Darius II is the crown jewel of Darioush Winery's portfolio of über premium wines. Each vintage presents a new piece of pre-muslim, Persian art to adorn the label. The quality and precision of this art, some of it well over 2000 years old, is nothing less than amazing. The creation of the pressure-sensitive paper label for the 750ml. bottles is our first priority. Auston Design Group works very closely with our favorite die maker, DeCreval Dies, of Napa, CA, to create the highly detailed emboss and/or deboss dies. The labels are then masterfully printed and finished by Collotype Label, also of Napa.
The three and six liter large-format bottle designs are based on the look and feel of the paper label. Some modifications are often necessary to accommodate the process. Napa based, Etched Images, etches and hand-paints each bottle. While very similar, no two are exactly alike and the final product is next to impossible to walk past without touching it.
