2015 Year of Wine

2015 will be the Year of the Wine according to Pantone’s color of the year choice, just announced this week.

It seems the color goes back in time (or forward to the past?) — specifically to fall, 1975…sears_1975catalogSears 1975 catalog

Or maybe after days of color scrutiny – and a few too many Noir’s – a Pantone color expert spilled a glass of wine on the boardroom carpet, and the team was like “That’s it!!” winespill2015 — the year of spilled wine.

I’m think I’ll have to celebrate early…
