Good for the land, good for your glass.

At its essence, Lander-Jenkins is the story of the land and the family behind a wine. Before establishing roots in California’s wine country, the Jenkins family ranched and farmed in Lander, Nevada—establishing an agricultural style based on doing things “the natural way” which carries over to their vineyards today. The refreshed packaging needed an identity which reflected this history and tradition. Respecting these passions required presenting the nostalgia and unvarnished aesthetic of their pioneer beginnings—but in a contemporary and inviting way. The product’s heritage is communicated not only by the engraving of a farmer transporting his harvest—but also through the use of quirky, Neo-Victorian typography. The austere approach to typography, a predominantly silver color palette and plenty of unused space results in a restrained but impactful presence on the shelf.
