When the Boulder Crest Retreat Cabernet Sauvignon won Best of Show from 2,000 wine label entries, it was another opportunity to shed a spotlight on the Tackitt Family Vineyards' dedication to honoring the service of veterans. Leon Tackitt is a retired U.S. Navy lieutenant who worked in Explosive Ordinance Disposal, which is the dangerous practice of disarming bombs. He and his wife Cindy donate the proceeds from that wine to support Boulder Crest Retreat, a one-of-a-kind facility in Virginia for wounded veterans.

Cake and wine? It's a connection that goes back generations at Layer Cake Wines, which was named after the founder's grandfather's view that the soils in a vineyard are layered, and if the wines are properly made, it's like a "delicious cake layered with fruit, mocha and chocolate." Layer Cake Wines are now made on four continents and five countries, and the "layered" story behind them captured the attention of Packaging World, which featured Layer Cake in a story on branding a new wine. We're proud to call Layer Cake a Labeltronix customer, and would be happy to help you tell the story of your brand.


Q: I'm hesitant to invest in foil plates. Is there another alternative?

A: Absolutely! Having labels printed on our metallic paper will allow you to create whatever foil color you can imagine - just by adding white layers. This option is good for wineries like yours that don't want to commit to foil stamping yet, but would like to try out the "foil effect." To see how this effect is created, we have a Metallic Spot Creation Guide that you can check out. While the technical details might mean more to your designer than they do to you, this gives you an idea of what goes into using metallic paper. Give me a call for more info or samples!
