Wine Batches and Prepping for the Holiday Season It's already time to think about those holiday gifts! Confession: We started our 2019 Christmas shopping months ago. We like to grab little odds and ends as they go on sale throughout the year (hello, Prime Day!) We don’t HAVE to do it, but it’s just so much easier that way! It’s probably fair to say we’re not the only gift-hoarders in the greater Denver area. In fact, I bet a lot of you have a secret stash as well. If you haven’t been looking forward to December, it’s time to start. Why? Because creating your own custom holiday wine needs to be started months in advance. If you want to gift your loved ones with your own special blend this holiday season, it’s time to begin the prep! Here’s what you need to know: Custom Wine Making Experience As part of our custom wine making experience, you will choose from a list of almost 75 wines from all over the world. Working side-by-side with our expert winemakers, you can create your own perfect blend and even gain some knowledge on the science of wine making – sure to impress cranky relatives at your holiday dinner. Once your blend is complete, you’ll have to wait eight full weeks for the finished product (that’s why it’s so important to get started early!) In the meantime, you can get started on your custom label – and feel free to stop in at any time to check on the progress of your wine! Custom labels You don’t want to gift someone a custom bottle of wine without a custom label, right? Of course not! That would just be silly. Need some inspiration? You can check out some of the labels our customers have made in the past by viewing our label gallery. Don’t worry, no idea is too crazy! We’ve seen it all. Note: We need your design at least two weeks prior to your bottling date ... so don’t take too long coming up with the perfect design! A Bottling Party! A bottling party is, of course, the best part of the entire process! It’s that amazing, wonderful day when you get to finally package up your custom wine and take it home. It can be a solo event (if you want to keep your blend a secret) or a big shebang where you invite everyone you know. It’s your party (just be sure to let us know if you have more than two people coming to help you out). Now what are you waiting for?
