Branding Moments: The Label Was Stunning, As Was The Wine!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants

In the real estate world of brands, there are  beautiful brands that perform and are true to their message. And then there are those who disappoint!  This true of all business brands in general, some are authentic and some are not.  Here is an example of a wine that had a stunning label, and the wine is memorably delicious.

 

Just before the Christmas holidays, our local Von's had an amazing wine sale!  If you bought 6 bottles of any wine, you would get an additional 33% off with your club card.  We are big fans of Brunello wines.  

 

There were two choices and we chose this one based on the aesthetics.  We loved the color of the label as well as its simplicity.  It turned out that his wine was given a 95 out of a 100 rating by critics.  And the moment we swirled it in our glasses, we knew this was a winner.

 

Here is a brief description of Brunellos from Wikipedia: In Montalcino the name Brunello evolved into the designation of the wine produced with 100% Sangiovese. In 1980, Brunello di Montalcino was awarded the first Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) designation and today is one of Italy's best-known and most expensive wines.  

 

Here are the words, of James Suckling a wine expert:

Wonderful aromas of ginger, plum, lemongrass and ripe berry. Full body and silky tannins with a depth of fruit and a long, long finish. A fantastic wine for the vintage. Can age this, but delicious already. Better than the 2010.

 

We highly recommend this wine, and we are hoping that Von's has a similar sale in the near future.

 

Cheers, Ron & Alexandra

Off the subject, but I was just at my local wine store. They had a wine I love that usually sells for around $40 a bottle. They had a batch that was Kosher blessed and they put it on sale (because the holiday had long passed) for $7.77 a bottle. I had to buy a new wine frig for all the bottles I bought.

Often old world branding believes simplicity is best, along the lines of less is more I guess. Glad it turned out to be as good as you hoped.

I'm guilty of purchasing many different types of things due to great design in packaging.  Sometimes the product is good, sometimes not so much.  Glad this one checked both boxes.

The labels often get me, as I don't know the differences in the wines, so I choose the ones that appeal to me.
