Edible Santa Barbara Wine Label Artwork Contest
—Best Traditional with a Twist—
Design and illustration by Tom Adler and Evan Backes.
Judges praised this logo for managing to be classy and whimsical at the same time. There’s a clever word play on the name. Mutage is a winemaking term for making sweet wines by adding a high-proof, neutral grape spirit to the wine before fermentation is complete to preserve some of the natural sugars of the grapes. Margerum describes their Mute-Age as “silently baking and aging in 34 liter demi-johns on the Margerum Wine Company roof.”
Many thanks to our judges: Harriet Eckstein, Jennifer LeMay and Michael Nicola.
