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
