Every Friday we raise a glass to celebrate some of the best new boozy bottles to hit store shelves. This week we’re taking a break from Mad Men-era drinks and embracing “the future is female” mantra. Here’s to redefining “feminine” packaging design for the 21st century.
Cantine Vitale, by Andrea Petruccio
Since when did “delicate typeface” become synonymous with impossibly thin letters and swirling calligraphy? We’re fighting back against the rise of illegible forms with a geometric type that gets the message across without losing its dreaminess. Plus, don’t these fluid letters tumbling into each other like a tangle of grapevines make you feel so poetic (or is that the wine talking)?
La Milagrosa, by Tata&Friends
From her pearls to her decades-old hairstyle that defies the comings and goings of ephemeral fashion trends, grandmas are all about stick–to–itiveness.

In the spirit of stepping up our hosting game for the holidays, we’re channeling the celebratory vibe of these fun and freewheeling illustrations. If you’re in need of a colorful wine and diverse crew to take a quiet Thanksgiving dinner to block-party level, this is the bottle to grab.
Comme Par Magie, by Bohyun Kim, Jaeeun Kim, Haeun Jeong
