Clear and Effective signage is crucially important in order to navigate the 600 acres that is home to the Rathfinny Wine Estate.  The quality of the signage needs to match the high quality of the brand. The craftsmanship and durability of the signage is key given the scale of the project and the harsh coastal environment.  The Rathfinny Wine Estate is located three miles from the sea on the south-facing slopes of South Downs in East Sussex. The various crafted signage elements unobtrusively mark the landscape and bring together the identity of the Estate.
