ABOUT PRAIRIE WIND CELLARS
Prairie Wind Cellars is a modern midwestern wine brand created for Grandstand to showcase their product capabilities and retail expertise in the wine industry.
Inspired by the idyllic scenery of the Midwest and some of its most familiar iconography, the Prairie Wind Cellars brand was developed to appeal to modern wine drinkers who desire a genuine, down-to-earth experience that’s full of flavor.
PRIMARY BRAND: Prairie Wind Cellars
The primary brand was created to provide a consistent aesthetic and to introduce the unifying elements that are carried across the individual brands. Simple, clean iconography, a playfully sophisticated font and a vibrant, natural color palette give the brand its modern, cheerful character.
Each brand is inspired by a different Midwestern landscape at a particular time of day, evoking a unique sentiment that reflects the flavor notes of each style — a refreshing and breezy rosé; a sunny, vibrant chardonnay; and a simple yet elegant cabernet.
