Under The Dark Scenario Of Night Sombrio Wine Is Revealed
In the silence of the night, under the moonlight and a starry sky, three grape varieties were harvested – Encruzado, Bical and Cerceal – that gave rise Sombrio, a sublime nectar with specific characteristics of Dão region. M&A Creative Agency’s label design tells this story that is behind. This is a special wine that tried to not having contact with light until bottled which resulted in a thousand bottles.

Harvested at night, what would be the best inspiration if not the moon? The grape berries on the label with black varnish, represent the moon and together form a grape bunch. There’s a different grape berry, standing out by its color, a golden moon. The winemaking process without light avoids oxidation and the dark glass bottle, wrapped in black paper, helps the purpose, allowing the wine only to gets light when served on the glass.
