Wine Labels as Art

Saturday, November 27th, 2010

Thank you  Tyrrell’s wineMirvac and  Sebel Heritage

 

 

“Outlook View”
Thinking of my home when I was in Europe.
This is the digital art print created from a
section of one of my original oil paintings for a wine label

 

 

 

Last night I attended a cocktail evening at the Sebel Heritage in the Yarra Valley. The whole idea of the evening was to introduce exhibiting artists to the new manager to chat about the current Yarra Valley Arts exhibition displayed at the resort.What a nice surprise I had when they announced my painting “Outlook View” was the winning entry for the Tyrrell’s Wine label competition. I was so excited, especially as I’d forgotten I entered the competition.

 

 

As an artist I love the idea that my art will travel, “Nomad Art” on a wine bottle.

Why should art be only framed on a gallery wall?

Although I didn’t get paid in money for my design I couldn’t think of a better marketing tool for getting my art seen and tasted:). The exposure for my art will be extensive, especially as Tyrrell’s wine is sold widely in Australia and exported all over the world. I was also presented with the new wine label beautifully framed, a gift card from Mirvac hotels & resorts and the most beautiful bunch of flowers. In the future I may even receive a case of the wine with my artwork.

Winning the competition also got me thinking a lot about the art on a wine label…

I know, when I buy a bottle of wine, I choose it primarily for its label. If the label is dull and boring visually, I won’t buy it. I also think the design of a wine label could make or break a new wine introduced to the market.

Do you choose a wine by the label?
