The distinctive design of OVØ suggests that we are in front of an exclusive limited edition of outstanding natural wines. The bottle conveys the key elements that make OVØ a remarkable range of wines: biodynamic and artisanal production with fermentation in egg-shaped tanks, astral constellations and lunar phases, and millenary Greco-Roman heritage.

While the typography evokes the archaic greek stone engraving, the seamless circular vortex layout recalls the captivating pattern decoration of the ancient amphoras. Star constellations and the Moon's phases inspire the midnight blue and gold colour palette. The silkscreen label design blends with the bottle's ovoidal body.

I use Adobe Illustrator for the logo and typographic composition. I aim to blend the design with the bottle into a single object. Silk screen printing is used because the egg-shaped bottle makes it impossible to stick flat paper surfaces without creating wrinkles.

OVØ cultivation is biodynamic, artisanal, and organic; it uses the astronomical calendar of the lunar phases to govern the sowing, curing, and harvesting of the Picapoll variety grapes. Afterwards, the fermentation is carried out using an egg-shaped granite tank, as the Greeks and Romans did thousands of years ago. Granite, in addition to maintaining a stable temperature and allowing micro-oxygenation of the wine, makes the wine acquire the minerality of the stone.

The peculiar egg shape of the OVØ bottle and tank allows the continuous natural vortex movement of the wine, improving its fluidity and eliminating the need for stirring or battonage.
