This is a limited Anniversary Edition wine for Inkerman winery established in 1961. The goal and idea behind the project were to celebrate the history and the heritage of the winery and to rejuvenate packaging for the brand’s premium products.
The inspiration came from the beauty of the age rings of oaks and old wine barrels which are both very connected. This metaphor immediately connects all the elements needed to produce outstanding wines – oak, barrels, and age. The age rings are painted gold and embossed to celebrate this beauty.
We also were very much inspired by the works of Bryan Nash Gill, who used the wood yearly rings as a source for his amazing art.
The embossing really adds a tactile quality to the label.
