Winking Cottage Pinot Noir Concept

Designed by Eric Krueger, United States.

Labels for my small batch, home winery. Because these labels were for such a small edition (31 bottles), I thought it would be interesting to come up with something that wouldn’t be easily replicated commercially and to explore the shape of the bottle further with a label that wraps around it. Each label is individually torn and numbered and because these are for personal consumption and not for sale I was able to take the liberty of skipping some of the standard information required on US wine labels.

Winking Cottage is the name an Aunt gave the house my wife and I live in, seeing that it has only one dormer on one side of the house (instead of a single dormer in the middle or two dormers).
