The funny wine bottles for Tyrrell's Lost Block Semillon wines feature comical illustrations of a man in search of grapes, telling the story how the wine came to be. Lost Block Semillon was developed as its own label after "an impending storm forced the Tyrrell's vineyard crew to abandon a prized block of Hunter semillon to pick less storm resilient grapes." However, the grapes were picked in the days following the storm and the taste was so remarkable, it was bottled and packaged as its own line.

Each of the different types of wine features a comical caricature ilustrated by Jonathan Cusick, showing scenes from an Indiana Jones-like hunt across various parts of the vinyard.
