Wine Christmas Ornaments

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!

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.
