          Description

          A classic gift of sweet and savory edibles with an attractive cutting board and cheese knife. Creamy cheese, crackers, mustard, sausage, and more are paired with the Rainier Ridge Red Blend.

          Wine Gift Includes:

          • Rainier Ridge Red Blend:
            Washington's dramatic landscape contributes greatly to this smooth and intriguing Red Wine Blend. Deep ruby red color leads to soft tannins with jammy fruit flavors that give way to smooth plum and currant finish.

          • Beef Summer Sausage 5 oz
          • Sonoma Jacks Pepper Jack Cheese 4 oz
          • Olive Oil and Sea Salt Crackers 2 oz
          • Napa Mustard 1.75 oz
          • California Crunchy Herb Almonds 1.5 oz
          • Cookie Brittle 1oz
          • Cheese Spreader
          • Wood Cheese Board
          • Festive Greet Sheet

          Due to the popularity of this gift, wines or vintages sometimes sell out. Should this happen, we will always substitute with the current vintage and wines with equal or greater value.

          Champagne

          View all wine

          Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, Champagne is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to be labeled ‘Champagne’ within the EU and many New World countries, a wine must originate in this northeastern region of France and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide. Well-drained limestone chalk soil defines much of the region, lending a mineral component to the wines. The climate here is marginal—ample acidity is a requirement for sparkling wine, so overripe grapes are to be avoided. Weather differences from year to year create significant variation between vintages, and in order to maintain a consistent house style, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years.

          With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled varietally, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, delicacy, and elegance, as well as bright and lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit, and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body, and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while one comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’
