London, 1750. Henry Burmester and John Nash start the brand, marking the beginning of the history of the Burmester wines. Burmester is renowned for its British roots and the quality of its Port and DOC Douro wines sold in more than 30 countries. The wines honour their terroir and give the brand one of its distinctive traits, elegance. Burmester’s individuality and character are the universal principles that define and inspire it.
The Burmester brand refinement and full range packaging design (D.O.C. Wines, Oporto Vintages and Private Selections) were careful and harmoniously designed in order to maintain a classic but sophisticated feature, thus reflecting the brand’s unique and complete character and attitude. M&A Creative Agency developed also the Brand Book and general catalogue.

What’s Unique?
In this project, we had the change to combined different materials in the labels and also in the tubes. The result is absolutely elegant, luxurious and full of character.
