My wife is in charge of the labels, and I told her she can do whatever she wants. She even came up with the name. Anyways, I thought they turned out pretty good.

I told her that beaujolais labels are often very colorful, and she ran with that. She scans from her sketch book to get started.

Tell your wife that she has a good eye for labels. What did she use to make them?

She actually draws in her sketch book using pastels I think, and then scans them into paint.net where she finishes them.

The second label is for my passion fruit-red grape concentrate wine. Chatelaine means "Wife of the lord of the castle". Since I told her that this wine is for her, I think she decided to call it that.

Thanks, I'll pass the praise along to her. I wish I could paint or draw as well. Now I just have to make wine worthy of the labels!

Those are beautiful. I would take notice them on a shelf in a store.
