DIELINE AWARD WINNERS REVEALED

Garalis Limnio & Muscat Wines Are Bringing A Luxe Finish To A Simple Design

by Chloe Gordon on 07/05/2021 | 2 Minute Read

Minimalistic wine labels often jump out at me when I'm perusing the countless bottles amongst the shelves. In my opinion, when a label is pure and simple, the bottle doesn't have to prove how good the wine within is. Limnio and Muscat of Alexandria are two wines from the same vineyard with elegantly simple labels.

The gold foiling makes the shapes pop and gives them a luxe finish. Manos Siganos Design Studio clearly has an eye for design, and I know for a fact that if I saw these bottles within a sea of others, my eye would land on them in an instant.

Lemnos, an island renowned since antiquity for its viticulture, has until today, managed to produce wines of exceptional quality with its varieties, firstly “Limnio” and later “Muscat of Alexandria”.

The privately owned Garalis winery, situated in the heart of the largest wine growing zone, produces and bottles these two premium varieties of wine. The idea behind the packaging design of “Muscat” white wine comes from the distinctive features of Lemnos with its low vines that are lashed by northeasterly gales. The colour gold was chosen for the grapes and the wind to emphasize their value and to stress the necessity of the combination of both.

The design concept of Limnio red wine was based on the shape of the typical traditional “gouves” of Lemnos. These were underground carved out rocks, used by vintners for the fermentation of must, and sealed with round slates. The colour gold was chosen here to highlight the value of the wine.
