Making Napa wines together is a source of pride for our family. When we were first designing our bottle labels, our family grabbed a quick Chinese take-out dinner. We always read our fortune cookies aloud to each other because they’re such great conversation starters. As our daughter was reading hers, she asked “Why couldn’t we put a fortune on the corks? We could call them Fortune Corkies!” Thus a new tradition was born.
Since 2002, our Fortune Corkies have generally reflected on wine, love, and following your dreams. Every year, we have a contest to select twenty Fortune Corkies that display a short quotation — 10 that pertain to that year’s All Great Things word, and 10 for the Pinot Noir and Cabernet bottles.
Keep an eye out for contest details beginning in March. In the meantime, start thinking of your favorite quote—it can be a personal quote, or a famous one (make sure it’s 24 words or less)! Because we appreciate our allocation members so much, a chosen quote provided by one of these handsome/beautiful souls will receive a magnum of Estate Cabernet Sauvignon sealed with their submitted Fortune Corkie! And of course, a chosen quote provided by a non-member will be rewarded with their Fortune Corkie, a heartfelt thank you note, and an invitation to visit the winery.
We look forward to your quotes!
