It’s been said for ages — making wine is a balance of science and art. Today, however, we’re going to focus on art. That is, the art that wraps our precious bottles of wine.
Home winemakers were able to pick up new hobbies as they found themselves with additional downtime at home in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. And, if the number of entries WineMaker received in our annual label contest (particularly from first-time entrants) was any indication, saying that many chose to start designing labels to decorate the bottles of their homemade wines is not an exaggeration. The staff at WineMaker gathered from the safe distance of their remote offices for online voting this year and after some friendly debate came up with our favorite labels of 2021. We hope you enjoy viewing the winning labels as much as we did in selecting them. If you didn’t receive a prize this year, just keep in mind that there are only 12 months left to design the next great label!
We want to give a big thank you to our sponsors who help keep this annual competition going. Lastly, thank you to the home winemakers who continue to impress us with their abilities year after year.
