The Label Makers, designers and manufacturers of self-adhesive labels, have worked with Halfpenny Green Wine Estate, to produce a new look sustainable label for their oak-aged Solaris wine, part of their premium range.

The design, which marks a natural evolution of the key feature of a signature coin on the label, a trademark of all wines produced by the estate, is due to be rolled out across the other premium range bottles within the next month, with plans to extend this to the entire range.

Crafted using uncoated white matt wood free printing paper with a felt-marked finish is designed to withstand challenging conditions with its wet strength and fungicidal treatment, ensuring the labels remain pristine even in wet environments like ice buckets. Additionally, the laminate contains 70% post-consumer recycled content (PCR), reinforcing The Label Makers’ and their customers’ commitment to sustainability.

The new labels feature printing techniques including full-colour digital print, intricate lines, foils, embossing, high-build spot varnish and spot flexo on the coin detail and colours, ensuring remarkable standout appeal.

‘As far as we are concerned, The Label Makers have been the ‘go-to’ in the industry for beverage labels since August 2017, when we started working with them,’ said Julian Sollom, head of sales at Halfpenny Green Wine Estate.

‘They really understand drinks labels, producing consistently high-quality products, such as scuff-resistant labels that maintain their integrity in shipping and in ice buckets. Our long-standing relationship has seen them consistently produce premium labels perfectly tailored for their intended purpose.’

Dan Wilson, business development manager at The Label Makers, said, ‘Clear communication between ourselves and the client throughout the project was key to ensuring that the brief was followed to the letter, so we could extract as much as possible from the design details. Having established a great working relationship with the estate, we are proud to have been part of this project and their ongoing success.’
