I use glabels. It is not fancy but I can set it up to print 30 labels on an a4 sheet. I only use the labels to id the bottles and not to impress and it is good enough for that.

Looking for a good cab-sav/merlot wine kit

I have been making wine from kits for a little over a year. I have tried almost a dozen commercial grape juice concentrate kits.
