Art & Wine
Installed in June of 2015, The Goddess of the Grapes graces the grounds of Parley Lake Winery as the official face of the winery and vineyard. The seven-foot bronze sculpture was created by our own, Deb Zeller, sculptor and one of the principal owners of Parley Lake Winery.
“As we were getting ready to open over seven years ago, I was put to the challenge to create something that would represent Parley Lake Winery,” Zeller recalls.
The Goddess, as she is known as at the winery, took four years to complete start to finish.

During the winery's open season, you can find Deb most weekends sharing her artwork with our guests -drawing portraits of them as part of the winery's Parley Portraits experience. Deb has drawn more than 1,000 of Parley Lake Winery's guests.
Her artwork can not only be seen at Parley Lake Winery, but she has had several publicly displayed sculptures across the United States and Canada.
