BDX 2 pack layers rev2
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.

Terroir Wines 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.

Vintage Treasure in Martinborough.

Rebrand for Vintage Treasure in Martinborough
Rebrand for Vintage Treasure in Martinborough by Wolfies.

When you want the whole hog, we are the people to see! This is the rebrand for Daphne Geisler’s shop – Vintage Treasure in Martinborough.

Nowadays it’s an online shop packed full of treasure, nostalgia and sentiment, with not a speck of dust in sight. If you adore antiques and collectables, are a craft maker and lover of kitchenalia, china, Crown Lynn, crystal and glass, linen, sewing, silverware, all things blue and white, retro and vintage, you will love it.

Book Illustrations.

With the launch and the great media coverage this week of Leanne’s book Fairytale Love – How to Love Happily Ever After (Greg designed the cover and graphic inclusions) we realised that we hadn’t actually posted a blog on the fabulous illustrations that Random House commissioned Greg Keith to do for Jared Gulian’s book Moon Over Martinborough – How an American City Boy Became a Kiwi Farmer, published last year.

Jared has had fabulous success with his book full of heart-warming stories about olives, neighbours, friendships and farm animals. They make you laugh and cry and want to live in the country on an olive grove. You will also have to spot the stories about us, aka Leelee and Wolfie.

UPDATE. Jared’s book is now called “An Olive Grove at the Edge of the World.” Available https://www.jaredgulian.com/an-olive-grove-at-the-edge-of-the-world/
