Roman architecture, right on your wine rack. Lavernia&Cienfuegos designed these absolutely stunning wine bottles that are works of art by themselves, taking inspiration from the wine’s Latin name.
“LAUDUM is the genitive plural of Laus, the Latin word meaning praise, glory, fame. For such a classic, Latin name, with strong Roman overtones, we have designed this bottle with references to columns of the Lonic or Corinthian period with characteristics from ancient Roman temple architecture. The relationship between viticulture and the temple is age-old. The column is part of the temple, it rises towards the sky, it is history and art, as is wine.”
While the shape and look of the bottle is immediately recognizable as a Roman column, the bottle is black instead of eggshell white. This is a striking difference that takes the architecture and gives it a bit of a modern, edgy twist. Gold text and a gold laurel wreath ooze opulence, situating the wine as a high-end choice that is just as flavorful as it is beautiful.
