When we first floated the idea of a Vaillancourt Christmas wine back in April to collectors attending our annual Collector’s Weekend, the response was positive (the fact that we did a taste test may have helped). After months of preparation, we’re excited to be able to announce the first ever Vaillancourt Christmas wine! We will be unveiling the wine officially during our “uncorking” event at our retail space in Sutton, MA with a lecture, “The Story Behind… The Vaillancourt Wine” on Friday, Sept 28th at 7:00 pm EST (LIVE on Facebook, too!).
The wine, a 2016 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, was created with the help from our friends at Latitude Beverages to source a family-owned vineyard out of California’s Sonoma County. This wine is full-bodied and textured with luscious aromas of blackcurrant, cherries, mocha, vanilla, and cedar… a perfect wine to enjoy during the Christmas season. Created as a limited edition, each bottle is hand numbered, like our chalkware collectibles!
Helping to countdown the retail release of our wine (which will be available both in our retail gallery in Sutton and online through Latitude Beverages), we’re trying something new: an online auction for the #1 signed bottle! Because the completed sale will be processed through Latitude Beverages, the bottle can be shipped anywhere in the continental US.
Legal Disclaimer: The winner of the online auction wins the rights to purchase the #1 bottle of wine through Latitude Beverage’s website at the winning price bid. The winner will need to provide proof of legal age upon completing the purchase online through the distributor’s website. The bottle will be shipped the first week of October and is not available at Vaillancourt Folk Art’s retail store in Sutton, MA.
