EAGLE POINT, Ore. -- Through a partnership with Red Lily Vineyards, students at Eagle Point High School are helping unveil a new wine, called Bridged Together. 

It's a student-led project, with them designing and creating the new labels, wine carriers, and even the stamp that adorns the top of each bottle.

Seniors Olivia Tucker and Jayden Pomeroy designed some of the labels. They also nominated charities to other members of the project; some of the proceeds from the wine sold will benefit the two they ultimately voted on: Hearts with a Mission and the Young Artist Institute.

"I feel like our charities are going to be connected to a wide range of the community," Pomeroy said. 

Seth McCoy, a sophomore, is in charge of designing the bottle stamp. 

"I took a 2D image and turned it into a 3D image and printed it out on the very expensive computer," McCoy said, referring to a Resin 3D printer. "I had to do a lot of research on how to do that."

Sagwa Lozano-Castillo and Jasmine Torres also helped with the project, design labels and building the carriers. 

"This is something that I've never experienced before -- like a real-life, real-world, first-hand experience," Lozano-Castillo said. 

The students and the vineyard will unveil the wine May 17, at 5:30 p.m. at Red Lily Vineyard. The public is invited to attend.
