Pieter started having Epilepsy at the age of 30. Then in November 2013, whilst not on medication, he had another huge epileptic fit (the second one ever). So the Dr booked him off driving, surfing, and screens. And this is how he started to design his new labels for the 2013 wines. He could not look at the computer due to the flickering screen. So he started making use of scissors, paint, Lino, pencil and old paper. And the result:  He had a breakthrough in design.
