How to Make Your Own Wine Label

Part of the fun of making your own wine is getting to personalize the wine bottles. But if you’re anything like me and your talent lies more in drinking wine than graphic design, Wine Folly has some great tips on making your own wine labels.

Wine Folly suggests mimicking commercial brand labels. Don’t copy them, but use them as inspiration. Think about the classic designs or the newer, cheeky wine labels. You might go for something old fashioned or modern. Don’t forget the basic information all wine labels should have:  the name and date of the wine, the “brand,” the actual variety or blend of the wine, and credit to the actual winery, wine and vintage.

July’s Wine of the Month: Blueberry Pinot Noir

July’s Wine of the Month: Blueberry Pinot Noir

pinotblueberryPinot, our mascot, has a particularly fine taste in wine, and selected the July featured wine, Blueberry Pinot Noir.

This is our sweet version of the blueberry wine, and the tangy, sweet burst of fruit combines with the light-medium body and cherry spice of Pinot Noir. It harmonizes well with Brie cheese.

Buy one bottle, get the second bottle half off for the entire month of July.

May’s Wine of the Month: Fresh Blueberry

fresh blueIt finally feels like Spring and what better way to celebrate than with sweet, fresh blueberries?

The May Wine of the Month is our Fresh Blueberry wine, made with blueberries picked locally in CNY. It’s an off dry, semi-sweet wine absolutely perfect for brunches instead of the usual mimosa, or as an after dinner sweet to cleanse the palette.

This wine is delicious mixed with lemonade too.

All this month, buy one, get one half-off.
