Weingut Script Flourish is a decorative display font with high contrasts, perfectly drawn to the tiniest details. The font is trimmed to fairly large font sizes and is highly suitable for chapter titles or book jackets as well as Headlines, Invitations and wine labels, although also impressing with an astounding legibility in small typesettings. Inspired by the hand drawn Blätterschrift from the 19th century Mettenleiter’s Schriftenmagazin, its basic structure is related to the English Script. The creative process started in summer 2009 and after 600 hours of work, over a 2 year period, Weingut now unfolds to reveal all its charms.

Please make sure to use an application that supports the layering of text (two-coloured capitals) and OpenType features (contextual alternates). Be aware if you intend to combine Weingut Script Flourish and Weingut Flourish that these two do not go together. The floral outlines differ slightly and inaccurate overlaps will be the end result.
