My wife is getting into label making. The way I see it, I make the wine, so she can at least make the labels. Last week I racked the 2020 port (I know, I'm not in Portugal), and saved a gallon for bottling. Here's my wife's label in honor of our vineyard protector who passed a couple of months ago at 15.

This is my label killer. Just a razor blade with a handle. Makes quick work wet or dry. Just need to deal with the glue. I found cooking oil (any) and baking soda with a stainless scrubber stripped all the labels I went at it with very easily. A little dish soap and a rinse and it was done. Not even a little bit painful.

I've read sticking them on with glue sticks makes homemade labels slide right off in hot water. I'll give it a try.



I like to personalize things and add my own touch. We'll see in 10 years, but for now its label mania!View attachment 89330
Vinny I like that scraper. Post a link pls.
I use homemade labels on the inkjet too and spray the sheets of labels with a waterproofing material very lightly. Apply with a glue stick on the bottle AND comes off very easily. I only label a portion of the batch saving those for gifts. For home use just a simple address label with name, year, ABV

Few new label designs I’m working on for some new wine aging.

Labeled and waxed the 2022 Port I started on New Years Day this year. Made from Zinfandel frozen must, fortified with brandy at 5 brix (approx. 1.020 gravity). Aged in a small format oak barrel for 8 months.

These turned out nice... I'll tuck them away for about 5 years before I open the first bottle...
