Our wines— many of which are award-winning—are handcrafted by our Winemaker and priced for extraordinary value. There are no other wines like ours on earth. That is a promise.

The wine is only available in exclusive limited numbers and cannot be bought in shops or online outside of Christopher’s website.

We will be tasting the Red & White, Sweet & Dry Sampler:

  • le Cadeau (Sterling Label) Semi-Seco Sparkling Wine
  • Family Ranch Lineage
  • Joy Cellars 2019 Semillon

Please allow a short break to cleanse the palate before proceeding to the next wine.

  • Gemme Cellars 2019 Merlot
  • Gemme Cellars 2018 Ruby

You may wish to provide snacks for your tasting – cheeses, charcuterie etc

Any other benefits?

As the host, you will receive discounted wine, and for every 12 bottles sold as a result of this tasting, you would receive another bottle for $4.99 plus other benefits.

Please note….

In order to allow for shipping and to ensure all our attendees receive their wine in time for the event on December 11th, we can only accept orders until 2pm CDT on December 1st.

If ordering from outside Texas, we will need to check state rules to ensure we can ship to your state.
