Saving Wine Labels

April 17, 2008

Any tips on saving wine labels? I have a bottle that I want to put to use and then afterward I would like to have the label as a keepsake. - Lima in Pawtucket, RI

The sentimental type… Lima, what an interesting curiosity you have. Saving wine labels is actually a bit tricky depending on the type of adhesive used, but the key is of course not tearing it as you remove it from the bottle. Many labels are like small works of art and can definitely become a keepsake as you’ve mentioned after the pleasure of sharing the contents with someone has long since passed.

To save wine labels you should first try your hand at the back label of the wine bottle. This will give you a pretty good idea of what you’re up against when you go after your goal. Depending on the adhesive used, you may have to soak the bottle in luke warm or even hot water to be able to separate the label from the bottle. After, about 5 - 10 minutes of soaking, remove the bottle from the water and try very carefully to peel the label off at the corners.

If that does not work, take a hair dryer of all things an hold it up to the label. The heat from the hair dryer should melt the glue sufficiently enough where you can begin to ease it off the bottle. I have used this method before in combination with a razor blade to effectively save wine labels. However, please beware that you have to be patient. Do not rush it. Take your time with it and remember to relax. Before long you will have something to keep the memory of the time spent over that perfect bottle close to heart. Cheers!!
