Project Title: Packaging Dalva – Special Edition Vitor Matos
Client or Class Name: C. da Silva (Dalva) - www.cdasilva.pt
The Dalva brand, owned by the C. da Silva company, recognised since 1862 for its high quality Ports, has joined forces with the renowned Portuguese chef Vitor Matos to create a special edition 20 Years Tawny Port.
Vitor Matos has worked in Portugal and in Switzerland. Since 2010, he has been managing the Largo do Paço restaurant kitchen in Amarante (North Portugal), where he won and renewed his first Michelin star.
For this special blend, which is a tribute to the delicacy of the wines produced by C. da Silva, to the man and his genius and mastery, the Omdesign advertising agency has created a bottle whose labels are all silk-screen printed and a wooden bar top signed by Vitor Matos.
The packaging developed and produced by the Portuguese agency is highly differentiating, premium and “clean”. It features details of the watercolour painting “Golden Landscapes” by the chef himself, painted on the exact same day this Tawny was created. It is a tribute to the wine and vineyard culture where this unique and unmatchable nectar is produced: Port wine, from Porto.
This special edition is the result of the sensory preferences of the chef. It is also sold with a small brochure containing a selection of recipes chosen by Vitor Matos, which go perfectly with Port and Douro wines.
