FEIJOA WINE: part four


At long last our Feijoa wine is ready! (You can check out the process of our feijoa wine here) So I did a quick wee label to pop on our mismatched bottles. They're not typical looking labels but I've seen some really cool, unconventional ones around lately. I particularly like the Logan Wine labels by War Design which have embroidered flower patterns on them. I love it when an old trade or craft comes back into style :)





It was a lovely bubbly surprise when we first opened a bottle of our wine... Somehow it was sparkling! Apparently it's called the Malic Acid Effect and it just happens once in a blue moon to a batch. And I've got to say I hope it happens often! It was super yummy and sweet. Almost a wine crossed with a cider. Delish!

  2. Love them! What type of adhesive did you use? Also, was there a great way you discovered was the best way to remove the original wine labels? I'm about to work on our mis-match bottles as well.

    Thank you in advance,

  3. Hi LAscrapper, I used 3M Spray Adhesive on our labels. I soaked the bottles in hot soapy water and scrapped as much of the label off as I could with my fingers and a scrubbing brush. I left them out to dry and then used turpentine to get rid of any sticky residue. Good luck!
