The label is the dressing that most dresses the bottle, the one that identifies and presents the wine with a simple glance. She is the bearer of the brand, of its history… and for this reason we love to discover its origins; some that started many years ago ... Wine labels: the origin The beginning of wine labeling dates back to the 18th century where the Egyptians labeled their wines detailing the vintage, the production area and the person who produced it; the winemaker. The first were made in the Monasteries due to the need for wine in Christian sacraments, and the first handwritten label is attributed to the monk Pierre Perignon. A label whose material was parchment and was attached to the neck of the bottle with a piece of string. At first, only the information was taken into account for the elaboration of the label. And it was not until the twentieth century, when the aesthetics of labels began to be considered, thanks to the techniques offered by the printing press.
