Top 5 Gifts for the Holidays 2020

The perfect gift is as elusive as it is impactful. It should be sentimental, but not sappy; classy, but not pretentious; personal, but not awkward. It’s a lot to think about! Fortunately, V. Sattui Winery has been specializing in gifting for longer than most Napa wineries have been in existence, and we are here to help! From your Aunt Pam in Miami to your most important client in Chicago, to your best friend from college living in Denver, here are the Top 5 ways to give the gift of V. Sattui this holiday season.

1) Wine & Gift Packs

 

Hand-packed with LOVE, V. Sattui gift sets include artisan foods and logo merchandise paired with hand-selected wines for a perfectly personalized present. Choose from fun and friendly packs like Pass the Mustard and Yay for Gamay!, or focus on pure indulgence with our Pamper-In-Place and Wine Not? boxes. Shop online and select the wine(s) you prefer in each box. With ten themed gift packs to choose from, there is something for everyone! Prefer a different collection of goodies? No problem! Contact kellie@vsattui.com for a truly custom gift to match your budget.

2) Wine Packs

Take the guesswork out of your gifting! Ensure everyone has their favorite dinner wine on-hand with our food-friendly For the Bird and For the Roast 6-packs, or encourage la dolce vita with our After Dinner Holiday Dessert 3-Pack.

We even have the perfect gift for the wine collector in your life – the Cabernet Horizontal 6-pack, featuring all our single-vineyard designate Cabernets from the 2016 vintage, plus our signature Bordeaux blend, the 2016 Paradiso.

3) Personalize it!

 

Add some “WOW” to your wines this year with personalized decals and hangtags that are guaranteed to make an impact. Include your company logo to impress your clients and employees, or add some flair to your gift with fun clipart or a heartfelt message to really bring that holiday cheer into their homes.

4) Virtual V. Sattui Experiences

Even sheltering-in-place, the V. Sattui Experience is never out of reach! Let one of our expert wine educators “edu-tain” you over Zoom and guide you through a palate-pleasing selection of genuine V. Sattui wines, with five different “vino packs” to choose from. Sip and savor with friends and family online, or substitute your company’s holiday party this year with a stay-at-home cooking demonstration or cheese board assembly contest that’s sure to inspire laughter, fun, and plenty of joyful holiday memories.

5) Wine of the Month Club Membership

For the wine lover who has everything… give them something more! The V. Sattui Wine of the Month Club is a wine subscription service unlike any other in the Napa Valley. Choose from six different club levels sure to satisfy even the most discerning palate, with monthly or bi-monthly shipments.

Other benefits include complimentary tastings at the winery (including barrel tastings!), discounts on wine purchases, invitations to member-exclusive events, and more! And just think – each time your giftee opens a new shipment, they’ll be reminded of you.

V. Sattui Staff Spotlight: Q&A with Angie McGoogan

Angie McGoogan – An Artist Discovered

V. Sattui Winery recently discovered the hidden artistic talents of young Angie McGoogan, who wears the title of Administrative Assistant at V. Sattui Winery. Not only is her work thoughtful in concept, but her designs are also brilliant and precise. We are thrilled to have her talents supporting our marketing efforts here at the Winery and look forward to witnessing her flourish on her artistic path.

How did you first start getting into art?

As a kid, I did a lot of drawing. I was featured on ABC7 when I was seven years old when I sent in a picture of the rain. It was a lot of fun. My parents got a VHS tape sent to them, which I think they still have, of that small segment on the news of my drawing. And then in high school, I started doing a lot more drawing, and that’s when I decided I wanted to pursue it a bit more and possibly make a career out of it.

What other art pieces have you done that you’re particularly proud of?

My dad’s published book cover – I painted a picture of him when he was younger for his autobiography, Tales of a Well-Spent Youth. Now, he has a second book about to be released, and I also painted the cover for that one. I’m particularly proud of both cover creations.  Most of my favorite art pieces, though, my parents have adopted. They are hanging around their house so I can see them whenever I want.

I recently illustrated a custom “ThankXmas” card for [V. Sattui’s Outbound Hospitality Manager] Megan, which was a lot of fun. She wanted to combine Thanksgiving and Christmas with a little humor. I was inspired to include a turkey, Santa, and Jesus giving a thumbs up. Yea, it was a lot of fun to do for her.

How would you describe your own art?

I do a lot of cartooning and I’ve always created many abstract designs. I also really enjoy lettering and always have since high school. While not exactly a “graffiti artist,” since I didn’t apply my art to walls, you could describe my lettering as graffiti in style – especially when I was younger.  I have found my designs apply well to cards, invitations, and posters.

How did you come up with the design for the V. Sattui Holiday Barrel?

We received an invitation from the St. Helena Chamber of Commerce to participate in their Holiday Wine Barrel campaign. [Vice President of Marketing] Ali and I threw around some ideas while sourcing one of our own used barrels.

