Bon Niche means good niche, or very loosely translated “A Very Good Place”. This can mean something different to everyone, let your imagination run wild as you go through your photo files in search of your interpretation of “A Very Good Place”.


We are looking for photos, to print on wine labels, in the following categories:

  • Windows (Fenêtres)
  • Doors and entries (L’entrée)
  • Chemin (Path)
  • Arches (Voûtes)
  • Vacation Spots (Voyage)
  • Unique chairs or thrones (Une Chaise)
  • Stairs or stairwells (Escaliers)
  • Folly, architectural structures built for the ego
  • Gardens, close up or all encompassing
  • Or inspire us with a French translation of your “Very Good Place”


Selected photos will be used for labels of Bon Niche Cellars wines and will change with each vintage. Both amateur and professional photographers are welcome to participate. Photos may be submitted throughout the year and selection dates vary each bottling schedule.  Please see eligibility details for complete information.

To compete, please be sure to start with the Official Rules.  You can submit your photos electronically using the word document file, or print the pdf document and mail your entry to us.  All three documents are available below.  If you have trouble downloading them please give us a call or send an email.  Bon Chance!
