Mudgee-based family-run Burnbrae Wines has released its latest vintage wines with a fresh new look full of personality.
The previously white labels have been reimagined with bright hand-crafted collages of shapes, textures, colours and stories designed by Sydney-based creative agency The Accompany Group.
Each wine name and label are inspired by Burnbrae, its surrounds and connections to owners Trine and Andy Gay.
These include the chatty local parrots, driveway lined with blooming magnolia trees, the former dance-hall-turned-cellar-door, and the awe-inspiring blazing sunsets over the nearby ranges among others.
The family of wines sits cohesively together with a core background colour palette, while creating a distinction between ranges with different base colours for whites, reds, rosés and cuvées.
Burnbrae’s white wines share a light blue background reminiscent of a clear, sunny sky; while the reds are characterised with a darker teal blue.
Rosé and moscato feature a light pink label that mirrors the blush colour of the wine; while Burnbrae’s premium product, The Lucky Find Cuvée, evokes the night sky with midnight blue and gold foil detailing.
After getting to know the Gays over pizza and a bottle of wine, The Accompany Group was inspired to tell Burnbrae’s stories, according to founder and creative director Linda Jukic.
“Trine and Andy are great storytellers. We came back from Mudgee with pages of anecdotes and observations about the place, the people and the products,” she said.
“When we began ideating, it seemed fitting that we explore the many stories we shared.”
