It was such a pleasure to design wine labels for Simon Groves and Amanda Ra, owners of Terroir Wines. These two beautiful labels wrap around their completely stunning wine that is attracting a lot of good attention. BDX 2011 has been rated 2nd (equal with Atarangi’s Celebre) in a NZ ‘blended red wine’ tasting by Master of Wine Bob Campbell.
“An equal blend of CS, CF and Merlot. Aged for 18 months in Hungarian and French barriques. The wine derives aroma from Cabernet Franc, structure from Cabernet Sauvignon and rich, berry and plum fruitiness from Merlot. Elegant, powerful red with good cellaring potential.” Bob Campbell MW 93/100 Five Stars.
BDX 2010 and BDX 2011 are available direct from Terroir Wines. Their website and Facebook page are food for your soul, they showcase their wonderful wines, lifestyle, poetry and beautiful photography and are well worth a visit.
Wine label designs.
Simon and Amanda from Terroir Wines, who own and run the fabulous Martinborough Wine Centre in the heart of Martinborough’s Wine Village are awesome promotors and supporters of independent producers. Their business is a wonderful gathering place of a huge range of products from local vineyards and olive groves.
They are really busy people, so they commissioned us to design their logo, redesign their range of Village Square Wines and to design wine labels for their new range – Stampede and Melody. Meetings with these two was fun – a lot of talking, a lot of tasting and a lot of laughing, all of which helped the wine label designs and the interesting stories on the back labels, come to life. It was a dream job that ran incredibly smoothly from conception to printing and we think we nailed the brief and delivered some nice people some very nice work.
Pop into the store at 6 Kitchener St and see the window display (including bunting flags also made by us) and taste the range because it’s lovely and it’s their wine of the month.
Store hours: open 7 days, 10.00 a.m. – 5.00 p.m & extended to 6pm some evenings for winemaker tastings
