Who designed your wine label?

Our current label was designed by Stephen Noble in 2011. Stephen graduated from the University of California, Davis in 1990, he has mastered a wide range of detail and style within the scratch-board medium and has become internationally recognized for his work from clients as far way as Japan to Europe.

Over the years, he has become equally adept in the woodcut, pen and ink, traditional engraving and steel engraving styles, as well as a variety of stylized scratch-board techniques. His highly disciplined and complex line work is based on over 23 years of experience using X-Acto precision knives carved into pre-inked clay boards which generate very fine line strokes which allow a versatility in the detail from bold woodcuts to very fine traditional 19 century steel engravings.

Over the course of his career, he has created many nationally recognized logos and ad campaigns for a large list of prestigious and high caliber clients such as Coors (corporate/packaging logo), Exxon-Mobil (stock certificate), JP Morgan (annual report) and Mercedes-Benz (ad campaigns). A lot of his expertise encompasses a large volume of subject matter that include food, portraits, animals, maps, architecture, and corporate conceptual images.

In 2001, he won the "Meade Show Award for Excellence" for creating the best corporate conceptual illustration for an annual report for the Wet Seal's 2001 Annual Report. In addition, in 1996 his work was recognized in the Communication Art Magazine for the best advertising spot for "Beaulieu Vineyards."

Steven continues to strive for excellence in his work and is always up for the next challenge. One of his last projects was a series of illustrations for the acclaimed Children's book "Zathura" which came out (Fall 2005) at the same time as the release of the movie "Zathura".