Originally, the barrel design was going to be a plump Santa, but then I was looking through my artbook and I saw an illustration I had done in the past of a snow globe. I thought it would be cool to paint the iconic V. Sattui Winery building inside a snow globe, plus I thought the round shape of the design would work well on a barrel. It took me three working days to paint the barrel – 8 hours every day!

What are your favorite mediums to use?

I love color in general, so I prefer painting and I use a lot of art markers. Regardless of the medium, it’s important to keep my art “me,” in a way. I don’t want to steer away from that too much when it comes to custom designs I do for others, and I think so far I’ve done a pretty good job staying in the style of “me.”

Resiliency – at the Heart of V. Sattui Winery

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

So much has been taken from us this year and at times it has been outright unbearable. Nevertheless, for all that we have endured, and the list is long, we have survived because that is what we do. Resilience is part of the fabric of our great humanity. Resilience has given us the strength to fight one crisis after another. Resilience has also allowed us to see the greatness in humankind through heroic acts of kindness, compassion, and bravery. Resilience has been our guiding light; our compass as we navigate a world of uncharted waters towards hopefully a new world full of respect and kindness.

We hope you’ll take a moment to watch this heartfelt video capturing the resiliency of our V. Sattui team. From the earth to your glass, we’re in this together – for the long haul.

As the holidays near, now is the time that we take back our lives and begin focusing on restoring our sense of normalcy, reclaiming our traditions, and renewing our spirits. Disruption has been with us for too long; let us look forward and celebrate this joyous season.

RECLAIM, RESTORE, RENEW WITH V. SATTUI THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

The spirit of our Holiday Catalog is to restore and reclaim our traditions. We looked to our historic Hibbard Ranch for inspiration to reclaim our traditions. Through century-old artifacts and reclaimed wood found on our ranch, we showcase our wines through a lens that captures the spirit of a bygone era and brings it forth in a renewed way.

We may not be able to experience the holiday traditions in an exact way of years past, but we build on the past and create new traditions that can be passed on to future generations.

All of us at V. Sattui Winery are thankful that you have chosen our wines to be a part of your family traditions, old and new. We hope our wines will also help renew your spirits and bring happiness to your holiday season.

With warm regards,

 

 

Tom C. Davies,
President

Give the Gift of V. Sattui to your Corporate Partners

Sharing wine with friends and family is at the heart of everything we do. The holiday season is no exception. It’s easy to get caught up in the “hustle and bustle” of this time of year, but we here at V. Sattui specialize in corporate holiday gift-giving that makes a lasting impression with timely delivery, easy customization options, and plenty of high-quality, hard-to-find, ready-to-drink wines that are within your budget. Let us make your company’s gifting this year effortless, expressive, and extraordinary! 

Wine as a Corporate Gift

Thank your colleagues, employees, and clients for everything they’ve done for your business throughout the year with a luxurious and heartfelt gift with sentimental roots, deep family ties, and a limited production that can’t be found in stores. What might that be?  V. Sattui wine, of course! With over 60 wines in our portfolio, our selection is sure to satisfy any palate, from a dessert wine lover to a bold Cabernet drinker. Moreover, our gorgeous bottles can be gifted without the need for wrapping. This saves you time and money during a season when both can be in short supply. 

Personalize it

Make your gift stand out from the rest!  Adorn your gift with V. Sattui’s wide variety of customizable products so your gift expresses your sentiments and gratitude.  Gold-bordered stickers beautifully enhance any of our wine bottles with your company logo and will stay on permanently, whether the wine is kept in the cellar, on the table, or in their stocking.

Elegant gift tags allow for longer, personalized notes to impress your most discerning recipients. You can also upgrade your packaging with bottle bags or logo boxes. On top of all these personalization options, we also offer two- and three-bottle gift boxes that are a perfect time-saving solution for an eye-catching and memorable present bedecked with our winery’s unique holiday design and containing a warm letter from our award-winning winemaker, Brooks Painter.  Should you simply wish to include a gift note card with your personal message, we have that too – complimentary with every purchase. 

If shipping wine bottles is an obstacle, we offer gift cards that never expire and can be used on our website, over the phone, or in-person at our winery; we don’t distribute our wines in restaurants or stores, so this is the only way to acquire these beautiful bottles. Your recipients can select the exact wines they want, and can take advantage of our holiday wine specials as well! 

It’s Time to Think Wine

We are dedicated to helping you stay ahead of your corporate holiday gifting this year, ensuring everyone on your “nice” list knows you’re thinking of them! We recommend sending your gifts early (before Thanksgiving) to prevent them from getting lost in the whirlwind of packages that arrive closer to Christmas and New Year. Our expert staff of wine consultants is ready to take your calls and answer your emails. We would love to tell you about our special pricing for corporate orders. You can reach us at (707) 963-7774 or info@vsattui.com. 

All of us here at V. Sattui wish you and yours the happiest of holiday seasons. Cheers!
