Check out winning labels from past annual competitions! The best homemade labels for homemade wine.
I love hearing from readers. Through letters, phone calls, e-mail and reader surveys, the opinions and insights of our WineMaker subscribers never fail to educate and entertain. And there’s nothing more entertaining — nothing that provides a more fascinating peek into the winemaking minds of our readers — than the hundreds of homemade labels that arrived in our office this fall.
After crawling our way out of the large piles of boxes, envelopes and packages that have been collecting on the floor of the editorial department for the past two months, we managed to get to the other side of the office and recruit some co-workers judging the label contest. The boxes were ripped, the envelopes opened and the bottles were displayed under the bright lights of the judging table. The multiple personalities of our small office converged and began the battle of aesthetic opinions. Let\\\'s see, the publisher, all business, the ad salesman, you might think would be all business but has a soft spot for poetry and - as it turns out - flowers, the art director, well, use your imagination, and the two editors, editor one and editor two, we\\\'re all about convincing copy and catchy names. All in all, the scales were pretty well balanced.
