Carolyn's Sakonnet Vineyard

Wine Label Illustrations

Artist Name

I designed and illustrated nine wine labels for Sakonnet Vineyard, an award-winning vineyard in Little Compton, RI. The goal was to create colorful, highly-detailed, eye-catching labels that would entice new shoppers to try the brand. These labels were very successful; the vineyard now produces these images on wine charms, and displays them large-scale in their tasting room.

The wings move separately from the key, and a two-tone finish and Swarovski crystals complete the look.
