Creating a label

We’re almost there!  Our first wine, our first label.   In the background, there is the outline of a vine ball made by John, one of the many indespensible people who have helped us with our winemaking dreams.  Design of the label and logo by Kyle McGuire.

I didn’t fully appreciate how detail-oriented you have to be to make a wine label until I tried to make one myself.  Even with the help of a talented graphic designer like Kyle, it took several renditions before everyone was happy with it and it satisfied expectations from us, the Feds and VQA requirements.

  1. Hey Tim, I love the colours on the label, esp the bold red announcing the grape!!

    • Thanks David, we wanted a label/logo that has impact and at the same time pragmatic and down to earth. We wanted classy but contemporary. I think Kyle nailed it. Now to start filling the bottles with delicious wine!

  2. Hey Tim, love the label. Especially the canes in the background. When is your official opening date so we can drop by.

      Kind regards,
