wine labels are a lot like bookcovers—neither can tell you the quality of what's inside the book or bottle. and i'm always attracted to the coolest-looking ones. here are some wine labels that i've noticed lately. all of them have a sort of relief-print aspect to them, which appeals to the printmaker in me, and is probably why they catch my eye.

big house wine. i always enjoy a label that seems to tell a bit of a story.

wrongo dongo... a bottle whose label i love yet whose wine i will pass over....

and gnarly head, which is two for two. mmm.
