Have you ever bought wine based off of looks? Me too (that cat wine bottle gets me every time). That’s why they haven’t applied the science of Tinder to wine bottle labels. Nine out of ten times the beautiful artwork doesn’t resonate with the wine flavor—don’t quote me on that. So when you’re shopping around this holiday for the perfect host gift, i.e., a nice bottle of wine, a true connoisseur will find the best bottle not based on looks. That was the golden rule until we met with Master Sommelier Brett Zimmerman of Boulder Wine Merchant who educated us on four creative wine labels that host delicious wines. This year, stand out in the party crowd with a memorable, artsy wine bottle that won’t disappoint.
Now that’s something to drink to.
