Erie Shores Vinyard

Erie Shores is a family run vineyard on Lake

Erie’s North Shore. They create quality award

winning wines at affordable prices. The owners’ son Andrew has joined the team and ensures a bright future for the business.

As competition grows, it is important for Erie

Shores to upgrade their branding and packaging, accurately representing the wines they create. 

One possible direction is to combine community passion with the business’ identity. By working with local artists, each bottle could be given a unique character while using a text layout template to provide continuity across the entire product range. 

There is also an opportunity to do cross promotions with the artists and introduce Erie Shores wines to the artist’s clients. This would be done through print, web and social media as well as combined events and promotions.
