Give the Gift of Handcrafted Quality:
Christmas At Blackwood Lane Winery
“Christmas time! That man must be a misanthrope indeed, in whose breast something like a jovial feeling is not roused - in whose mind some pleasant associations are not awakened - by the recurrence of Christmas.” Charles Dickens expresses so eloquently the spirit of Christmas in those lines. However, they also accurately express the spirit of Blackwood Lane Winery, as their motto suggests: Bonus Vita Et Bonus Amici (Good Life and Good Friends).
Indeed, Blackwood Lane Winery is no place for misanthropes, a fact that visitors discover upon entering the gates leading up to the winery. To echo the great Dickens, spending time at Blackwood Lane evokes “jovial feelings” and “pleasant associations are...awakened.” Luckily, Carlos Lee, owner of Blackwood Lane, has come up with some wonderful ways in which you can spread those feelings to your loved ones this Christmas, with the creation of some truly joyous gift ideas!
Triple Wine Boxes ($150)
This gift will leave your friends and family with visions of world-class wine dancing in their heads! Featuring half-size bottles of The Referènce, Alliànce and Portànce, this triple wine box is the perfect gift for those who have yet to experience the joy that is Blackwood Lane’s hand-crafted perfection in a bottle. Elegantly packaged in a custom Blackwood Lane wooden box (complimentary), it truly makes a perfect yuletide present!
2014 Reserve Merlot ($68.00)
Forget store-bought, mass-produced wines this year! Treat your loved ones instead to a truly incredible wine experience! They’ll be impressed with the newly released 2014, Reserve Merlot, made with love by Carlos!
Only a small quantity of this bold and complex 2014 Merlot was released. It has developed tertiary aromas of stewed dark plums, cassis and chocolate with pronounced aromas of sweet vanilla and violets, and a luscious, full body of abundant fruit providing rich layers of ripe black plums, black cherries, sweet baking spices, vanilla and coffee. There are limited quantities of this superb vintage, so you don’t want to wait to order your bottles!
Wine Gift Baskets ($95.00 to $125.00)
If you’re anything like me, you appreciate the time-saving goodness that gift baskets provide! However, these are no ordinary run-of-the-mill baskets! Curated personally by Blackwood Lane’s GM, Kimberley Collins, each basket contains the highest quality products. In addition to Blackwood Lane’s fine wine, Kimberley has included organic pistachio cream spread, organic reduced balsamic vinegars, artichoke spread, Blackwood Lane’s own wine jellies. You can order pre-prepared baskets or have Kimberley custom create one just for you.
