“The name of this white wine, Turonet (“hill” in Catalan) refers to the physical space where the cellar is at the Mas Can Colomé Estate. The label design has been thought to be tagged and numbered by hand to transmit the values of craftsmanship associated with this small family winery. We have replaced the cap with an original pin and added a seal as a symbol of quality. This elegant presentation is complemented with the individual case and the special bottle, engraved with the name of the winery.”

An innovative initiative has seen the SA wine industry pull together for a very worthy cause: that of providing homes for children with severe learning disabilities.
Initiated in May 2006 by Peter Shrimpton and Rikus Nieuwenhuis in collaboration with the Lorraine Forbes Foundation, Charity Wines provides donated surplus wines to companies, individuals and retail partners in return for their ongoing commitment to support the children’s homes.
Peter and Rikus began by securing support from the CEOs of the industry governing bodies, before approaching producers of fine South African wines. The reaction was phenomenal, with most players wondering why this had never been done before.
Logistics were soon arranged via the Vineyard Connection, who readily committed to provide collection and distribution. The first sizeable contribution was offered by Nederburg via Distell; with Jean Engelbrecht noted for his help in kicking off.
The liquor license was promptly arranged by Cluver Markotter Attorneys, and approved by the Western Cape Liquor Board within 6 months.
Attractive and modern packaging was supplied by Mondi Pak in conjunction with Africa Stereos and Laser Die, all of whom made the arrangements under the auspices of Corporate Social Responsibility. A six-month commitment by KWV to cover operating costs, and a generous contribution to the Charity Wine stock verifies their company motto; ‘together we create winning brands’; and saw the project well on its way to reality.
The contributions continue, and Charity Wines is soon to make its mark on solving the housing problems of learning-disabled children. Congratulations to Peter and Rikus on seeing the project through; and to the industry as a whole for pulling the stops to realize a shared dream.
Designed by Jordan Jelev, this new wine label is part of the ALL in ONE wines range. This is also the first white wine - Chardonnay - under this brand name. “I wanted the label to look exactly the same like its ancestor, but to make a few changes that will apply properly to the wine inside. I used the combination of gold background and silver lines - that was really a hard decision because this in most of the cases is a dangerous combination”.
“I also wanted to dominate the gold background because this is barrel aged wine…. Our partners from Dragomir Winery Estate also suggested to change the colour of the bottle glass to more brown smoky one which improved the look of the whole product”.
Vineland Estates is an Canadian company situated in the Niagara Peninsula of Ontario. Last year Insight Design agency was asked to refine evolving their iconic label.
"The goal of this package was to express confidence, quality and timeless relevance within quiet ease — to reflect the way Vineland makes their wine and has offered one of the most inspiring estate wine experiences for over 30 years".
