Storied winemaker creates stunning namesake brand

For approaching 100 years, the Duval family had supplied grapes to South Australia’s best winemakers. Knowledge of the vineyard has been handed down through five generations, combined with over three decades of experience winemaking at iconic brand Penfolds, provides the foundation for John Duval Wines. Each wine is made from fruit sourced exclusively from exceptional old Barossa vineyards, with a distinctive style defined by elegance and structure.

Concilio is the newest wine in the John Duval range. The development and naming of this wine is in many ways symbolic of the evolution of John Duval Wines, with Tim Duval joining his father John ahead of the 2016 vintage. Targeted toward on-premise accounts, the label needed to evoke a high-end, modern elegance.

Designed by KS Design Studio, the label pays respect to the existing brand palette of black and white but added a pop of color to reflect Concilio’s more modern styling. Printed on Estate 8 stock, the team incorporated silver foil with red overprint, and a high build screen to capture the vision.

It was a pleasure working with MCC in the creation of the new label for our Concilio Grenache. The ability to work well with our label designer, a focus on quality, and attention to detail have produced a striking label we are very happy with.
