Codice wine is a stunning mix of debossed and embossed elements that work together to make a label you'll want to read and feel.

Wrapped around each bottle is a page that looks like it was pulled directly from a medieval text. The illustration on the page is an intricate scene of a farmer working his field. It's a design element you'll feel guilty ripping off, until you see the label beneath the wrapper with its gold foil letters that spell out the wine's name.

A codex was the historical ancestor of the modern book, and with this stunning wine design, you'll be instantly transported back in time. 


The Codex wine design is a new take on a classic piece that captures the meaning of a name heavy with meaning. Codices were manuscripts of books before the invention of the printing press, when capital letters were tremendously important and were works of art in themselves. Large capital letters in relief grace the surface of a delicate, sensual label, almost sculpted on paper.
