KEUKA LAKE CATAWBA GRAPES, Three bunches of red, deep purple and light green grapes appear ready to burst from their skin and jump into the wine vat. Andrew Mackay and Co., Penn Yan, New York once used this fine and rare old label to brand baskets & boxes of fruit. We have custom framed this old grape crate label in copper and glass so it is ready to hang in your kitchen or winery. Measures 10 1/2" x 4 3/4". • Since Fruit Crate Labels derive from the concept of Wine Bottle Labeling in the late 1800’s I’ve included here the titles of a few tomes on the small colorful wine labels. • A Very Good Year: The Journey of a California Wine from Vine to Table by Mike Weiss • The Emperor of Wine: The Rise of Robert M. Parker, Jr. and the Reign of American Taste by Elin McCoy • Understanding Wine Labels: A Complete Guide to the Wine Labels of the World (Mitchell Beazley Wine Made Easy) by Simon Woods • Spinning the Bottle by Harvey Posert • Wine Label Language by Peter Saunders • Soils for Fine Wines by Robert E. White • Imagery: Art for Wine by Bob L. Nugent “The wine label is a powerful icon of modern civilization. It is a precious object of art that symbolizes and disseminates the cultural and spiritual values of the land where wine is grown…Wine label design has undergone a renaissance where art meets marketing in the most powerful way, penetrating the subconscious, utilizing the power of suggestion to imply flavor and quality.” Icon: Art of the Wine Label by Jeffrey Caldeway and Chuck House, May 2003
