In addition to the Arconvert Label Award, allocated to No Man’s Space Eclipse Gin by Spazio di Paolo, all labels on the podium of the “wine and champagne” category of the Dieline Awards are designed on Arconvert self-adhesive materials. Three incredible projects to be discovered!

First prize goes to Tread Softly by Denomination (Australia).

1st Place Wine & Champagne Tread Softly_web
Created by the acclaimed Australian design studio Denomination for Fourth Wave, this new wine line wants to address a new, younger generation, a generation whose environmental and health consciousness can’t be overlooked. Key elements must therefore be sustainability, minimal preservatives and low alcohol percentage, all characteristics reflected in the “Tread Softly” name too.

A deliberately tiny front label to attract consumers and let them nearer. Once the bottle is turned the exploding presence of nature, flowers, insects and birds recalls the ethical and environmental mark the wine has. A delicate and sophisticate label with a powerful message, for every sold case a new tree planted.

The labels are printed by MultiColor Australia on Arconvert’s Tintoretto Cashemere a FSCTM certified and pure chlorine-free (ECF) cellulose paper. This beautiful material is felt marked and perfectly conveys the image of raw, natural and sustainable beauty.

Second prize goes to Cielo Sommerso by Superunion (Hong-Kong).

Superunion has been hoarding awards at this year’s Dieline edition, winning the Studio of the year title and the Best of Show, Editor’s choice as well as the silver award for the wine and champagne category.

The latter was gained thanks to San Marcello winery’s Cielo Sommerso and its outstanding design. Fermented for 8 months, using an ancient Hellenic technique, in clay pots buried down in the earth this bio-dynamic wine results in an incredible richness of flavor and aroma.

A design playing with references, sun-soaked grapes buried underground as depicted on the beautiful label printed by Etichettificio Antoniano, from here the particular name Cielo Sommerso (Submerged Sky). The material used is Arconvert’s Tintoretto Gesso H+O, the most iconic uncoated felt-marked paper from the ManterTM range of special self-adhesive papers combined with the H+OpacityTM technology to preserve the initial opacity and premium image of the labels, to meet the demanding challenge of  ice bucket and temperature changes. For the tactile side of the design a mixture of earth from the vineyard and glue to create a clay effect.


Third prize goes to Album di Famiglia by Spazio di Paolo (Italy).

Besides receiving the Arconvert Label Award with No Man’s Space Eclipse Gin, Spazio di Paolo collects another prize in the wine and champagne category with another incredible project, Album di Famiglia [Family Album]. The design starts from authentic pictures from the early 20th century. Tripod, wooden view camera, silver salt and magnesium powder emulsified glass panes for the flash, these are the core ingredients of ancient photography and elements of creativity triggers for this beautiful line. A family album, one you can find in every home, beautiful memories of past times, where rhythm was given by nature and a harvest season.

Three labels for three organic wines of the Puglia region, weaving together concepts like family, nature and origins.
Printed by Modulsi on Arconvert’s Picasso X-Dry and Cotone Bianco Ultra WS, are a perfect mix of sustainability and performace, for premium products.

Picasso X-Dry is an uncoated paper produced with FSC™ certified elemental chlorine free (ECF) wood-free primary pulp. Its natural white shade and felt-marked texture make it elegant and high-class. Picasso features X-Dry™ waterproof technology specifically designed to preserve the initial label opacity and integrity after being exposed to extreme temperature changes in the fridge and ice bucket. X-Dry™ technology also prevents deformation, wrinkles and bubbles and, combined with Arconvert’s permanent acrylic adhesive SH-9020™, is the ideal solution for all premium products requiring high-performing labels.

On the other side Cotone Bianco, produced in the historical Fedrigoni’s factory of Fabriano with pure cotton fibers, a yearly renewable plant, is a paper with a precious felt-marked texture and a delicate natural white shade, which make it one of the must-have self-adhesive papers preferred by label designers all over the world. This paper is combined with the Ultra WSTM treatment which acts as a barrier ensuring greater adaptability of the label on the bottle.
