They say not to judge a book by its cover, but a bottle wine would be a hard sell standing on the shelf undressed. Wine labels do more than just share varietal and vintage. They visually show to consumers the history behind the vineyards, the occasion the bottle should be shared, and even the feelings one might experience as they enjoy the glass. In this series, VinePair shares the stories of the labels emblazoning bottles across the nation.

This Design Behind The Vine series is brought to you by Columbia WineryProphecy Wines, and Chateau Souverain.
