Lini Lambrusco “Labrusca”: a note on the label and name

Lini Lambrusco Labrusca — which include a white, rosé, and classic red Lambrusco — is one of our most popular labels in the U.S.

The colorful label was inspired by a label the winery created many years ago for a local food and wine festival.

Meant to evoke “a wine for the people,” the image on the hand-drawn label depicts a happy Bacchus enjoying his glass of Lambrusco.

The name Labrusca evokes the ancient name used by the Romans for wild grape varieties, vitis labrusca. To this day, the term denotes wild or naturally occurring grapes.
