New look for face of 12 Bright Vines

Alpine Observer - - News - By VANESSA BURGESS

A NEW- look la­bel will be un­veiled at the of­fi­cial launch of Bright P12 Col­lege’s 12 Bright Vines 2017 this Fri­day night.

Now in its fourth year of pro­duc­tion, the col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the col­lege and Ringer Reef had a lit­tle tester at the re­cently held com­edy night and re­ceived some very pos­i­tive feed­back.

This year pri­mary stu­dents in grades three and four helped pick just over 400kgs of grapes from the schools vines and VCAL co­or­di­na­tor Libby Dean said the qual­ity and quan­tity of the grapes con­tin­ued to im­prove.

“Since har­vest­ing first com­menced four years ago, the amount of grapes we are pick­ing is con­tin­u­ing to grow and like ev­ery­where we had a later sea­son than nor­mal,” she said.

“VCAL stu­dents worked with Mark Holmes, Bruce and An­nie’s son, who has moved back from Mil­dura to take over Ringer Reef.

“We also had Mick Dal­bosco as­sist­ing us again and our chem­istry stu­dents an­a­lysed sul­fur diox­ide con­tent and al­co­hol con­tent as part of their chem­istry course at Ringer Reef, so it has cer­tainly been a col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­fort.”

Bright P12 Col­lege stu­dents were also en­cour­aged to sub­mit a la­bel de­sign for the 2017 vin­tage and Ms Dean said five en­tries were sub­mit­ted.

“This year’s win­ner was year 11 stu­dent Elly Jenk­ins, whose de­sign stood out to the judges,” she said.

Elly cre­ated the wine la­bel dur­ing work ex­pe­ri­ence in term two with Winding Road De­sign Stu­dio’s Ali­cia Mar­shall.

“Dur­ing my time there I be­came fa­mil­iar with photo shop and other de­sign soft­ware and to find in­spi­ra­tion I took pho­tos on­site at Ringer Reef and cre­ated an in­spi­ra­tion board,” she said.

The photo I took of the view at Ringer Reef is used in the la­bel and I used the moun­tains in the pho­tos and put it into grey scale, elim­i­nat­ing any colour.

“I was in­spired by the name ‘12 Bright Vines’ to use vines in the im­age and the end re­sult was some geo­met­ric vines which I think gave the la­bel a very mod­ern look.

“I re­ally loved putting the la­bel to­gether and was over the moon to hear that my wine la­bel won.”

The of­fi­cial launch will kick off at 5.30pm this Fri­day at Ringer Reef, Pore­punkah and of­fi­cial pro­ceed­ings will com­mence at 6pm.
