An assortment of wine labels
Emily and Drew named their company Trail Marker Wine Company. Trail markers or “blazes” are graphic emblems used to mark the direction of the path so people don’t get lost in the wilderness, and end up in a bad way. Lets face it, with all the wine in the market, it’s easy to get lost and end up with a bad bottle. They wanted a mark that was emblematic and a label that could been seen from a distance amongst all the other labels on a shelf. No matter where you go, look for a Trail Maker from Emily and Drew. Their delicious wines are high acid, low alcohol and will keep you in a good way.
When Anthony Filiberti called us about creating a label for a new project he was working on, he had a vision. He wanted a label that expressed the nature of the vineyards he was farming — meticulously cultivated and tremendously influenced by the coastal climate of the geography. We created magical botanicals. Upon close inspection, you’ll notice the buds are sea creatures. Oh, and if you think the labels are beautiful, you should try his wines.
Dan O’Brien takes making wine personally. He started this family business as a labor of love to honor his mother, Gail. He’s a sommelier and winemaker and a persnickety East-coaster with an exquisite palate. His wines are a work of art — fermented in small lots using ambient, native yeasts then aged sur-lie in seasoned French oak barrels with minimal movement or manipulation. Each is bottled unfiltered and then hand-numbered. We hand painted a minimalist label for an equally exquisite honor to Gail.
Comptche Ridge Vineyard sits on a natural clearing atop a mountain just inland from the northern Mendocino County coast. Originally homesteaded in the 1800’s by Finnish immigrants, and then purchased by the Weir brothers in the 1990’s, it is surrounded completely by towering Redwoods and Douglas-firs. We photographed wood from fallen trees on the land to make the label as expressive of the terroir as the wine.
