    Default Can anyone identify this wine label?

    Found a bottle at work. Has a little angry yellow bird sitting on barbed wire. Guessing itís a wine bottle but could be a malt liquor maybe??

    Picture? You can use vivino app, take a picture of it and it will recognize it for you.

    The total photo is too blurry to ID the era it was produced.

    The label appears it was likely a local brew from an era gone by. Perhaps it was a product from a local still of "non authorized" liquor but in a nice packaging instead of a jar. The barb wire causes me to think what ever was in it had a bite. All speculation on my part.

    If there are bubbles in the glass that makes it likely Pre-WW2. If the seam along the side stops before the top it was a 2 piece process where the top portion was added to the bottle portion. If I recall correct that was no longer normal production by the late 1950's. By the 60's bottles were all produced in one monolithic piece.

    If there was no seam at all that would be a blown bottle. Later some were blown into molds. Some really high end liquors still are. But a seam is seen in the top photo.

    From what I see in the photo my guess would be a small winery that placed a (long gone) paper label over the long portion of the bottle. From what I can tell in the top photo I'd say the bottle itself was produced in the 1960's or later.

    Here's one site that may help date the bottle itself.

    Before opening, was the entire lid (above the break and below) one piece with perforations? How long have those been utilized?

    Any time you get a funky label like that, check local breweries/wineries first.

    I cannot figure out how to post photos (figured it would be the same as the Underground, but itís not...), so hereís a link to it (Iíve no affiliation with the seller):
