4.5 cases bottled about a month ago. Finally got around to labels and foils today.
Nice label, really nice label. I like it a lot. So many of you guys are making Professional Winery Grade Labels.
Great site. I look for artwork on line, then fill in the blanks. Easy, peasy.
Will bookmark and take a look at it.
That is a great site! The labels there look terrific and they have a lot of options! Thanks for sharing.
Jim, Those are cool labels. I also noticed that your fruit is from Suisun Valley. How did it turn out? I made Sangiovese from Suisun Valley fruit last year. How did you get your fruit? Thanks.
They are Lanza grapes. I've been using them for a few years and have been pretty happy with the results. Good fruit. I was buying from Harford Vineyard and Winery in MD, but they recently decided to stop selling grapes and juice. So now I'm searching for a new supplier.
I see. Musto sells Lanza fruit, but they're in Connecticut. http://www.juicegrape.com/
I generally prefer not name them (I've named probably 4), but when I do. It's usually because something about it gave rise to the name. Sometimes it's the wine, sometimes it's something that happen or a thought while working with the wine.
Rebecca'a Dance (Dragon's blood) - Named as a gift for my GF's daughter who had just had a great dance recital.
73 - (Viognier) - One of my two favorite white wines (other being Chenin Blanc) Combination year of my birth and one of my other hobbies (ham radio)
Overture (Chilean Cabernet) - My first Cabernet (Lodi, CA) turned out really good and gets rave reviews. When I was ready to bottle this one, I felt it was even better. It reminded me of some of my favorite overtures due to it's complexity even at such a young age. I think this one is going to be really good in another year or a few.
Summer Time Fun - (Pineapple, Mango, Lime wine) - Because it reminds me of a drink for a summer on a beach, and Beach Fun didn't sound right.
All the rest are just the year and the wine fruit.
Can anyone tell me what format(s) can be used to successfully upload?
For a friend’s sisters wedding Saturday. They wanted simple.
Waiting to be put on my bottles...
Hey Danno. I use Stoney Creek and just upload a jpg file in cases where I need to add a pic. They have a lot of templates - many of which you can just change the words and go.
This year’s lineup. Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo and Chardonnay
