You don’t have to visit a museum to view great art. There’s plenty to be found at your local wine shop. Here are just a few examples of fine art on wine labels from around the world.
Zena Crown Vineyard, Willamette Valley, Oregon. The striking photography and design for Zena Crown’s Pinot Noir received a 2016 Graphic Design USA American Inhouse Design Award. The label captures a feeling of freedom and beauty, via the juxtaposition of contemporary photos with an overlay of technical details. Its aim is to portray an authentic view of Oregon.
Botanica Mary Delany Chenin Blanc 2015, Stellenbosch, South Africa. British artist Mary Delany created this label’s vibrant and lifelike floral collages during the late 18th century. Her collages were crafted from hundreds of tiny pieces of cut paper. Botanica’s Mary Delany collection is an homage to the artist’s love of nature and dedication to her craft.
