Stina wine from the island of Brač has won gold at the European Design Awards in Helsinki competition recently. It is already a seventh award for this unique Croatian wine brand, even though it has only recently been introduced to the market. Besides the award for the best wine packaging in Europe, Stina has been awarded bronze at the prestige international competition Art Directors Club New York only a month ago.
Stina’s pošip was also graded the best white wine according to The Wine Gang at the recently held London International Wine Fair where it has gained interest from the British distributors, and the wine is already present at the German market. Stina is also holder of title “The best packaging for Croatian product/series – wine” at this year’s Cropak competition, and the awards for “The most inspirational idea” and “The best art direction” at this year’s IdejaX competition.
Fifty percent of the London International Wine Fair visitors have stopped at our stall intrigued by the wine’s packaging label, says Ivica Kovačević from Jako vino winery, after they have tasted it, and in the end the wine has finished as the third best graded white wine at the Fair. Stina is a joint project of agencies Brandoctor and Bruketa&Žinić OM.
