While recently vacationing in Napa with some girlfriends, I got to enjoy some of my favorite guilty pleasures - wine, wine and more wine, the spa, lounging and laughing with friends and amazing food in one of the most gorgeous and serene destinations. It was hard leaving all this behind, but the idea of enjoying my favorite wines back home through wine of the month clubs was pretty exciting- plus, who doesn’t love getting packages in the mail. There is no doubt that anyone who enjoys wine in the slightest would love getting such a gift for a special occasion. However, no wine of the month club could compare to the creative and romantic gift idea I came across while at my favorite vineyard, O’Brien Estates, which combines love and of course, wine.
One of the unique elements O’Brien Estate offers their guests is a set of wines which tell a story of a deepening relationship between 2 people. The story is told through the names of each wine and the poetry on the back of each label written by either Bart or Barb O’Brien.
Barb and Bart decided to tell a story of a deepening relationship between 2 people by naming a series of wines after different phases of a relationship. They took turns writing poetry for the back labels. These wines are packaged in a 3 bottle gift set called the Romantic Trio and a 5 bottle set called the Romantic Portfolio.
“Our goal is to touch your heart before the wine touches your lips…”
Here is some of the poetry from our Romantic Portfolio of wines:
(when you actually meet your love)
When our eyes met
My heart said hello
Are you the one for whom I long?
Each Romantic Profile wine set comes with a plaque you can engrave with the recipients names, date and small note, making this a perfect wedding gift when you want to give something memorable and creative. These gift sets start at $249 and are available for purchase here.
