Edible Santa Barbara Wine Label Artwork Contest
Can you judge a wine by its label? Perhaps not, but it is certainly part of the whole package when it comes to selecting and enjoying wine. So we asked three design professionals to judge wine labels based on artistic quality and graphic design for our second annual Wine Label Artwork Contest. In order to showcase local artistic design, the contest was open only to wineries located Santa Barbara County. There were so many excellent submissions and so much variety that we had to break them down by category. Kudos to these winning labels and many thanks to all who entered. There is no shortage of talent in Santa Barbara County on the outside (or inside) of the wine bottles. Click each wine in the list below to see the label and judges’ comments.
