New blog launched – Art on plonk

So the other night, as I was drinking a glass of delicious red wine and looking at the beautiful typography on the bottle I realised that the label on a bottle of wine is so much more than just a label. It serves not only to capture the imagination of the shopper, but also to convey something about the wine. It is art.

And so, with that I present Art on plonk
