Inspiration can be found in surprising places.
On a visit to an ancient winery in Croatia, a humble
ventilation grill is now transformed into a luxury marque.
It embraces the neck of every Tolj bottle.

ERNEST TOLJ

BRAND CREATION, IDENTITY DESIGN,
STRUCTURAL DESIGN

CHALLENGE

Great design needs a great client and we had two! Ivana and Ernest Tolj, as passionate about design as they are about making wine. They set the bar high for this exclusive wine ‘Ernest Tolj’. Our challenge was to create the bespoke identity for the bottle presentation, box and collateral.

SOLUTION

On a visit to the Dingač vineyards,
our photograph of a decorative grille in
the old cellars became the inspiration for
the identity.  It now forms a graceful silver neck collar and is layered through the giftbox. It contrasts with a simple card label tied in leather, loose around the neck.

The Ernest Tolj signature is stamped in silver foil and each wine simply referenced. The bottle lies wrapped in printed tissue paper,
nestling in a sleek, sensual bespoke box.

“Congratulations once again, thank you
for the beautiful design, Lewis Moberly
always makes my day!!!”
