File Under: Label Porn

 

I don’t plan on writing too much about wine on here (although I do love it), but I’m a whore for good design, and bottle labels are a great outlet for creativity. One design site I’ve stumbled across (and you should too) is TheDieline.com, which has a special category for wine and spirits packaging. After fawning over all of the lovely pictures, I thought I would share these amusing wine designs for some graphic art inspiration: R Wines’ Luchador Shiraz by Brooklyn-based design duo Morning Breath, Hesperian’s Anatomy Cabernet Sauvignon by CF Napa in (duh) Napa, Calif., and the Mollydooker wine series by MASH design in Adelaide, Australia. Art on!

  1. Wine labels are very interesting and most people would be surprised to know the actual percentage of wine that is bought based on the label. I would say it’s more than 70%! I work in a wine shop and people are constantly buying wines based on labels. We are such a superficial species sometimes! Cheers!

  2. Superficial and style-conscious, which is why wine and spirits companies spend so much on good design. Sure, the exterior is moot if the interior doesn’t taste good, but if it is good, who doesn’t want the added bonus of having a conversation piece or potential collector’s item displayed in their home bar? By the way, your wine blog is great, very informative, and making me thirsty for some Zinfandel.
