First wines from Redhill Farm Estate in Kent

A London design agency, Precipice Design, has created the identity and label designs for a new English wine brand, Redhill Farm Estate.

The new ‘shield’ brand marque features the main estate building. The label designs couple both traditional and contemporary visual codes, with fine touches of UV diagonal pattern subtly echoing the vine layout.

The work has been rolled out across the website and corporate livery as well as the wines. Redhill Farm Estate in the village of Wateringbury, Kent. Its first releases are a rosé wine from 100% Rondo, granted PDO certification, and a soon to be bottled Bacchus.

Winery owner, Henry Boorman has planted 27,000 vines at Redhill. There will be limited bottlings each harvest. He comments: “We aim to craft fine natural wines at Redhill Farm Estate, adapting the traditional methods and terroir with small but catalytic innovations within winegrowing and making. We work closely with a number of research collaborators and have already seen the gains in our 2015 vintage and current crop. We are excited to be launching our first releases and very proud of the quality. Precipice have done a great job to visually capture and echo this.”

Precipice Design’s chief design officer, Miles Hawley, says: “Our branding team delved into every historical and topographical detail about Redhill Farm, Wateringbury and the surrounding areas of Kent. In creating the brand marque and the label designs, we feel we’ve captured the true essence of the terroir and of the wines. It’s our first label design for an English wine, and we look forward to the continued growth of English wines.”
