CASE STUDY: CAPE JAFFA WINERY “THE SET”
Taking its cues from the coastal location of the Cape Jaffa winery and vineyards, The Set range of wines is sure to make waves, barrelling out a sense of fun and seaside lifestyle, while resonating with the biodynamic foundations of Cape Jaffa.
The slick surfboard shaped label is printed on Collotype’s Enviro Label™ recycled uncoated paper, harmonising well with the Cape Jaffa commitment to sustainability and balance. And with more labels to come, the swell is building with the next phase of The Set in the pipeline.
