Rock Ferry Wines

Rock Ferry is the brainchild of long established Marlborough grape grower Tom Hutchison whose focus is on producing characterful organic wines of impressive quality from Marlborough and Central Otago. An excellent Blanc de blanc, a serious take on Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and perfectly formed Barrique Fremented Chardonnay take their place along side the more unusual Central Otago Viognier and Tempranillo.

Like the wines the Rock Ferry labels are unique, understated and withstand contemplation. My role with Rock Ferry has been to update the Rock Ferry wine label with separate labels for the Marlborough and Central Otago wines. The drawings, printed onto textured paper stock, create a tactile quality to the label and the use of printing techniques; embossing and gold foiling, provide a complexity and give the design depth.  Together these elements are juxtaposed within the confines of the label to convey a sense of heritage with modern styling, that reflects the values of the brand and its premium positioning in the market place.

I have also designed the wine label brands "Sunny Cove" and "Cawte's Cave" for export markets, each of which incorporate drawn, sketched iconography to add a textural quality to the labels and, like the parent brand "Rock Ferry",  balance a modern sensibility with a sense of tradition.
