Wine, Oh!

I'll admit it. I'm sort of a wine-o, not in the sense that I drink wine all the time, but I do love the taste of it. But, one thing I love even more than the taste are the wine labels themselves. Wine labels, like book covers, are pieces of art. And, I'm sorry to whoever invented the cliche "do not judge a book by its cover," but I believe that it's entirely acceptable to judge books, as well as wines, by their outer artwork.  

I adore these wine labels, especially the one that's covered in type (by Robot-food). There's something beautiful in its simplistic nature. And, how can you not appreciate the nice typography? I wish I could have a glass of wine from one of these bottles right now...

The illustrations from this second set (by Narrow House) are so interesting too. I would love to pull these out of the fridge at a party. How fun would that be?!  

Someday, when I have more space to live in than a tiny apartment, I want to have a wine bottle collection. I think it could make for a great art display on a shelf or something. I want that and a collection of beautiful perfume bottles.  Aaaaah...someday!

Sometimes I buy crappy wine just for the bottles and put wax candle corks in them: http://www.uncommongoods.com/item/item.jsp?itemId=12841

Trader Joe's is a great place to get cheap wine with fun labels!

I LOVE Trader Joe wines. I like going and just looking around their wine section and not even buying anything. They have really beautiful wines!
