[B]uddy created these festive mulled wine bottles to send to their clients and friends. A limited edition of 60 labels were hand printed, signed and numbered before being sent.
[V]otre Santé wines pay tribute to Francis Coppola’s paternal grandmother, Maria Zasa, who would toast with the traditional French phrase, ‘à votre santé,’ each time she raised her glass. In her honor, Francis Ford Coppola Winery created a Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, France’s two classic Burgundian varietals, in a delicate style that makes them perfect pleasures you can enjoy on any occasion.
My father’s mother, Maria Zasa, was an Italian born in Tunisia, a French protectorate at the time. It was a treat to grow up with a grandmother who spoke English, Italian, Arabic and French. I remember the little French songs she would sing to us about the marionettes, and also her toast when she was about to sip a glass of wine. She would always say, ‘à votre santé’ -to your health.
[N]ew wine branding project by Neogine Design, Te Pa for Montford wines (New Zealand). A Blenheim winemaker with a rich history. Based at the Wairau Bar, the oldest inhabited piece of land in Aotearoa, the ancestors of the McDonald family have lived on this land since 1350. The branding captures this rich history a well as their love of the land and the life it provides. The first piece of material to be rolled out are the wine labels, with website and photography to come. If you look closely you can see the stories from the land captured in the typographic map, which is overglossed on the label.

[F]airtrade accredited wine Place in the Sun, Shiraz 2010.
[W]hen Snake (Winemaker) and Herring (Wine Purveyor) approached braincells to launch their new wine project in early 2011, they wanted to do something different. Armed with a clear mission statement, they set out to create a wine package that would stand out from the crowd.
The label captures Snake and Herring flying in a grape balloon across the West Australian landscape searching for wines of exceptional quality. The full bleed illustration is highly detailed with a storybook quality to the finish. The top tier wine label is more refined, focusing on the balloon itself. The label is embellished with coloured foil, hi-build varnish and two detailed silk screens.
[T]he De Kleine Wijn Koöp is a circle of friends, made up of sommeliers and graphic artists. As we deal with wine on a daily basis, every now and then we stumble upon a wine too small to fit into a particular winemaker’s series or simply too strange and unique to suit the commercial market. We then buy in these wines and dress it in a more ‘flip-flops and board shorts’ than ‘black-tie’ fashion.
De Kleine Wijn Koöp is a playground for our creative expression, outside of the conventions of the wine-shop’s shelf. Brace yourself for once-off, unique wine offerings.
Our fist offering is duly named, the “Debutant” and there are only 600 bottles available, each numbered by hand. It costs R150 for one of these wines.

[S]ome redesigns are subtle and slightly refreshed. Change a border, enhance a background, and update a brand mark. Others are more intense and can breathe new life into a brand in need of rejuvenation. A clever Voicebox associate once compared the varying degrees of package redesign to cosmetic surgery, describing the level of departure from the original as follows:
2. Tummy Tuck
3. Gender Reassignment
Based on that scale, we’re proud to be a solid 3 with Lot 96. The redesign was a complete overhaul; from bottle shape, label shape, both brand and sub-brand marks to paper, imagery, color palette, and finishes. We essentially started from scratch, much like the winery itself has in recent years with its new winemaking team, practices, and processes.
Best known for its flagship varietal, Petite Sirah, Lot 96 commemorates Foppiano’s founding in 1896. The redesign celebrates Foppiano’s rich heritage with a bold and contemporary numeric lock-up and striking color palette, which is offset by a vintage photo of Louis M. Foppiano signifying one of five generations of Foppiano descendants to take part in the family wine business.
[D]reamer is a line of sweet wines, that is best selling in Estonia. The hallmark of those wines has been a picture of a dreaming man. "Dreamer – Fresh & Fruity" is a new extension of the line, that has a semi-sweet taste and has a different, more modern design. I have added a picture that compares the old and the new label.
