Ornellaia and Chateau Mouton Rothschild turn to leading artist for unique labels

The wine estates for Ornellaia 2015 and Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2016 have commissioned artist William Kentridge to create unique labels for the wines.

Kentridge, considered to be one of South Africa’s finest contemporary artists, created the labels for the 10th edition of Tuscany-based Ornellaia’s Vendemmia d’Artista project.

The labels, which are specifically designed to convey the character classic to the 2015 vintage – expressed as Il Charisma – are reportedly already coveted by collectors across the globe.

Liv-Ex, the London wine-market performance index, ranks Ornellaia as one of the ten most sought-after wines in the world.

Kentridge also designed the label for Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2016. These feature a vibrant parade of festive, primal Bacchantes. The French Maison will officially launch the wine this month.
