Even though much energy is put into creating a fine bottle of wine; typically, little effort is ever considered when thinking about the wine bottle label. Whether you are a commercial winery or a home bottler, you have dedicated your time and knowledge to mixing the ideal grapes to create the perfect wine.

You have followed the process correctly, allowed the product to age under ideal conditions, and finally, it is ready for bottling. All that is left to do is fill the bottles with wine, attached the labels, box them, and deliver the car tons to the store for retail sales and your profits.

Labels and Environmental Conditions

However, with the tens of thousands of wines available in the marketplace, what marketing strategies can you use to differentiate your wine from all the others? Aside from standing next to your product handing out samples, the only real option that is left is to create a unique label sure to attract the consumer’s eye.

And just like the quality of the wine that is contained within your bottles, so to should the label be created with the same care, from high-quality stock using only the finest inks available. This will ensure it can withstand the environmental conditions the wine bottle will have to endure.

The label printing stock, and the ink must survive the elements of being blasted with sunlight, left in the hot or cold, and kept wet without slipping, falling off or fading. Professional companies specializing in wine labels in Melbourne constantly test their products to guarantee their inks will not fade, and their glues will not fail.

Wine as a Social Status

If we believe, by the label, it is an expensive bottle of wine, even if that is not so, we tend to enjoy it more, and think the gift more thoughtful.
