My meads (not too many- I prefer wine) are in the basement in dark green bottles. The clear bottles are long gone, I don't have even ONE left with a label. I don't have anything nearly as pretty as summersoltice's! Even my wines aren't labeled or corks shrink-wrapped until I give them away. Most of my wines are dark, too, so they are pretty in a glass but not so interesting in the bottle. I bottled much of my crabapple/honey wine in clear bottles, but even those are about gone!
What I have to remember to do is take pictures when I pull them out for gifts, or to take pictures of the wine/mead/cider in the glass. I never think of it until it's too late!
I'm very impressed with the cool labels and pictures that others post.
