What's Behind a Tattoo? Tattoos have served as rites of passage; marks of status and rank; symbols of religious and spiritual devotion; decorations for bravery; sexual lures and marks of fertility; pledges of love & punishment, and as marks of outcasts, slaves and convicts. The symbolism and impact of tattoos varies in different places and cultures.
Katherine von Drachenberg (born March 8, 1982), best known as Kat Von D, is a Mexican-born, American tattoo artist, model, musician and television personality. She is best known for her work as a tattoo artist on the TLC reality television show LA Ink, which premiered August 7, 2007, in the United States and ran for four seasons.
Her first book, High Voltage Tattoo, compiling her artworks and tattoos, with a foreword by Mötley Crüe's Nikki Sixx, was released in January 2009 and reached #6 on The New York Times Best Seller list. Von D described the book as "not an autobiography, you know, 'cause I'm too young to do that. But this is just kind of like a picture-driven outline of my career as an artist.

The tasting room is a two-story structure built, in large part, from recycled materials. Its façade consists of native stone at its base and more than 15,000 handmade adobe bricks on exterior walls which Wine & Spirits magazine cited as one of the top examples of winery architectural design in the U.S. in 2006
The Winery and Vineyards discovered an overlooked, grape-growing treasure . Recognizing a magical combination of climate and soil conditions much like those in France's famed Burgundy province, Corked winery planted the area's first Pinot Noir, along with Chardonnay, on its landmark vineyard.
Pinot Noir and Chardonnay have thrived ever since, and so has Corked Wine Trail. The winery's Pinot Noir ranks among the best and most distinctive in the world.
Today, the LA River is paved and the vineyards have been replaced with businesses and homes. The Vineyard Lacollina Winery remains the last producing winery in Los Angeles with over 97 years of winemaking under its belt, making it an essential component of the city’s cultural and historical landscape. In fact, in the early 1960s, Los Angeles’ Cultural Heritage Board designated the winery Cultural Monument Number 42. Still sitting on its original location on Amar Street, the winery is the last vestige of the rich winemaking tradition of the greater Los Angeles.
We are blessed today to have four generations of family contributing to our success. Our vineyards are now located in Paso Robles, Monterey, and Napa Valley and we are proud to be the most awarded winery in Los Angeles. We invite you to become part of our family by visiting the Vineyard Lacollina!
