Hints for Spooktacular Halloween Custom Wine Labels
There are many different wine label sizes available to winemakers. When making DIY wine labels, you may think that designing your label first and then putting them on your bottles makes sense. But remember this: Size matters! Well, wine label size, that is.
Wine Bottle Parts
Wine bottles can have vastly different body sizes. The body is the flat part between the heel and the shoulder where you adhere the label. Unless you have a label shape that is specifically designed to work on a curved surface, the flat wall of the body is the only place your label should go.

If you wait long enough, what was old will become new again. It was true for miniskirts, platform shoes, and skinny jeans. It’s also true for these retro custom wine labels.
We’ve noticed a trend in retro-looking wine labels lately on the wines we buy in the store. What’s fun is that they fit right in with today’s bright, colorful, creative labels! To honor this design trend, we’ve created several retro custom bottle labels and recently added them to our website.

This chart has standard bottle sizes, and how much flat space is available for the label on each one. *Please note, bottles may vary in actual size. This chart is a guideline of common sizes. Always measure your wine bottles to be sure.* Continue reading →
What’s the best, most efficient and economical way for storing homemade wine? That’s been a big question in the Noontime household lately.
If you’re like us, you’ve found that home winemaking leads to having lots of wine to store. We recently stepped up our winemaking production so we could set aside some bottles to age. And we discovered our existing hodge-podge of homemade wine racks and boxes just couldn’t hold it all.
We needed more wine storage! So Mrs. Noontime and I looked at a number of options. Continue reading →
