    The wine bottle label should capture attention, invoke curiosity and introduce the brand. Selecting the right label and material are important decisions to creating a customized wine bottle label. Wine bottles are exposed to conditions that can vary between different temperatures and climates.

    The template is in a PDF format, you probably need to upload the Adobe or Acrobat program, the downloads are free, and the programs are handy for personal use.
    Good Luck

    I love this idea... but I can't get the pdf file to download. Anyone else having a problem?

    This is a really nice idea. I used it last year for all the winebottles during our Halloween diner! But I always save my winebottles for other crafts, so I donn n n n t stick the labels with glue. Instead I make the self made label wet (not soaking) in a bowl of water, then I rub a little layer of milk on the back and stick it to the bottle. It will stay perfectly and afterwards it can be removed very easily!

    I love this. It reminds me of Edward Gorey.
