The Ravensworth Estate label was developed to showcase the wines grown and produced by Bryan and Jocelyn Martin on their farm in the cool climate Canberra district of Murrumbateman.
A chance discovery of an old book on baronetage lead to a conversation around what the Ravensworth coat of arms would look like – slightly grotesque, vines, withering snakes, flies, insects and a severed pigs head dripping with
gold blood? Sure, why not?
Working closely with Bryan and Jocelyn, the concept for the Ravensworth coat of arms was slowly and gently pulled into shape – a bit like their approach to making wine. The final illustration was then beautifully illustrated by Swindler & Swindler.
A celebration of the client’s authentic relationship with wine and food which, to quote Bryan is ‘entwined, joyous and slightly nervy’.
