2018’s Drinks Business Awards: profiling the recipients

Best Design & Packaging in Wine


Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino by Stranger & Stranger

Our judges fell in love with this quirky wine label, which they described as “iconic” and “its own work of art”. They loved its 360-degree design that wraps around the label and the clever storytelling of the Catena wine dynasty.

“It’s a great bottle to enjoy if you’re drinking alone as there is so much detail on the label,” said one judge, while another said, “The design is so striking it makes you want to pick it up. It’s a great wine to take to a dinner party as it will be a beautiful part of the furniture.”

Special Commendation

Le Nez Moments range by M.P. Wines

Les Nez Moments range by M.P. Wines was highly commended for its modern design, sense of humour an engaging storytelling that celebrates life’s simple pleasures, which our judges believed will be a hit with the Instagram generation. Seeking to “challenge traditional wine expectations” the range, a collaboration between Bodegas Salentein in Argentina and Languedoc-based Domaine Gayda, comprises a Grenache rosé, Syrah and Viognier.
