Gougér Cellars is Vancouver, Washington's first winery. We were absolutely thrilled when he asked us to manage his branding and design. He trusted our judgement from the gate and the result has been spectacular! We managed everything from the logo and printed material to his website and label design. Look around and see what you think! It's even better after a glass of wine...
Here are several labels from Gary's Red & White wine series. To capture the design we were forced to sample each wine...
This label was designed for Gary's version of a port. Before they were married, Gary & Bonnie had a date that ended at his wine cellar. She had a glass (or more) of his port, and then while he was a way for a few minutes she took the liberty of writing, "Mine" on every box...hence the name. We also won the highest award at the San Francisco International Wine Competition for this design – apparently we are the first studio in the Northwest to do so.
For the business card design we wanted to not only capture his bottle design, but also the ambiance of their winery which combines rustic elements with an elegant aesthetic.
If you haven't visited Gougér Cellars yet, you are missing out! Every weekend they have wine tasting and live music. Stop and by and enjoy some of the best wine the Northwest has to offer. You're also sure to meet some great people, get an education from Gary, and leave feeling ready to tackle the weekend. Hope to see you there soon! Visit Gougér Cellars »
For the website we were faced with the challenge of capturing the minimalist design we built the Gougér brand around, while still conveying a great deal of information from weekly events & news to information about the wine and his awards. The new site is coming soon, we are very excited!
Gougér Cellars grand opening was a big hit. Vancouver's finest, including the mayor all came buy to pay tribute to the Wine-father. We were happy to be a part and Don even got to sign some bottles for folks! 2 hours as a rock star....then back home to mow the lawn.
