Every Friday we raise a glass to celebrate some of the best new boozy bottles to hit store shelves. Today we’re commiserating with the wrapping-inept, for whom even the nicest paper is woefully insufficient. Consider these holiday-ready, wrapped bottles our gift to you.
Cobalto-17, by Koiástudio
Proving wines aren’t the only ones wrapped in stunning prints, this Portuguese gin combines lab coats with artistic vision for a crisp design. Modeled around a fictional element, the abstract patterns complement the cobalt blue color scheme for a clean look that supports our view: science is sexy.

Honest Wine Matković, by Señor
Let’s reclaim our zen from stressful family reunions and long-distance travels with these lovely “confessions.” The ethereal, earthy images evoke a sense of intimacy, transporting us to a tranquil forest where we imagine these secrets would be whispered in our ear. Our favorite message of the bunch? “Pinot noir made me tipsy so I told her I loved her and gave her the last bit of my steak.”
Gorget, by Natalia Wysocka
Though the wine is named after a medieval fashion item—a traditional linen piece that wraps around a woman’s neck—the resulting design is anything but stuffy. The geometric lines and vibrant pink hues of the origami-like box offer a contemporary take on the out-dated accessory.

Renace Wine, by Martin Sombathy
With a motto of “RE-creating, RE-inventing, and RE-vealing ancestral wines,” this gorgeously wrapped wine harks back to biblical times. But instead of clunky clay vessels, this packaging does throwbacks right with prints of classic Renaissance painting contrasted with the minimalist type play on the label.
