Small Press Story #28: Playing Cards and Wine

When Raconteurs Press publisher Tom Parker wanted to reuse his illustrations for his guide to Washington wineries, his answer was playing cards. Following the success of the "Washington Wine Playing Cards," Raconteurs has added "Vineyard Traditions Classic Wine Playing Cards."

The "Vineyard Traditions" cards celebrate the classic wine grape varieties prized from ancient times through today. Every face card in this two deck Bridge-size set features a beautiful illustration depicting grape varieties, winemaking scenes, historical wine subjects, wine facts and trivia, and much more relevant to all wineries and wine regions.
