This wine label project was created as part of the 90th anniversary celebration for the Biltmore, Santa Barbara Four Seasons Resort. Before beginning the project, we toured the property and referenced elements that were significant to the Resort to draw inspiration from (see a few elements referenced in the images below).
The set of two, the Reserve “1927" (left) and the Biltmore Merlot, represent the dual nature of the design. The “1927” is a limited edition bottling while the white label is intended to be made each year.
The font for “Biltmore” was traced from an old photograph of the property to tie in with the Art Deco period when the resort was built.
The channel islands at the base references the view as seen from the resort and the palm texture is a tribute to the diverse collection of palm species found throughout the resort’s property.
