Weingut Metzger – “Funky Labels” und gelungene Weine!

Das Auge trinkt mit, denke ich manchmal. Und dabei beziehe ich mich meistens nicht auf die Farbe des Weins, sondern auf die Gestaltung des Etiketts. Das klingt jetzt vielleicht dilettantisch, vor allem in den Ohren der Weinsnobs, doch wenn ich ohne Informationen die Wahl zwischen 2 scheinbar gleichwertigen Flaschen habe, dann wähle ich – wie […]

Funky Labels: Phillip Heinz, a Newcomer with bright ideas!

Always refreshing to see newcomers with not only solid wines, but also with fresh ideas for marketing and packaging. Phillip Heinz, aged 23, took over the  family vineyards in the Pfalz region (in the Southern part, quite close to the French border) and bottled his first own wine with the 2009 vintage.

Funky Labels: “Petite Petit”, Michael David Winery, California

Again one from the colorful US shelves. The intriguing name “Petite Petit” is actually a wink to the wine’s blend composed of Petite Syrah and Petit Verdot. I like the humor in it and I wonder how “big” the wine actually tastes… See more funky labels wines.

Funky Labels: Three Thieves “The Show” Malbec, Mendoza

As wines have to be marketed more as brands in the US than in Europe, there are numerous colorful and funky labels to be found on the shelves. I spotted this one at a Whole Foods Store in Fort Lauderdale. Is it suggesting a funky rodeo-style Malbec? At least it reminds me that I have […]

Funky Labels: Wild Thing Riesling, Rheingau

Wild Thing, you make my heart sing. But this one is definitely also one for the eye. Winemaker Anthony Hammond, who is a buyer of grapes in Oestrich-Winkel, Rheingau, has always shown a weakness for original and catchy packaging. Just check his online-shop.

Funky Labels: Matys Sauvignon Blanc, SA

Sometimes, many times actually, I am just a taker of nice labels like the next guy. Apparent creativity just makes me curious. And since I dig graffiti art as well, be it the oldschool stuff or the latest developments, I couldn’t resist when I saw this beautiful bottle in the shelves of a Stellenbosch wine […]

Funky Labels: 12 Volts from Bodega 4 Kilos, Mallorca

Always loved this label from Bodega 4 Kilos. It is a winery on the Spanish Island Mallorca which makes wines mostly from autochton varieties. This wine in particular, 12 Volts, comprises only 20% of the local variety Callet, the rest being Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet. I remember it was a great wine but forgot to […]

Funky Wine Layouts: Charles Smith Wines

I have a thing for neat wine labels. I even admit here and now that they often play a much bigger role for me than the actual color of the wine. My brains logic: a cool label has been made by a cool guy from a cool winery and a cool guy can only make […]

2007 Winepunk Nero, IGT Veneto, Casa Vinicola Winepunk!

Winepunk! Nero. Eine Flasche die mit ihrem coolen roten Etikett mit Totenkopf-Logo fast in unsere “funky labels” Rubrik gehört. Dazu noch ein Pogo for your tongue-Versprechen und ein stilvoller Schraubverschluss welcher den letzten Schliff verleiht und den Punk gar salonfähig macht. Das hat schon was.

Naughty, Naughty Girl!

Just wondering what the marketing guys thought when they launched this brand. Is the strategy based on the presumption that anyone likes a naughty girl? Well, as I said in a previous posting, I’m a taker of funky labels but I didn’t buy that one. Seen in a wineshop in Stellenbosch.
