Wine bottle labels are paper or synthetic labels that are affixed to wine bottles to provide information about the wine inside. The label typically includes the name of the wine, the vintage, the region or country of origin, the producer, and other details such as the alcohol content, grape variety, and tasting notes.
Wine bottle labels can also include government-mandated information, such as a warning about the health hazards of consuming alcohol, the producer’s registration number, and the legal designation of the wine (e.g., “PDO” or “PGI” in the European Union).
If you would like to test any of our quality materials, you can order a sample pack to get a feel of what material or adhesive works best for you:
Brand or Producer Name: This is the name of the company or individual who produced the wine.
Wine Name: The name of the wine, which can be a proprietary name or a traditional name that reflects the grape variety or origin of the wine.
Vintage: The year in which the grapes used to make the wine were harvested.
Appellation or Region: The geographic region where the grapes were grown and the wine was produced.
Alcohol Content: The percentage of alcohol in the wine.
Bottle Volume: The volume of wine in the bottle, usually expressed in milliliters or liters.
Sulfite Statement: A statement indicating that the wine contains sulfites, which are a natural byproduct of the winemaking process and are used as a preservative.
Health Warning: In some countries, such as the United States, a warning about the health risks associated with consuming alcohol is required by law.
Importer or Distributor Information: The name and address of the company responsible for importing or distributing the wine.
In addition to these mandatory elements, wine labels may also include tasting notes, food pairing suggestions, winemaker’s notes, awards and ratings, and other marketing information.

Alternatively, we have Roll Labels
Roll labels are labels that are supplied in a roll form, with multiple labels printed on a continuous roll of material. Roll labels can be used for a variety of purposes, such as product labeling, barcode labeling, and packaging labeling.
Roll labels can be made from a variety of materials, including paper, polypropylene, and more, depending on the application and intended use of the label.
So why use a roll label?
- Customisation: Roll labels can be produced in a variety of sizes, shapes, and designs, allowing for a high level of customization. This is particularly important for wine producers who often have unique branding and label designs that they want to incorporate into their products.
- Cost-effective: Roll labels are typically more cost-effective than other labeling methods, especially for larger quantities of labels. This can be particularly advantageous for wine producers who may produce larger quantities of wine.
- Easy to apply: Roll labels are designed to be easy to apply, especially when using a label dispenser. This can help to save time and increase efficiency in the labeling process.
- Durable: Roll labels can be made with durable materials and adhesives, making them resistant to moisture, heat, and other environmental factors that can affect the quality of the label.
- Branding: Roll labels can help to enhance the branding of a wine product. The labels can be printed with custom designs and branding to help distinguish the product from competitors and create a memorable visual identity.
- Regulatory compliance: Roll labels can include all the regulatory information required by law, such as the product’s alcohol content, country of origin, and any other information that may be required by law.
- Label consistency: Roll labels can ensure consistency in label design across all bottles, helping to maintain a cohesive brand image.
Where can you put a Wine Label on a bottle?
Front Label – The front label is the most important part of the wine label, as it typically includes the name of the wine, the vintage, and the producer. This label is usually placed on the front of the bottle, in the center, or slightly off-center.
Back Label – The back label is an additional label that provides more information about the wine, such as tasting notes, food pairing suggestions, and winemaker’s notes. This label is usually placed on the back of the bottle.
Neck Label – The neck label is a smaller label that is placed around the neck of the bottle. This label can include the producer’s logo or additional information about the wine.
Foil Cap – Some wine bottles have a foil cap that covers the cork. This cap can be printed with the producer’s name or logo.
Lateral Label – The lateral label is a label that is wrapped around the side of the bottle, parallel to the front label. This label can include additional marketing information or a unique design element.
Labelling Materials for Wine Bottles
Wine bottles can be stored in a variety of environments, including humid cellars or refrigerators, which can cause non-waterproof labels to peel or smudge. Waterproof labels are designed to withstand exposure to moisture, preventing them from becoming damaged or illegible.
Matt white paper labels can give a classic and elegant look to wine bottles. The muted finish of the label can complement the traditional image of wine and help to give it a sophisticated appearance. Matt white paper labels are relatively easy to print on, which can be important for wine producers who need to change label designs frequently. The labels can be printed with both ink and toner too.
Gloss white labels have a shiny, reflective finish that can give wine bottles a premium, high-quality appearance. This finish can help to make the wine bottle stand out on the shelf and attract attention. These labels offer a fantastic middle-ground if you need a quality look without the expensive costs.
The metallic finish can give the label a luxurious, premium appearance that can help to convey the quality of the wine inside the bottle. This can be particularly effective for higher-end wines that are marketed to a more affluent demographic.
