How to make a wine label - Canva

Design your personal vintage

No matter what style of wine you are – red, white, light, full-bodied, or bubbly, Canva can help you get your wine label design right. And if all great design starts with a great concept, then our beautifully designed wine-themed labels are there to get you going.

Our drag-and-drop design tool means you can also customize your label as much – or as little – as you like! Choose complementary fonts to create an ornate, classically themed design inspired by Old World wine labels or maybe go for something altogether more funky and fun. Use Canva’s drag and drop design tools to create a design that reflects your personal vintage.

And you’re all done! All that’s left will be to celebrate and raise a glass to your newly labeled wine – cheers!


The most common wine bottle label size is 3.5 inches wide x 4 inches tall. For smaller bottles, go for 2 x 3, 3 x 2 or 3 x 3. The right size will depend on the type of wine bottle you’re labeling, so print and test out a mock-label first.

Wine labels should have:

  • a colorful or otherwise eye-catching background
  • the wine company logo and tagline
  • the name of the wine
  • the location of the vineyard
  • the website of the company
  • the ABV
  • the year the wine was produced

The back of the label contains more details like the company address and government warning.

After you’ve designed your wine bottle label, you can load some label paper into the printer and print your designs onto them. Be sure to let the labels dry completely and let the wine bottles come to room temperature before handling.
