hi jeff

you sure that logo wasn't hand-written, then scanned in?
the 2 "i" charecters in DiVino seem quite dissimilar to eaach other, so it
possibly isn't a font at all?

just a thought

The dots look different, but the body of the i's look the same to me. OTOH, what do I know...

If the script is a font, it would take a miracle — someone just happening upon it — to find it. The f looks font-like; the i not. So who knows?

The small type is too small to identify with any certainty, but it doesn’t contribute a whole lot to the impact, so you could probably use something about that weight.

Looks to me like it was inspired by or bits pulled directly from Cezanne: http://www.p22.com/products/cezanne.html

Yes! That's it. The 'V' and 'f' are dead on.

You're right, Kathleen, this forum is a place where miracles happen.

Thank you, everyone.

Elyse, it's great to "see" you again! ;-)
