It’s wine harvest season, which means it’s a perfect time for wine-lovers to indulge in 2022’s new wine selections. Going back 500 years, the Egyptians branded their wine by writing hieroglyphs on papyrus, an early type of paper, and used honey as a natural adhesive. These wine labels were precise and practical. Usually displayed was the year the wine was produced, its region of origin, as well as the quantity, style, and quality of the wine contained inside. A person who is not knowledgeable about wine and wants to experiment will rely heavily on its label. What is the wine made from? Where is it made? 

Here is what is needed to make the most of wine labels in 2022:

The name should be simple to identify since that is what typically sticks out first on wine labels. They may be written in a romantic typeface or a more sophisticated one. The crucial point is that they reveal the brand's essence through its distinctive designs.

Origin of Wine
The location name of the natural environment that gave the wine its life should be included on wine labels. This is because certain wine-producing areas have long captivated international taste and earned their quality stamp in the wine world. From France, Italy, Argentina, and New Zealand to South Africa, wine history in these countries should be appreciated and displayed.  

What are the ingredients used for the wine? From alcohol percentage to ingredient facts, this is important to have on your wine for full transparency and details. What grapes is the wine made of? From Port Wine, Strawberry, Syrah (Shiraz), Merlot, Malbec, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and pinot noir, these all differ in taste and should be displayed on your label through clear visuals or text.

Year Harvested
The work of nature is essential and that is why the natural conditions in which the wine was harvested have a lot to do with the taste, and character the wine will have. 

Get creative. What colors, font and overall aesthetic best fits your wine? Combining all the previous elements, make the design yours! The wine's flavor and taste profile can be understood from the color scheme chosen. Red, for instance, is frequently connected to fruity aromas, while yellow is associated with citrus or tropical, “lighter” undertones.
