Dear Mr. Dowd:
I was recently treated to a Ukrainian wine that had a rendition of the crucifixion of Christ as the label. Are you familiar with this wine?
It was wonderful (but) with the entire label unreadable to my American eye we have no idea what the name is or where it is made. Just wondering if you are able to shed some light.

I've been researching your question, but haven't come up with a specific name. Several sources say putting such imagery on wine at certain times of the year is commonplace and not restricted to any one label.
