Spotlight: DeSante Wines

The DeSante Family understands the value and importance of a great looking label.


In fact, Robert Mondavi once told them that “the label is a feeling. It must communicate the verve of the wine.” And as a winemaker, with 25 years of experience, the DeSante’s core philosophy is to “keep it real” so a great looking (and feeling) label is central to their continued success.


That’s why the DeSante’s were an early adopter of the Digital printing platform and variable imaging, and why they have always pushed for that extra “something” to communicate the quality and personality of their brand. It’s also why they are a long-time client of Tapp Label.

By taking the time to understand the DeSante vision and needs for each and every project, we have been able to provide these wine-industry pioneers with the solutions, services, and results they need. We work with DeSante and their designers throughout the process, focused solely on delivering the absolute best results possible. From paper selection to color-matching, to increased efficiencies on-press, our expertise and experience creates a collaborative environment, enjoyable process, and a beautiful end product.


DeSante has always had a high standard for their wines, just as we do for the labels we print for them. It is a perfect partnership.

“After 4 different printing companies in the past 17 years, I have finally found the best label printer in California. Tapp Label’s employees are courteous and talented. Tapp translated my offset litho designs into digital format with superb results. The labels look better and are less expensive than before. I have no worries about color matching, embossing mistakes or quantity adjustments. They get my estimate details right every time, and they are happy to make changes when I need to adjust quantities. I am a real fan. And I am going on vacation with the money that I saved. Thanks!”
