The solution is a printer specializing in short runs of wine bottle labels. Such a printer can help the wine maker design wine labels, and then make wine labels tailored to the maker’s vision.

Many winemakers have never heard of these services, and may have concerns about an unfamiliar source of custom wine labels.

A wine maker may be concerned about whether his personalized labels will be easy to apply, and if they will stay on the bottle.

Wine bottle labels created for home winemakers are very easy to apply to clean, oil-free bottles at room temperature.

The wine label will bond more completely to the glass the longer it is on the bottle. It is a good idea to let the wine labels set for at least a week before putting the bottles in water.

Winemakers ordering unique labels may also wonder if the wine bottle labels are waterproof.

The labels are water-resistant, meaning that the paper will retain its strength and the ink will not run when exposed to water. After the custom wine labels bond to the bottle for at least a week, the bottles can be placed in a tub of ice for cooling.

One huge advantage of a wine label printing company specializing in home winemakers is that the winemaker can design wine labels from templates. This saves the cost of working with a professional designer, but still creates totally unique labels. For the wine hobbyist who isn’t satisfied to make wine labels on a home computer and printer, this is the perfect solution.

What is the biggest advantage of ordering personalized wine labels in manageable quantities?

The best thing about custom wine labels ordered from a specialty printer is those manageable quantities.

Winemakers can order labels in quantities as low as 30. These low quantities make it possible to make unique labels for different purposes, from separate batches to special occasions to branding purposes for sale.

The next most important advantage with these wine bottle labels is that they are truly unique. Though starting from a template, the wine maker can design wine labels that exactly fit his personality and the wine’s purpose.

The templates are completely customizable to make wine labels that look completely different from each other.

All of these advantages combine to make custom wine labels a smart choice for the wine maker.

Pairing Wines and Chocolate

By Stacy Slinkard, About.com Guide

Some say it can’t be done, pairing wine with chocolate, but if you have the right wine to complement the right chocolate it can be a match made in heaven! Whether you are pairing a delicate white chocolate or a lively dark chocolate with wine, there are a few pairing tips to keep in mind.

Tips for Successfully Pairings Wines with Chocolate

Rule #1, typically the wine should be at least as sweet, if not a touch sweeter, than the chocolate you are serving it with. Otherwise, the taste may quickly veer towards bitter or sour.

When pairing wines with chocolate, your best bet is to match lighter, more elegant flavored chocolates with lighter-bodied wines; likewise, the stronger the chocolate, the more full-bodied the wine should be. For example, a bittersweet chocolate tends to pair well with an intense, in-your-face California Zinfandel.

Similar to “formal” wine tasting, if you will be experimenting with several varieties of chocolates, work from light to dark. Start with a more subtle white chocolate and end on a dark or bittersweet chocolate.

White Chocolate Wine Suggestions

White chocolate tends to be more mellow and buttery in flavor, making it an ideal candidate for a Sherry (consider the Osborne Pedro Ximénez Sherry $20), for a Moscato d’Asti (try Saracco Moscato d’Asti 2006, $13), from Italy’s Piedmont region offers subtle, sweet bubbles, or an Orange Muscat (try Ventana Vineyard’s Muscat d’Orange for $18). The Sherry and Moscato d’Asti will pick up the creaminess of the chocolates and the Orange Muscat will pick up any fruit tones on the scene. Another route, for pairing wine with white chocolate is going for the contrast pairing approach, this is a little riskier, but when you find a match it can be exceptional. For example, taking a wine like a Zinfandel which tends to have a heavier tannic content and often a higher alcohol level and partnering it with a creamy, buttered white chocolate can have an unusual “melding” affect. It’s like the tannins get softened out by the fat content and make for a remarkable potential for pairing.

Milk Chocolate Wine Suggestions

Pinot Noir (you might consider Mark West Pinot Noir $10) or a lighter-bodied Merlot (try Hogue or Columbia Crest) will complement a bar of milk chocolate, a creamy chocolate mousse or chocolate accented cheesecake. Rieslings, Muscats (try Bonny Doon’s Muscat Vin de Glaciere or the Bonny Doon “Vin de Glaciere” Muscat for $15) or dessert wines tend to hold up well to mild milk chocolates. Also consider a sparkling wine or Champagne for pairing with milk chocolate dipped strawberries. Last, but not least a classic milk chocolate pairing to consider is a nice Ruby Port – a very safe bet when looking for a perfect wine to accent milk chocolate.

The Basics of Picking Great Wedding Champagne and Wine

By Nina Callaway

Wondering which champagnes and wines to serve at your wedding? Don’t know how much of each you’ll need? Here are the basics that you’ll need to know to get the perfect mix at your big day.

You may already have a Champagne or wine that you love – something that the two of you drank on a favorite date, or a Champagne that your parents drank at their wedding. If you don’t, there are many helpful sites to Champagne and wine on the net, including wine.about.com. Your caterer will most likely have recommendations for you and will help you figure out how much wine you’ll need for the amount of people you’re having. At most parties, approximately 30-50% will drink white wine (mostly Chardonnay), 30-50% will drink red wine (mostly cabernet), and about 10 to 20% will drink white zinfandel. You’ll want to consider your crowd: more women usually mean more white wine drinkers, more men mean more red wine. I work with a lot of theater crowds which are heavy beer and red wine drinkers.

You’ll also want to consider what entree you are serving. Sauvignon Blanc goes with a wide variety of seafood entrees, as well as poultry and cheeses, and is the best option for pasta with a cream sauce. Chardonnay is a widely popular white that works well with chicken, pork and many seafood dishes.
