Personalized Wine Cellar Plaques

Personalized Wine Cellar Sign

Personalized Wine Cellar Signs

Personalized wine cellar plaques are a perfect gift idea for wine lovers. We're wine lovers and we received a couple of personalized wine cellar signs as wedding gifts.

As a new bride, I was excited to receive a gift emblazoned with my new last name. We've since continued the tradition by choosing personalized wine cellar signs as wedding and anniversary gifts for our friends.

If you need a fun gift for someone who collects wine or enjoys entertaining at home, consider a wine cellar sign. Personalized signs are available in a number of styles and make a thoughtful one-of-a-kind gift idea.

Many of these personalized wine cellar plaque designs are based on vintage wine cellar signs, and have been carefully recreated with furniture grade woods or modern casting techniques that resemble real wood.

Customized gifts require a bit of pre-planning, since they must usually be ordered in advance, but the extra effort is worth it. Personalized gifts are always a hit with our friends and family. Enjoy the latest designs in wine cellar decor.

Personalized Wine Cellar Plaques
French Chateau Personalized Wall Plaque

An heirloom quality wine harvest plaque will add a touch of France to your home decor. It also makes a lovely gift idea for anyone who loves all things French. The design is based on an intricate, detailed carving from artist Al Pisano's Wine Art collection. The plaque portrays a colorful French chateau wine harvest scene, with a surrounding border of grapevines and purple grapes. At the top of the plaque is space for a name or other personalization. The Italian wine cellar plaque is approximately 24 inches high by 18 inches wide. Each plaque is hand painted and stained to capture the details of Al Pisano's original wood carving. A hanger is embedded on the back for easy display. Made in the USA.

Wine Barrel Personalized Wine Cellar Sign

Here's the wine barrel sign we have, also designed by Al Pisano. Your name is carved into the sign. Then each wine barrel sign is hand painted and stained to capture all the intricate detailing and dimension of Al Pisano's original wood carving. It measures approximately 13 inches in diameter. There's a recessed hanger on the back for easy hanging. Made in USA.

Wine Christmas Ornaments

Wine Christmas Ornaments
Kurt Adler Santa Ornament

Celebrate Christmas and Wine

Do you believe in wine? Santa Claus sure does! 'Tis the season for celebrating with friends and family. Here are some great stocking stuffer and gift suggestions for the oenophile on your holiday list.

Whimsical wine Christmas ornaments add a festive touch, especially when tied with a sparkling bow to any bottle of holiday spirits. They slip nicely over the necks of bottles too, and can be used over and over again. We use ours throughout the year.

How long have ornaments been part of the holiday tradition? Would you believe they've have been used to decorate trees since the 1800s. In the early days, holiday trees were decorated with edible items like fruits, nuts, candies, and cookies. By the end of the century, high quality glass ornaments were being produced. These were highly collectible and many have been passed down for generations (and are worth a small fortune today).

Many of those designs are still popular today, thanks to artists like Kurt Adler and Christopher Radko who keep the tradition alive. The festive "I Believe in Wine" Santa Claus on barrel shown here was designed by Kurt Adler, and more of his colorful resin designs are included below.

You'll also find grape, wine bottle, corkscrew, and cork designs that complement holiday wine decor. Add a little to your collection each year as we do. Our vineyard theme tree is so much fun that for many years we just kept it up year round. The adornments we've collected over the years look wonderful against a backdrop of sparkling green and purple lights. We love to collect printed corks and other small reminders of our visits to the many wonderful California wineries and vineyards. Who says a Christmas tree has to be green? This year we may spring for one of those sparkly purple trees!

Grape Christmas Ornaments
Celebrate with a Vineyard Theme Christmas Tree

Grapes are a popular home decor motif any time of year, and they’re especially critical to a vineyard theme holiday tree design. After all, without grapes there would be no wine! Grapes are available in a wide assortment of colors, sizes, and styles. These sparkling fruit clusters are especially elegant, whether hanging in a window, on the tree, or around the neck of a bottle of holiday spirits. The Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Zinfandel plaques are functional as well as beautiful. Drape them over bottles on the holiday buffet table so guests can help themselves to their favorite variety of wine.

Purple Christmas Trees
Purple Christmas Tree with Purple Lights (6" High)

Holiday decorating doesn't get much easier than a pre-lit Christmas tree with 350 lights. If one light burns out, the others will stay lit. This lush tree measures 44 inches at the widest point, and stands a full six feet high with 913 tips. It's made of PVC with added holographic sparkle in a combination of plastic and metal. Assembly is easy too, with three tree pieces and a stand. Your wine-themed holiday ornaments will look beautiful against this dramatic purple backdrop.
