“Whenever we think about the life of a wine, we have to think about its death” begins Wilco the winemaker from Dry River Wines Martinborough. If, as a consumer you’re not that familiar with Dry River, it’s the ‘cult’ wine that’s difficult to get hold of unless you are fortunate enough to find a bottle in one of the lucky national or international stores that stocks it, or you are on their direct mailing list.

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
