Personalized Wine Done Right
The idea of handing out bottles of wine with personalized labels as favors is a great one, and especially appropriate for a wedding in Napa. But the options are rarely ideal—personalized labels can veer too close to cheesy, plus the wine they adorn is often subpar. So we were thrilled to see and sample the new personalization service offered by Beaulieu Vineyard, myweddingmywine.com, in Napa Valley. The tasteful, customized designs mimic the vineyard’s already smart everyday labels, and the wines themselves are delicious. The labels are free; Beaulieu Vineyard’s Century Cellars wine (choose from Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon) retails for around $10.99 per bottle, and is available at most fine wine retailers, including Beverages & More.
