Be Creative and Win a Magnum of Fantesca Cab
Every so often, a winery will introduce a fun, interesting idea to engage their customers and allow them to participate with their wine. While most wineries are separating themselves from their customer base, Fantesca Winery is doing the opposite.
For the past three vintages, Fantesca has printed quotes on their wine’s corks called Fortune Corkies. Who submitted those quotes? The people who drink their wine of course. This kind of fun participation is exactly what the wine industry needs. And if your quote makes it onto the cork, you get a 1.5 liter hand bottled magnum of their 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon with your quote as the closure.
If you haven’t heard of Fantesca Winery, they are a small artisan winery in Napa Valley’s famed Spring Mountain AVA. They produce limited quantity Cabs from their estate vineyard and a Hyde Clone Carneros Chardonnay. Although they are a relatively new winery, they have received tremendous acclaim.
> “A relatively new operation, this 800 case winery on Spring Mountain dedicated to 100% Cabernet Sauvignon produced an outstanding 2002…It should age nicely for 10 – 15 years. This is an impressive start!” – 90 Points, Robert Parker, Jr.
Here are some examples of quotes that have made it in the past:
- “Wine makes daily living easier, less hurried, with fewer tensions, and more tolerance.” – Ben Franklin
- “In water, one sees one’s own face, but in wine, one beholds the heart of another.” – French Proverb
- *“Wine is like sunlight held together by water.” – Galileo Galilei *
- “There is nothing like good food, good wine, and a bad girl.” – Anonymous
