  • “Smallest brief in the world, from an impossibly vague client, turned into one of the best ideas we have ever seen”.

    Duncan Forsyth, Partner
    Mount Edward Winery, New Zealand, September 10, 2002
  • “They’re outrageous! They’re fun! They’ll drive you crazy! They are brilliant! Brandever is the best investment we ever made for our business”.

    Cher Watkins, Proprietor
    Dirty Laundry Vineyard, September 10, 2002
  • “With 7 Double Golds, Brandever just knocked (the judges) socks off”.

    Chandler Moore, Assistant Director
    San Francisco International Wine Competition, September 10, 2002
  • "One thing we appreciate about the Naramata Bench is its collection of strong-willed characters, which results in a wide array of styles and ideas that propels what must surely be the province's most determined of small regions. Part of that drive comes from Bernie Hadley Beauregard (of Blasted Church, Laughing Stock, Therapy, Dirty-off the bench-Laundry fame and who knows what else?), who happily feeds the bunch with all the irreverence and upbeat creativity they can handle."

    Tim Pawsey
    The Vancouver Courier, September 10, 2002
  • Halleluiah!

    Evelyn Campbell
    Blasted Church Vineyards, September 10, 2002
  • "In one fell swoop, Brandever has shaken up the Honey Category, and have given new energy to our apiary. Bravo!"

    Gilbert Wolfe
    Honey Bunny Inc., September 10, 2002
  • “Even before the formal September 10 launch of its wines, Laughing Stock Vineyards has become an instant cult winery, with most of its initial 800 cases already pre-sold. The buzz around this new Naramata Bench winery is widespread. (…)Some university commerce department should do a case study of this winery. Many other new wineries could benefit by learning what it takes to launch as a top-flight producer straight out of the gate.”

    John Schreiner, Reporter
    Planit Vancouver, September 10, 2002
  • The Naramata Bench Wineries barrel tasting event at Whistler Cornucopia declared "Most-Clever Marketing Scheme in 2004"

    Juliana Hayes, Wine Columnist

  • "Working with Bernie is like having your own personal brand champion.  He's been a leading force behind all the branding decisions behind getting our winery project off the ground.  The impact on our business has been huge!"

    Cynthia Enns
    Laughing Stock Vineyards, September 10, 2002
  • "Since the winery's name change, bottles have been flying out the door, thanks also  in part to the attractive label."

    Beppi Crosariol
    The Globe and Mail, September 10, 2002
  • "It's a line that's grabbed the attention of wine writers and wine lovers more accustomed to staid, sparse, oft-elitist and confusing labels. Recently, the Megalomaniac wines grabbed best of show for its labels at the prestigious San Francisco International Wine Competition.



    Niagara is just the latest wine region to pick up the trend. (...)"
    Monique Beech
    St Catharines Standard, September 10, 2002

    Tania Fera-VanGent
    Niagara Interiors, September 10, 2002
  • Pour travaille avec le président de Brandever Strategy, il faut avoir l'esprit ouvert. À l'opposé de l'approche traditionelle et minimaliste des vignobles concurrents, ce consultant choisit une approche audacieuse.
    Francis Plourde
    Commerce Magazine, September 10, 2002

  • "There's something very standout-ish about [their] designs and names and labels, and so say all–consumers and art judges. And surely it all translates into bold, black bottom lines at the end of the season."
    Jurgen Gothe
    The Georgia Straight, September 10, 2002
  • "Megalomaniac wines from Ontario's John Howard have stormed the design world with their iconic man-in-a-bowler-hat labels and cute design devices."
    Gordon Stimmell
    Toronto Star, September 10, 2002
  • "[Brandever's] creative genius is going to give my company an immeasurable edge moving forward and I am deeply appreciative."
    David Geen
    Jealous Fruits, September 10, 2002

  • "I love everything about Blasted Church, especially the diversity, the story behind the name, the Midnight Service, and the label art(...)"

    Jurgen Gothe
    The Georgia Straight, September 10, 2002
  • "Their swirly label design, reminiscent of something in the Guggenheim, surely deserves of an award for best new label."
    Mari Kane
    Everything Wine, September 10, 2002
  • "Most Entertaining BC Wine Labels - Gotta be Blasted Church. Recently revampedwith Claymation-type figures, they just keep on getting funnyer and more clever."

    Judi Skinner
    Dirty Laundry Vineyards, September 10, 2002
  • "Talk about a crowd pleaser! This vibrant [Small Talk Vineyards] red with the chatty label gets noticed wherever it goes"
