"After 11 years it was time for a label refresh," said John Giguiere, co-owner of Matchbook Wine Company in Zamora, Calif. "We are constantly looking at ways to improve the quality of our vineyards and wines. Tweaking the appearance of our packaging highlights our innovative focus and keeps us current with consumer trends."

The Dunnigan Hills AVA winery's full-paneled, burnt-edged label has been replaced by a wrap label highlighting the estate offerings.

Giguiere said the new label is recognizably Matchbook, with "a modern twist." The vertical logo has been flipped to horizontal and highlighted by a red foil flame. The burnt notch on the upper right remains as an homage to the original burned edge. The label has a "matchstick x" boarder treatment and the "Estate Bottled" designation is prominently displayed.
