Meristem Wines is an urban focused wine brand started by two brothers, each of which have winery day jobs. The name is scientific in nature and the brothers each have a college degree in organic chemistry or enology. The brothers had a somewhat modern vision for the label, so we took that as our starting point.

Oregon is very well known for it’s production of Hazelnuts. With an initial name selected that later proved unavailable for use, the name Meristem was chosen. But we had already chosen to do research into cell structure visual, fractals, etc. This design is based on electron microscope imagery of the cell structure of a hazelnut. The design in clean, contemporary and aimed at an urban market. The bottles are left with no capsule or closure of any kind, both for aesthetic as well as environmental reasons.
