“Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world,” according to Ernest Hemingway. Wine offers a great range of enjoyment and pleasure. Sharing your love of wine as a gift to others can be made more special by personalizing the wine label. Remove the label from a standard wine bottle by soaking it in warm, sudsy water and using rubbing alcohol or a commercial remover to eliminate the sticky residue. Make sure your bottle is clean and dry before putting on the new label or it will rip or bubble.
