Wine labels

I have been agonizing what kind of labels I want for the wine we made earlier on the fall. For some reason I wanted to have something cool, but I still so far have not figured out what is that cool label I want. I had promissed to give some wine and cider to my colleague who we got the sweet apples from to make the wine and cider. I had been avoiding taking the bottles to him, because I had wanted to label the bottles first. But on sunday I decided he has waited too long and then just grabed a white marker and wrote straight on the bottle its content.



And I think those turned out really cool, so I decided to label all bottles like this. I really like them.

  3. I like the simplicity of just writing on the bottle directly!

  4. Hi Leena! I think your solution is quite practical and good looking. And I'm sure your colleague will enjoy your work!

    1. Hope he will, I gave them to him on Monday and he asked if he should pay me something from the wine and cider(!), and I thought it was too little that I gave him. He did give us half of the apples anyhow!

  5. Hey there,

    I canned some tomato sauce and used labels from here: http://blog.worldlabel.com/free-printable-labels-gallery with a font from here: http://www.dafont.com/

    In the end I'm not happy with my choice, as I picked one too small and more appropriate for a tag adjoined to a garment rather a glass jar of food, but I'll keep trying. The whole experience was really cool!!!

  6. They look great! Can the writing be erased from the bottle if they want to reuse the bottles and fill them with something else? If not, you have to give them some of your good wine every year :)

    1. I used a permanent marker, of course it can be removed with some solvent, but not very easily I think.
      We've noticed that the tree bears fruit only every third year, so next year the wine supply might be bit low...
