vintage dates are always denoted on the bottles, but how many of us really understand the meaning of the year the grapes were harvested. it actually witnesses the natural conditions in which the wine matured; it is its own biography. but with the use of pesticides and balancing flavors, the year shown on the bottle has eventually lost its meaning, flavors are becoming ready-made and unrelated to the actual weather conditions.

the label, as a reflection of the year during which the wine was made

 

 

to create a label for this natural wine, studio sonda decided to raise awareness about the importance of understanding the year indicated on it. in cooperation with the croatian meteorological service, the data on weather conditions in the territory of vineyards were collected, and the amount of precipitation proved to be a great tool to show graphically how much weather actually affects the diversity of nature every year. circles, as standard meteorological rain symbols, show the amount of rainfall in a particular month. this label passes on what was the year like, so that we can easily compare the different vintage years. in such a way wine, as one of the historically most acclaimed product, becomes a medium that speaks out about the importance of understanding nature.

  • Way too complicated for the end user (wine drinker) to get. Cool tactical idea, but sometimes the tactical ideas don’t work realistically speaking. Gimmicks only travel so far..
