We create, from a set of designs, labels to place onto your chosen wine which will reflect the occasion and the person celebrating.
For example, as well as having their own named wine, if they are celebrating a 20th birthday, we will put:
'A Twenty year Vintage".
Chateau Murphy (will be their surname)
Produce of Kildare (where they were born)
Specially Selected by David and Victoria (your name)
The back label wording will make the bottle even more individual e.g. their hobbies, occupation etc.
Their favourite bar... 'Often served in The Rose and Crown'.
Married to Debbie with 2 children... 'Blended with the Debbie grape to produce two younger varieties'.
Someone who likes golf... 'The grape thrives in rough and sandy regions (...also fairways)'.
Standard Delivery on this personalised product takes 6-8 days and costs €4.95 per shipment.
Please note that there are only 3 to 4 facts which can be used on the label.
About the Person(s)
We use what you give
in this section to write the text. What you supply here we have to
convert into something which may appear in a wine description - so
please be clear, non-cryptic and to the point...
ie. give us a chance!
Good things to include:
Grew up in
Maiden Name - Murphy
Nickname - Murphs
They have three kids -
John, Mary & Gordon
Pet dog -
or Snooker or
Favourite Meal -
Bangers & Mash
Not such good
things to include:
Special Needs Carer
or Assistant to
Regional Manager or
Civil Servant in DRD
Unless their jobs
are straightforward (eg. policeman, teacher, fireman, lorry driver
etc.) they are really difficult to include in the wine description.
Relations - unless
they are directly linked to the person(s) ie. parents or children,
they are very difficult to connect in the wine description (no
uncles or cousins etc). Grandchildren are OK to include if you also
mention the children (ie Person(s) - Children - Grandchildren).
- Football or Rugby etc. "Likes" tells us very little - better to
say plays or goes to or watches on TV etc.
Messages (Aaarrggh!) -
Best dad in the world
or have a great day
or to a special
friend of Bob & Susan etc.
Cryptic Nonsense -
No Passport Required
or The Bill Bryson of
Little Birds Are Coming etc. If we do not know what it means
we can not use it!
Vague Statements -
Married with kids
or Works in an office
or Enjoys sports
or Has dogs or
Likes Cars or
Has his own business
etc. Better to be specific.
Past Tense Information -

had a trial for Arsenal or

or kind and
The Golden Rule
Imagine a policeman
has asked you to tell them four facts about the person(s) the gift
is for so they can find them - What would you say?
