About the Label

Our labels are produced in partnership between Lívia Novais and the artist Wendel Reis. Together they seek to read the message from the inside of the bottle to the outside. For the Summer Wine label the idea came up on a trip to the beach, a feeling of freedom and pleasure from the Portuguese summer!

The Summer wine label was born in a very fun discussion between me and Wendel, we wanted to do something new and innovative, this way we created a label in motion that can be seen in an augmented reality, designed and thought out in detail by our artist and even the music was composed to give this air of beach and freedom with a touch of 70s and surf, that image arouses a desire to drop everything, pick up the bottle and go to the sea, one of the most creative and fun labels we have createdLívia Novais

Augmented Reality !!!

Finally, in 2017 we made the first augmented reality in wine labels in Europe, an animation that preserves the traits of Wendel and the movement and joy of this label that has become one of our favorites.
