Label It Art

Only enologists, sommeliers, traders and other wine experts will judge wines in the AWC Vienna International Wine Challenge this summer, but anyone can help choose the world's most artistic wine label for 2007.

Competition representatives chose 10 finalists from 4,260 initial entries, and have posted them on the AWC Vienna Web site. The site doesn't indicate what criteria was used by judges to select the finalists, but they clearly favored the modern and abstract to the traditional and concrete. None of the labels is from the United States. Two each are from Austria, Italy and Chile, while Portugal, New Zealand, Greece and Spain are represented by one label each. Take a look; do you think maybe the label with all the ants is on a picnic wine?

Voters have until June 25 to cast their ballot. Just one vote per person is allowed.
