Cantina Valpolicella Negrar winery – a leading and historic Italian wine-producing company – decided to associate its products with a well-known figure, it is not by chance that Ulysses was chosen. He is the traveller par excellence and embodies a strong bond with the land, the spirit of enterprise, intelligence and far-sightedness – values which have distinguished this winery for decades.
Drawing inspiration from Ulysses, the “Cantina Valpolicella Negrar” winery is launching the “Wine Mythology Label” project. Planning to dedicate a limited edition of its finest wine – Amarone – to Homer’s hero, it is asking creative designers to develop a label that has what it takes to become an icon, a collection item, the object of desire for thousands of wine lovers from all over the world.
The “Wine Mythology Label” is more than just a packaging. It is a complex experience and embodies the secret soul of this wine, which designers will have to reveal and translate into a visual message – able to evoke the feelings, the nuances and the emotions of the product.
A label is first and foremost an act of courtship, a way of depicting the versatile identity of the wine and of the company producing it; great creativity and imagination are the key to its success. That is why the “Cantina Valpolicella Negrar” winery wants to open up to the world of creativity, asking designers and graphic designers to give shape to the identity of one of its finest wines, creating a label that represents the product and its eighty-year-old history, in order to offer the most demanding customers a unique and enchanting experience.
