Trentham Estate has announced the redesign of its Estate label has won both a Gold and a Category Trophy at the Drinks International Wine Design Challenge 2018.

The Murray Darling region winery has taken out the top award under the category of ‘Repackage Wine Design’.

The Wine Design Challenge rewards companies that distinguish their wines through eye-catching design.

Denomination, the Sydney and London based design consultancy which worked on Trentham’s rebrand, entered the awards in early December 2017.

Their design was then assessed by the expert panel of judges.

Each entry was judged against its execution of the objectives, initial impact, originality, creativity, innovation and relevance to target market.

Trentham set out to update its flagship range’s traditional yet somewhat dated packaging, which was lacking significant shelf standout, and it was decided the solution was to bring the sense of visiting the family winery’s cellar door to life.

The winery said the feedback received since releasing the new labels has affirmed it was the right decision.

Inspired by the unique location on the Murray River, the label features an eye-catching abstract illustration that represents the beautiful views from the estate of the gum trees beside the Murray River.

The natural environment featured was a distinct move to boost the profile of not just Trentham’s own Estate-Grown wines, but the entire Murray Darling region as a whole.

The full list of medal winners will be published in the March issue of Drinks International 2018 and posted on the Drinks International website

The Estate Grown range was released by Trentham in November 2017 with the fresh, new design rolled out across 6 SKUs; Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Shiraz.

This new collection is available for purchase from Trentham’s Cellar Door (15 kilometres from Mildura, Victoria), via their website and at national outlets.
