Vinarija Đurđić is Serbian wine producer with vineyards on the west side of Sremski Karlovci with views of the Danube. Set-up in 2004 the winery is one of the youngest growers in the region. While describing itself as being unburdened by the generational history of many other wine businesses, it has embraced a traditional bench-grafting technique and growers principles that have their origins in early 20th century Italy, something that has secured Vinarija Đurđić both praise and criticism. These themes are brought to life across new wine labels created by Peter Gregson Studio.

The use of bold, flat and extensive panels of colour, bordered and enhanced by white, a monospaced type choice and a silver block foiled shield, effectively leverages a modern and reductive shelf impact where others favour typographic and illustrative detail, favours technical information over storytelling whilst also utilising more familiar heritage and high-quality cues. The treatment places youth front and centre yet backs this up with the insight and a clear appreciation for traditional practices. Much like the winery’s approach, the labels are likely to be divisive yet able to differentiate. More from Peter Gregson Studio on BP&O.

Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
