Brook Vale project

Brook Vale Vineyard is located in Northern Neck, Virginia, and sells regional wines. In 2008, two entrepreneurs decided to achieve their dream of owning a vineyard and found land in Brook Vale that was ideal for growing grapes. They now manage Brook Vale Vineyard, which has grown to include a bar, restaurant, courtyard, and gift shop. They also host vineyard tours, wine tastings, and community events. Brook Vale’s wines are lovingly grown, designed, blended, and bottled, and they have won a variety of awards.

For this college project, I designed the logo first. I researched the logos and wine bottle labels of small Virginia vineyards and came up with something unique: a mark that included both a wine bottle and a wine glass in two fluid lines. Then I designed the wine bottle labels, following the legal requirements for the size of type of the government-required text on the back of the label.

The design on the right in the image above is a recipe that pairs well with the wine, which might be handed out at a wine tasting or promotional event.
