I'm a small time vintner with a big problem, my wine is fantastic (at least I and my friends think so!) but my labels look like something I threw together on a whim. The shelves at the local store are overflowing with fancy bottles and mine just gets lost in the crowd.

I know good wine speaks for itself eventually but let's be honest, first impressions matter. Anyone have tips for designing a wine label that grabs attention without breaking the bank?
 
Just call it what it is.
or go to a Wine establishment that sells kits. You can choose your labels from a multitude of designs, colours. Costs about maybe $4.00 for 30 labels.

Do you have an art school or college with a design program nearby. Students who are ambitious (do those exist in GenZ?) are always looking to do a project that will be seen, and they can add to their portfolios. Cook a student a good home-cooked meal and discuss the project while eating.

When I was first starting, I did some design work for free/cheap just to get exposure. It's worth a try.

Great wine deserves a label that reflects its quality. You don't need a fancy budget, but some design attention can go a long way. Check out this resource here for tips on creating eye-catching labels that will make your delicious wine stand out on the shelf!
 
I think wine labeling has evolved now where just about anything can work successfully and not really sure what your asking.

Personally I don't have the needed artistic fundamentals to produce a decent label and would need to get some help but it certainly wouldn't be a classic interpretation, no doubt about that.
