well... office strategies http://logopond.com/gallery/detail/40787 entered my head, but they really aren't that similar.

@Lundeja: Thank you mate! I think that OS was inspired by the concept of the chess game (graphic/brand) and this one directly by the elements of crest/castle... *@Relevant: LOL %3B)

love it, beautiful mark. Only gripe is to separate the WineKingdom. Would you consider using a serif font?

I tried with the serifs first, but then it seems like to much is going on... Clean mark, clean elegant typography... Thanks, Paul!

Alen, since you have a green flag, IMO the base looks like an upside down T so I have been trying to figure out why it is not connected to the glass? I think the mark would be stronger if it were connected. It speaks volumes enough no need to make matters more confusing.**

@ Gvandoni, Straycloud, Ranganath: thanks a lot! :)*@ Mike: the upper part of the glass is in a form of the crest and the 'old' flag so the form of the glass reminded me on those small 'table flag' holders. I didn't want to lose the lower sharp point of it... Thanks a lot!

Although a tower it represent a castle, maybe a crown would represent a kingdom, rather than a fortress... No? Have you tried anything with the bottle?*Or maybe a burgundy drop with a castle form or reflexion? Just a friendly suggestion.

@ Mabu: thanks mate!*@ Mickey: those are all great ideas. Crown is cool, but if you take it further, remind me of the 'king' that wasn't 'hidden' in some castle/fortress. :) Sometimes we have to chose the way but I love when some logo/brand offers you options for further sub-branding. I appreciate your comment and thank you for suggestions.

I think its a little more than coincidence that you loved this logo so much: http://logopond.com/gallery/detail/40787*But i really like this logo you did

nice man. i do see that the bottom could look like an upside down t, but only after the one guy mentioned it. to fix that issue, i would maybe make the base of the glass curve up into the stem a little bit rather than it being a straight 90 degree. but i don't even see that as an issue, just a thought. i do love it though. great job.
