With a simple answer. No. In lack of a clear cut reason to file WITH logo, then word/logo trademarks should be filed as words only.

Unless the logo is going to be used alone (without words) to represent the brand, like the Pierre Jouet flowers or the Dom Perignon shield, then words only make more sense long term because the odds are that your logo will change.

It is very common for a word/logo combination trademark registration to find itself 3/5/10 years later (at renewal time) using a different version of the word/logo combo.

In most countries, failure to use the trademark exactly as it was registered makes that trademark vulnerable to cancellation. What this means is, that if you register your wine trademark with a logo, then you need to use that logo in your labels and advertising always and forever. To not use the exact same word/logo combination, is to weaken your trademark.

In USA, for example, your renewal will be rejected if your wine label shows these differences:

The words are now in Calibri font instead of Arial

The words are now underneath the logo instead of above

The farm now has a lake.

An amendment or possibly even new filing would be required, increasing your long term trademark maintenance costs.

Stylized letters, such as a unique font/color of words only should never be filed. If your trademark is words only, why lock yourself into a single font/size/format/color ?

In most countries, the strength of the filing of a word/logo combination is primarily on the word portion. There are occasions, however, in some countries, when the word/logo combination can be used in a strategy to differentiate your trademark from something similar already in the trademark process.

When budget allows, the best strategy is to file 2 trademarks:

1)      words only with no specified color/size/font/format

2)      then file the logo separately

This strategy protects your accumulated rights on the word portion of your trademark (your brand name). If your logo does change, you only have to re-file the logo portion at renewal time, and your word portion grows stronger with each passing year.

Generally, a trademark is a virtually perceptible sign such as name, words, label, symbol or logo which is legally registered. This trademark represents a particular organization, company, product or service to distinguish it from other companies or products. For instance, there are many companies which produce mobile phones but they all should have their own unique names, symbols, designs of brand and slogans. Every famous company or organization has a unique brand name and trademark of its own. This is because, if their trademark is very general, people can use it without worrying the trademark infringement law.
