Wine Label Design Contest

Wine Labels are a crucial part of wine shopping. It is the sole source of information on a product and a driving force in helping consumers make decisions. But what often makes a shopper pick up a certain bottle versus another? The imagery on the bottle of course! That’s why we are hosting the first ever Wine Label Design Contest at Bauer! Submissions will only be accepted during ArtWeek and must be designed around the theme of the contestant’s choice.* Bauer will have a design area for contestants and each entry will be showcased on our social media. Entries will be accepted from September 30th to October 7th. Then, on October 8th and 9th stop by Bauer Wine & Spirits to vote for your favorite! The winner will receive two tickets to our annual, private, and VIP ‘The Best for Our Best’ wine tasting event at the Boston Harbor Hotel on November 15th where they will taste over 80 wines, mingle with the industry’s leading experts, and indulge in food pairings from Chef Daniel Bruce, Executive Chef and Founder of the Boston Wine Festival.

Our event allows contestants the possibility to express their artistic side through drawing, sketching, painting, even charcoaling, in order to create a wine label based around the theme of their choice.* Contestants must follow the general layout of a label, including the front and back. It may not be larger than 4” x 5” per side. All submissions must be designed and entered between September 30th and October 7th by visiting Bauer Wine & Spirits where you can hand in your submission to any member of our team. The winner will get to attend one of the biggest and most exclusive wine tasting events in the city where guests interact with the top wine executives while sipping on over 80 wines.

About Newbury, MA
The plantation of Newbury was founded as a town in 1635 and is located in the northeastern part of Essex County. Pawtucket Indians hunted and captured seasonal runs before settlers appeared.

As the town grew fishing - weaving - tanning and shoe making as well as small scale ship building became important industries. Farmers would raise cattle and sheep so by 1791 there were over 3000 cattle on the town lands. Around that time the town began to produce woolen goods made from the first American-made wool machines that also included snuff and chaises and slate.

The competition from England's woolen mills decreased the emphasis on woolens which led to the production of cotton fabric and was the beginning of a cooperage which is a machine made nail factory and scythe mill.

In 1844 James Steam Mills was began and in 1850 the railroads were in town, by 1845 45000 pairs of shoes were made. Soon the economy would swing back into agriculture and by the end of the 19th century there was a large shift into dairying. By 1905 instead of shoes there were 450000 gallons of milk were produced and poultry and eggs became a significant business.
