Look closely. The designer of this Sancerre label left the place-holding Lorem Ipsum text on the label. Proofreader delight.

Not only is this vineyard close to my home town of Christchurch in New Zealand, their website is wonderfully typographic. <link>

Now all I need to do is get a taste of the wine. Raymond Chan thinks the Chardonnay is pretty good. Here’s his summary.

The Naish family have brought Black Estate to the fore of Waipara wine producers. The output is with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from 4 ha of vines of each variety from the home vineyard, and contracted Riesling fruit from nearby. The Chardonnay is from 15 y.o. Mendoza clone and is deemed to be something special. I concur..

As a further aside, some mighty fine Canterbury rugby players also call Omihi home.

Swanson Vineyards in the Napa offer the opportunity to purchase their wines with a label appropriate to the occasion or moment. Great idea. I’ll bet the “please forgive me” option is a best seller.

“Today’s recommended wines are first and foremost food-friendly. In general, the overall quality of the kosher wine we tasted is better and more consistent than our last look two years ago. Though well-established Israeli brands were generally available, it was tougher to find French, Chilean, Spanish and New Zealand kosher wines this time.”

I didn’t know about the “U”, “K” or “P” labelling protocol. That’s really interesting.

“The label will carry the certifying organization’s symbol, often a circled “U” or “K.” In addition, wines labeled as kosher for Passover also carry a P to the right of the circled symbol.”

Lovely Package has the story. This is the Poor Thing Grenache, there is also an equally impressively labelled Bo Diddley Riesling.

Beautiful label. I’m not familiar with the Chateau or the wine but the label is excellent.  According to Packaging News, “Design Bridge in London has created the identity for Déesse red wine from Chateau D’Esclans. The design was inspired by the chateau’s ancient vines, and combines imagery of deer roaming the surrounding woods and the hunting goddess Diana. Group PR director Rene Lutters said the aim was to create a brand that would stand out from the chateau’s rosé wines and other reds from the region.”

They succeeded. More details on the wine and purchasing here <link>
