Cake Wines has announced the winner of the 2013 Archi-bottle Prize, the annual contest that embodies the winery's innovative approach of engaging with new generation wine drinkers.

The Cake Archi-Bottle Prize is a search for the next collaborating artist who will have their art appear on one of the winery’s summer releases.

This year’s winner, Melbourne-born artist Sean Edward Whelan, will have his piece "Nothing Sacred" featured on the bottle of the Cake Wines 2013 Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc (pictured), set to be released into stores in November. Whelan also picks up a $2000 prize and a year’s supply of wine.

Cake also gave honourable mentions to artists Miranda Skoczek, Luschia Porter and 2013 Archibald Prize Winner Del Kathryn Barton, who were runners up. 

From a pool of over 350 entries, a top 30 were selected and can be seen on Cake’s Facebook and Pinterest pages. [continued below]
