wine labels for a wedding, payment in wine


A good friend of mine started to produce wine in Aragón with local friends there. Only a small production for own use and friends and friends of friends. There will be a tinto, a rosado and a blanco. He asked me to design the label of one of the wines - a great honour for me and very exciting! Never did this before! I´ll show the result as soon as it is finished and approved. The payment will be in wine, of course (-;  This reminds me very much of my friend Yvonne, check this out.
Anyway the labels I show you here are a special commission of the same friend: friends of him just got married and he wants to give them a "sixpack" of his wines. So he commissioned me to design three different labels. These are hand painted and there are two of each. Do you guess which label is for the white, for the red and for the rosé wine? Do you like them?
un buen amigo mío ha empezado de producir vino en Aragón con unos amigos suyos lugareños de allí. Sólo una pequeña producción para uso propio y amigos y amigos de amigos. Va a haber un tinto, un rosado y un blanco. Me encargó del diseño de la etiqueta de uno de los vinos - ¡un gran honor para mí y muy emocionante! ¡Nunca lo he hecho antes! Os enseñaré el resultado una vez terminado y aprobado. El pago será con vino, por supuesto (-; Esto me recuerda mucho a mi amiga Yvonne, echad un vistazo aquí.
Bueno, las etiquetas que véis aquí son un encargo especial del mismo amigo: unos amigos suyos se casaron hace poco y les quiere regalar un estuche con seis de sus vinos. Me ha encargado de hacer tres diseños diferentes. Están pintados a mano, en parejas de dos en dos. ¿Adivinas cuál de las etiquetas es para el blanco, el tinto y el rosado? ¿Te gustan?

The labels are wonderful! Wouldn't that be great to receive as a newly wed couple! I like everything about it: the self produced wine, the beautifully designed labels, the gift idea and the paymen in wine. I hope you'll enjoy your payment :)
