Rita Hills AVA in Santa Barbara, California, the label produces three varietal wines; a Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and rosé Syrah.

The 2016 Campari calendar takes the theme of a presidential election presenting two opposing sides of the Italian apéritif – bitter and sweet – and encouraging people to “take a side”.

Discussing her involvement in the 2016 Campari campaign Hudson said: “I was honoured to be invited to shoot the 2016 Campari Calendar. This year’s theme plays off the upcoming election, which is the perfect metaphor for the many Campari flavour choices. I loved working with Michelangelo to create two distinctive characters embodying bitter and sweet.”

Shots for the calendar were captured by fashion photographer, Michelangelo Di Battista.

“Campari is a brand that has always had a clear sense of aesthetic and well-defined style, which is exactly what I pride myself on”, said Di Battista. “Kate’s enthusiasm and ability to switch between the two personalities allowed me to create images I hope are fresh, inspiring and imaginative.”

A full unveil of the 2016 Campari calendar will take place on 18 November. Last year Bond girl Eva Green took on the role.
