We are importers of fine boutique wine from Burgundy, France (mainly from our family's village in Nuits St Georges) to Sydney, Australia where we now live. We are importing organic/natural/minimal intervention wines to high-end bars, bistros, restaurants and food and wine festivals.
We are young players in an industry that is mainly dominated by conservative, older, male wine importers and we want a point of difference that appeals to inner city hipster bars and restaurants and that reflects the next generation of wine lovers but that still pays homage to the industry with a vintage-inspired look and feel.
We are open to ideas but we quite like the idea of a coat of arms or incorporation of a wine glass, corkscrew or bottle or even just beautiful retro typography/font. We quite like quirky, whimsical ideas like a bottle with wings for example but please keep it sophisticated and not cartoony.
In terms of styles, we love mid century design, Wes Anderson films, old fashioned letter press, old school typography/signage, French style but no clichés, please and no tired hipster imagery such as moustaches, tophats etc.
