Wine with customized labels?

The Dairy Queen | Aug 1, 2005 05:09 PM

Dear 'Hounds:

I'm looking to buy a case of wine where I can design my own labels. Some of the bottles I will give as gifts; some I would like to save and drink over, say, 5 years.

1) Do you know any merchants who will provide customized labels that you would recommend? And any particular wine by that merchant that you recommend? I'm hoping to spend $10-$15 per bottle.

2) I found a place called "Signature Wines" that will customize wine labels. Has anyone had any experience with these folks? If so, do you recommend them?

3) Signature wines offers the below wine list. Are you familiar with any of these wines? Do you recommend any of them? Any that are particularly nice right now? Any that will age particularly well (or badly) in your opinion?
