Our etched and hand-painted Holiday Wines are one of our most treasured traditions, a way for us to give our Wine Club Members exclusive access to rare wines in festive, one-of-a-kind bottlings. Each year we develop new artful designs, many of them inspired by the holiday celebrations we enjoy in our own home.

The traditional herald of Christmas, our Joyful Angel is here to bring Joy to the World. Secretly, we think she’s happy to get out of tree-topper duty and on to a wine bottle!

On the Vine

This delectable blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Syrah displays a rich core of blackberry, cassis, dark plum and black cherry flavors framed by lovely brown spice notes of cinnamon, cardamom and clove. Aged in new and seasoned oak barrels – mostly French - the Cabernet-dominated blend shows classic oak characteristics of sandalwood and vanilla and a hint of lightly browned marshmallow. With soft yet structured tannins and a fleshy, generous mid-palate, this is the essential holiday wine, offering a warm, glowing sensation that will persist until the last candle is blown out.

Our Etched Holiday Wines are a year-round labor of love. Watch the behind-the-scenes views of the craftsmanship that goes in to each and every etched bottle.  See the entire process - from growing grapes and winemaking, to barrel-aging in the caves, to bottling, to creating the art stencils, to etching, to hand-painting...and lastly the final touches - all to bring you a beautiful bottle for your holiday celebration.
