Red Nose Studio’s labels for Blasted Church won a Gold medal for label design at the 2010 San Francisco International Wine Competition. The competition recognizes excellence in label design in the wine industry, judging designs based on their artistic merit and brand-enhancing communicative qualities.
The labels tell the story of the old wooden church that inspired the wineries name. In 1929, a small crew headed to a deserted mining town in British Columbia, Canada with the goal of dismantling an old wooden church and bringing it back to their home in Okanagan Falls. The plan called for a controlled blast of four dynamite sticks inside the church in order to “loosen the nails”. Save for losing the steeple, the plan succeeded. Now, the 108 year old wooden church stands proudly in it’s second home of Okanagan Falls, where Blasted Church wines are made.
Congratulations go out to Chris, Bernie, Laurie and everyone at Brandever and Blasted Church!
