Learn All About Wine Labels And Their Meaning!

The labels on the bottles are the first thing the customer sees of their bottle of wine. It is the place of the first meeting between the producer and the consumer, therefore the place of the first information on the wine and the winemaker. Zoom on the different wine labels and the meaning that the winegrowers wanted to give them! Put on the masks, the wine world can also laugh. Here are the undersides of the wine labels bottle labels! The essential information on the labels 

A label must include, among other things:

  • The name of the wine: AOC, IGP, table wine ...
  • The name and address of the wine producer or seller
  • The volume of content
  • The percentage of alcohol volume

But the producer can also add:

The year of harvest: it is compulsory on the wine labels of primeur, sur lie and new wines. If the vintage is indicated, at least 85% of the grapes must come from this vintage. For sparkling wines, it is compulsory to indicate the sugar content (raw, dry, sweet). This is optional for other wines.

The type of grape variety can be indicated (Merlot, Pinot, Chardonnay). If the grape variety is mentioned, at least 85% of the grapes must come from this grape variety. If there are several grape varieties, the percentage of each grape variety must be indicated.The medals or prizes awarded to wine. A name for its wine. That's what will grab our attention here!


If we can travel through the kitchen, we can also find a loophole in wine, which can make us travel. And it is in the South of France that we are going, with Rosés with quite evocative names, and whose wine labels invite us to sing “We would say the South…”.

Through a 2015 rosé wine from the Southern Alps, we thus find Le Goût des Vacances . This fuchsia pink wine lifts aromas of red fruits and floral nuances. It's ready to drink, so perfect for impatient vacationers!

But the label that refers us most to the South is obviously that of La Cigale  ! A glass of this fruity and gourmet rosé wine that mixes red fruits and tangy candies, and we hear the Cicadas sing! The label represents a Cicada at the café in the port, a glass of wine labels in hand. And we really want to join her….
