Alma Terra

Hood River, WA

AlmaTerra is both a word and a concept created by geologist, soil scientist and former Washington State University Professor Alan Busacca. The ideas of both terroir and love of the earth inform the process of creating their wines from the soil to the bottle, and – consequently – the brand name and imagery as well.

The logo we created for AlmaTerra is meant to simultaneously reflect both the rocky volcanic soils of the Pacific Northwest and the beauty of our home planet. The design of these labels tie those themes to the beautifully dramatic Columbia Gorge AVA.
