12 Wild Wine Label Design Samples

Inspiration August 25, 2008

A wine store is a paradise for any graphic designer seeking inspiration. Most wine stores have thousands of bottles of wine, all of which are uniquely branded with a wine label. You could spend an entire weekend examining all the different wine label designs in a wine store and still not view them all.

The wine industry is massive and branding is extremely important to wine companies whom spend many thousands of dollars branding their wines. They all market to a certain audience and the designs must convey their message properly. After recently visiting a wine a local wine store, I was inspired to put together this wine label inspiration post, with the hopes of shedding some light on some of the spectacular custom labels graphic designers are creating in this industry.

One of the best parts of being a graphic designer is seeing your work actually printed and in use and I can imagine seeing your label design printed on hundreds of thousands of wine bottles sold world-wide would be a pretty exciting experience!

    I make my own wine and I think I’m going to design my own labels to go on them after reading this!

    For another cool label/design check out the Caliza WInery stuff. It’s like disheveled meets classy. Kind of a sexyness to it.

    I don’t get it. Most of these are fairly tame and traditional. The Tipsy is a little out there but the Kraal, LaRoca, Cavallo, and Reggina are just dull.

    I design wine labels in Washington. The labels here show a LOT more “wildness” than these.
