The Miracle Machine, which promises to turn water, yeast, grape concentrate, and finishing powder packets into a DIY wine. Just sync the machine up with its corresponding iOS or Android app, mix in the ingredients, and then give it three days. After 72 hours, wine will appear where there was once just water (and those other ingredients). Choose from six varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Chardonnay, Oregon Pinot Noir, a Tuscan blend, Sonoma Sauvignon Blanc, and a red and white from Burgundy. The makers say despite the brand newness of it all, the wine will taste likes it’s been aged to perfection.

Tokaji Wine Bottle by Szabolcs Moldovan


general 01 02 03 05

Take a look at the stunning packaging design for Tokaji wine bottle created by Szabolcs Moldovan, Romania. All elements of the packaging are hand carved by an artist, further giving it value. This would be possible due to the fact that the aim of the product is not mass production. Materials used are wood and metal/precious metals. The wood wine holder symbolizes a cathedral that protects the wine, and even after the wine is consumed, the packaging can be reused as an artwork on a shelf or table, while the label that contains precious metals can be taken off the bottle and hanged on the wall of wine cellars, to further push the idea of reusable packaging, packaging that has value, and should not be thrown away or discarded. With all the work that goes into packaging these days, it is still heartbreaking to see that they end up in the trash.

Engraved Wine Chillers By Joe Doucet

Seeking to create more than just an object, design polymath joe doucet wanted to create a ritual. The series of wine chillers were commissioned by wallpaper for its annual handmade exhibit, and the final products were crafted by Neal Feay Studio in Santa Barbara, California. Placing a chilled bottle of wine inside one of the engraved containers ensures that it remains cool by preventing the loss of cold through convention, conduction and radiation. Based on the wind patterns of cold fronts that move around the globe, the grooved lines on the cases vary in depth as they wrap around the chillers.

Csetvei Winery Hrsz. 737 Wine Label Design


01 02 03

Take a look at the creative packaging design by Kira Koroknai, Budapest. As a starting point, Kira’s goal was to create a minimalistic and eye-catching design which fits to the extant identity of Csetvei Winery. With the black and white pattern, she wanted to reflect on the wine’s characteristic and full-bodied taste. The other aspect of the designing was to create the unity of the label and the bottle. Kira wanted the bottle design to be a part of the treat of drinking wine, that’s why she chose the full bottle design instead of a classic label form. This way, the bottle also becomes a part of enjoying the wine. It creates a personal experience as the drinker holds and turn the bottle around while having a chat.

Blood of Grapes Wine Bottle


03

This creative bottle design was created by Belarusian designer, Constantin Bolimond. His idea is based around the concept of wine as the blood of grapes. The striking form is themed off a human heart to reference the fruit’s origin – France. The product is realized in black and white finishes, featuring a simple inverse typeface to communicate the wine’s label. The design brings a new meaning to the devil’s nectar.

Stranger & Stranger Wine Packaging


Stranger & Stranger wine packaging delivers character and creative flair in a new series of wine label designs. These decorative paper sleeves wrap around wine bottles in a fashion inspired by prohibition-era packaging. Various ornate sleeves display a broad range of subjects spanning from quotes to recipes to vintage-style artwork. Unique packaging serves as a teaser for the consumer and lures them in to investigate what kind of wine is in the bottle beneath. Inspiration for Stranger & Stranger wrapping comes from Truett Hurst’s No.13 wine. Each package maintains a distinct and elegant design which inevitably catches a second-glance from fine wine shoppers.

The Tondonia Winery Pavillion.


The Rafael López de Heredia Tondonia Winery is one of the oldest and more famous winery in the Spanish region of La Rioja. To celebrate their 125th anniversary they decided to rehabilitate a very old store that the winery founder took to Brussel’s World Fair in 1910 and had been disassembled ever since.

In 2002 current owners (direct descendants of the founder), discovered how beautiful the old store was and decided to built an exterior volume to house the old store. This would become the future wine store and a place where visitors could taste the great wines they produce. This pavillion is only part of all the project that will include three more tasting rooms and a cleaning room. More images and architect’s description after the break.

The adage that from small beginnings many things may grow applies well to this project. The client, famous family bodegas of Rioja came to us with the intention of designing a pavilion to contain an older pavilion. The old pavilion had been found in their outhouses and restored to its original condition. It had been originally commissioned by the great grandfather for the world fair exhibition in 1910. The proprietors of the bodegas had a long succession of adding their built presence to the tradition of the bodegas.

The new pavilion was to be exhibited at the Alimentaria Fair in Barcelona and afterwards relocated to the bodegas at Haro in Rioja. In time the pavilion would be superseded by a new extension of cultural buildings. As such it was a stepping-stone,a bridge between the past,present and future development of the bodegas. For us the starting point was to jump into the future to determine how the present would evolve. We began this project by a series of studies exploring how the bodegas could evolve. Working backwards from these studies the pavilion began to emerge in tandem.

The pavilion would house the past the old pavilion. Made from timber and designed in a fin de scele style the old pavilion became a jewel within a new container. Like a series of Russian dolls the new pavilion itself was to be eventually housed within the new extension at the bodegas. The new pavilion would be just one layer in a larger composition.
