Wine Bottle Submission Guidelines

While every image will be carefully edited, it is still important that you consider the following things when submitting your bottle.

ON THE GLASS:

  • check for any serial numbers or bottle markings, especially near the bottom of the glass
  • choose bottles with a seam that runs down the side as viewed facing the label
  • while each bottle will be cleaned before being photographed, check to make sure the bottle has not been in contact with any spray or coating which may leave a film on the glass
  • avoid submitting bottles with a wrinkle on the foil cap

ON THE LABEL:

  • make sure the label is positioned correctly (not too low or high, or crooked)
  • label should be free of any scuff marks or tears

ON THE NECK:

  • with foil closures, make sure it is smooth and does not have any wrinkles or seams
  • if the cap includes text or graphics, make sure those are clearly visible and lined up with the main label
