The Great Bonza

The Great Bonza

lovely-package-the-gret-bonanza-1

Designed by United Power | Country: Sweden

“Bonza is an Australian expression that describes the feeling that spread through the body before you exclaim “hurray!”. Something is bonza if it is superb and amazing, but at the same time laid back and relaxed. People and places can be bonza. This wine is. Therefore, it was namned The Great Bonza. The wine is produced in Australia by renowned Quarisa Wines, and it is powerful and nuanced, with hints of black currant, black cherry, licorice and coffee.

For the design the client wanted something playful and colorful. We got catchwords like: cheerful and retro. The latter, as producer John got a retro feel of the name. The client also wanted to relate to the Australian origin.

So we thought: since the wine is powerful in flavour, and The Great Bonza is a quirky name for a wine – why not use a quirky Australian circus? The design is playful with a nod to the classic image of the boxing kangaroo. We chose happy and bright colors that are perhaps a little unexpected in the context. We wanted the box to stand out on the shelf, but also add to the atmosphere at the dinner table – a truly colorful exterior for a truly colorful wine.”

Fil

The Great Bonza

lovely-package-fil-3

Designed by Senyor Estudi | Country: Spain

“A fine line separates the worlds of wine and beer. Fil is a seam stitched between these two worlds. A sparkling wine made with a type of yeast typically used for brewing beer.

The natural formation of bubbles produced by bottle fermentation manifests itself in a multitude of threads of tiny bubbles that give their name to ‘vi d’agulla,’ literally ‘needle wine’ – subtle and persistent on the tongue and the palate.

The name ‘Fil’ means ‘thread’ in Catalan.”

Varvaglione Limited Edition

The Great Bonza

lovely-package-varvaglione-limited-edition-3

Designed by Idem Design | Country: Italy

“The Limited Edition Collection for Varvaglione consists in a series of packaging for two different types of Italian red wine: Negroamaro del Salento and Primitivo del Salento. The idea was to create a design object, a cult, something precious and unique. Our aim was to “dress” the bottle like a living object and, to do that, we took inspiration from fashion world by which we were fascinated. The fashion area we analyzed was the textile one, in which we chose two textures to “sewed” our packaging around the bottle. Our work didn’t stop here, we also designed two special gift boxes (one for each texture chosen), in which are contained 6 bottles of wine.”
