“…it’s a living thing. I like to think about what was going on the year the grapes were growing; how the sun was shining; if it rained. I like to think about all the people who tended and picked the grapes. And if it’s an old wine, how many of them must be dead by now. I like how wine continues to evolve, like if I opened a bottle of wine today it would taste different than if I’d opened it on any other day, because a bottle of wine is actually alive. And it’s constantly evolving and gaining complexity.” -Miles in Sideways 2004
Miles said it right. Wine is alive! This speech, however, could also be a perfect metaphor to marriage. And as any living thing must begin, the wedding is the start of an amazing journey together. At Northwest Cellars we acknowledge the importance of such an occasion. We’ve designed and hand-labeled thousands of custom wine bottles since our inception in 2004 while giving each order a personal touch. Our team’s goal has always been to provide custom bottles of high-quality, award-winning wines at an affordable price and combining them with artistic imagination to create unique gifts. Our wines consistently win awards in competitions all across the country, often beating out wines that are considerably more expensive and much better known.
There is no better way to celebrate the special day than with a personal, caring, and gracious wedding or anniversary wine gift. While having the option of buying wine for your guests, or surprising the happy couple with a treasured keepsake, we’re confident you’ll find the best way to express your joy. Wine ages and adapts as the relationship grows and adapts. It represents patience, hard work, dedication, and good health; which are all essential to making any relationship last. While you’re here, check out our extensive gallery of custom wedding labels we’ve done over the years. We’ve helped lots of happy couples find the perfect way to celebrate their day. Here are a few examples of happy customers and what they had to say:
“I just gotta tell ya, we really are enjoying your wines. It is sentimental, of course, to drink from a bottle w/your kid’s wedding photo on it, but your stuff is truly great tasting. Thanks for the fine products and the fine service.”
“A friend of ours brought a gift case to our 10th anniversary celebration, a picture of my wife and I with the caption “10 Years of Meritage”. That wine performed meritorious service for our 30 guests and was reported “missing in action” by the end of the night. Bravo!”
