I've been holding onto this bottle of 2006 Coppola Encyclopedia Tempranillo for a couple of years. The wine itself was really only suitable for cooking, but I love the bottle because it has a representation of the resveratrol molecule molded into the side.
This process probably requires a bottle with an adhesive plastic label. A sure sign that the label is suitable is is that parts of it are transparent.
If you're going to cut your bottle, do so before attempting to etch a design on it, as the cutting process is considerably more failure-prone than etching.
