[T]he initial approach to the development of this design is based on a fundamental premise: differentiation. The idea was to give a product which stands out from the rest of the range wines Prince of Viana.

[B]rand and design in homage to the Great Liberator José de San Martín. The design is inspired by the letters, post and communication of that time.
From the lands of river Plate to Mendoza, from Santiago to genteel Lima, he went, planting laurels along the way in his triumphal journey, San Martín. San Martín, the lord of war, by secret choice of God, was great when the sun was shining on him, and even greater in the sunset. Great father of the Argentine people, greatest hero of freedom! Beneath his shadow the fatherland grows in virtue, in work, and in peace.
San Martín! San Martín! may your name, the honour and glory of the people of the South, assure for ever the fates of the fatherland enlightened by your light.

Taber is the author of four books on wine. His latest is titled, A Toast to Bargain Wines: How innovators, iconoclasts, and winemaking revolutionaries are changing the way the world drinks.

[R]ooted in the same spirit of discovery as celebrated explorers, Lewis & Clark – and named for the year they first discovered Washington’s Columbia Valley – 1805 is an outstanding new wine from Washington’s Columbia Valley.
Drawing on the region’s rich heritage, the label design presents this significant date in a simple, elegant, yet contemporary manner, so as to connect with today’s consumers.
