Label

When buying or selling wine, the label plays an important role. Expensive and rare wines are coveted collector's items. If the label has been damaged, stained, faded or has glue stains, the wine will bring less on the market. The label can likewise provide clues as to how the wine was stored. For example, if the label is faded and stained, it may indicate a very humid or poorly ventilated cellar.
