The Art of Collecting Wine Labels

Jul 28, 2008
Just about any wine has personalized wine bottle labels on their bottles. The reason being is that every vineyard and sometimes every vintage is going to have its own label. Many wine producers have been changing their labels based on what people have been saying about wanting updated labels that are easier to read. This means that the older labels are starting to become collector's items and the older the label or the better the vintage the more value is going to be attached to the label.

When establishing any type of label collection it may become necessary to preserve the container especially bottles such as wine bottles. The various methods used to remove labels can destroy or otherwise damage a label as it's being lifted from the curved surface of a wine bottle.

Just as with all collectors items it is important that it maintain its condition in order to be of any value. If you do have to remove a label it is a good idea to gentle do so with a label removing procedure. Most people use heat in order to loosen the glue. This must be done carefully because heat damage can reduce the value of the label if you are collecting for value of the vineyard.

Vineyards use a couple of different methods in the creation of their labels. Some vineyards use the works of famous people in the making of their labels. Other vineyards enlist the help of outside sources to help create their labels. The latter method is what actually leads to the creation of, not just a label, but a work of art. And, amazingly enough, these labels are become collector's items because of the artwork which they possess.

Highly valued in the collector's world, these completely commissioned labels make each wine bottle a work of art that is 100% personalized. When you are trying to start your own collection of wine labels, there are some things that you'll need to think about.

For the label collector, it's the old labels you're going to want to check out. The most valuable labels you will find are the ones done freehand, the original labels that were made before they were mass produced or the ones from fine wines. When looking into any of the above mentioned labels you will find they are very valuable.

If you are looking to get into collecting personalized wine bottle labels consider doing some research into the types of vintages that are going to provide you with a true investment. It is a time consuming hobby and while interesting and definitely, a conversation piece does not have a huge following. This means that it is a good idea collect either highly desirable labels or simple collect based on your own preferences and collect just for the fun of it without considering the actual value that comes with the labels or the wine.
