Our newly released Sparkling Winnipesaukee Rosé honors a very special person

Posted 11/21/18

On June 23, 2017, the Meredith community was deeply saddened by the loss of Christine Hodecker-George, a long time Meredith resident and well-respected painter. Around the same time, Christine’s brother, Stephen Hodecker, created the artwork that is featured on our Winnipesaukee Rosé label as a contribution to our effort to raise funds for the Lake Winnipesaukee Association.

Shortly after Christine’s passing, we held a fundraiser/art exhibit to celebrate the release of our Winnipesaukee Rosé. To honor Christine, Stephen hung several of Christine’s works alongside his. One of those works was also one of Christine’s last paintings, “Strawberry Moon”. Hermit Woods purchased this painting and it now holds a special place in our winery for all to enjoy.

With the ever-growing popularity of our Winnipesaukee Rosé, Hermit Woods decided to release a sparkling version of this outstanding wine. As with our original rosé label, we wanted the label to feature artwork by a local artist and we thought what better choice than Christine’s “Strawberry Moon.”

 

With the Christine’s family’s permission, Hermit Woods decided to feature the image of “Strawberry Moon” on our Sparkling Winnipesaukee Rosé label to honor Christine and include her story on the back label as a tribute to a very special and talented person whose life was too short.

Christine was born on Sept. 2, 1953, in Lynn, Massachusetts, to Richard and Barbara (McGinn) Hodecker.

After settling in Meredith with her family, she later graduated from Inter-Lakes High School in 1971 and went on to attend Plymouth State College in Plymouth.

Christine pursued her career as an artist much the same way she faced life — head-on. Almost always she could be found in her Meredith gallery, working intently on her latest painting or eagerly sharing her talent by teaching others.

Her passion for art was matched only by a fierce commitment to family, friends, and community. She was selflessly dedicated to others and actively gave her time to local causes and organizations such as the Greater Meredith Program, the Meredith Rotary Club, the Got Lunch Program, and the New Hampshire Humane Society.

Those who knew her will find comfort knowing that she continued to paint, even during her final days. It comes as no surprise that Christine never put down the brush. She will be missed, but her spirit will carry on in the hearts and minds of everyone who knew her, and in the tremendous body of work that she graciously chose to share with us all.
