be dedicated to the Historical Society of Johnson County.
The Johnson County Historical Society is a non-profit, educational institution whose purpose is to collect, preserve, interpret, and promote the material culture of the Johnson County Region.
