Who knew the heartland of Missouri could produce wines that sing the quintessential carols of Christmas? Within this box, you'll get to experience our Norton, hailing from Augusta, Missouri, a region often unknown but holds the honor of being the first AVA in the US. And if a traditional prime rib takes center stage at your holiday table, our Cabernet Franc is the perfect match. With its robust structure and herbaceous notes, it will complement any roast to perfection, offering an exciting departure from your everyday Cabernet.
Whether you're treating yourself or gifting it to a loved one this holiday season, the Festive Flavors collection encapsulates the vibrant spirit and joy of the season.
The flagship white blend of the Eger region, this Egri Csillag offers charming and gentle floral aromas of acacia blossom and honeysuckle. The wine continues with ripe orchard fruit flavors—yellow apple skin, cantaloupe, ripe pear, and white peach. Concentrated and complex in its herbaceous thyme and tarragon notes, it shows its aging potential in a piercing acidity that elongates the finish.
The wine illicits all the classic earthy and floral Cabernet Franc notes—crushed violets, cracked pepper, tobacco leaf—punctuated by generous raspberry and black plum flavors. Framed by suave, velvety tannins and elongated with a bright, dark-fruited acidity, the wine demonstrates length and ageworthiness.
With laser-like precision and luminous, beaming acidity, this Riesling from Cave Spring is the quintessential expression of Canada’s Niagara Peninsula. Notes of citrus oil, frozen pear, and rounded river rocks encapsulate the wine’s crystalline purity. At once light and refreshing, while also concentrated and complex, the wine’s brightness and great length make this a Riesling for all seasons.
Richly succulent, this Norton exudes all the satisfying spice and fruit tones that make this grape such a beloved American standard. Black cherry compote, raspberry coulis, briar patch, and wilted herbs—the wine is both youthful and complexly layered. A joy to drink today, this Norton can also age several years.
A País of complexity and exuberant character, the wine demonstrates the unparalleled rewards yielded from old vines—with those contributing to this País often exceeding 100 years in age. Boisterous, crunchy flavors of cranberry, passionfruit, hibiscus, and black tea give way to a more savory, herbaceous finish. This light-bodied red carries the ability to refresh, the punchiness to excite, and the nuance to drive contemplation.
While fresh and laden with crunchy berry flavors, this Slovenian red blend is deceptively structured, ageworthy, and complex, revealing itself in time. You get all the classic earthiness that Blaufränkisch always delivers with notes of fallen leaves, fresh soil after the rain, paprika and soft spices. The splash of Cabernet adds some extra herbaceousness—tobacco, pencil shavings, graphite—as well as some tannic muscle.

When Tony Kooyumjian founded Augusta Winery in 1988, he had a vision to revitalize the region that gives name to the winery, and the broader Missouri wine industry, to the glories it once exhibited in the 19th century. Always remembering Missouri’s indelible mark on the wine history of the United States, Kooyumjian set out to demonstrate the power of Augusta’s terroir. Augusta continues to demonstrate the tremendous quality potential of hybrid grape varieties.
Among the most celebrated wineries in Eastern Slovenia, Marof is also perhaps the most ambitious in the Prekmurje region and its Goričko subzone. The winery is a collaboration between founder Stanko Polanič, who dreamed of demonstrating the tremendous potential of this long overlooked region, and Uroš Valcl, who grew up in his mother’s vineyard and joined Marof in 2009 for its third vintage. Valcl and Polanič steward their land with a gentle hand, seeking minimal intervention in the vineyard and cellar, where they focus on both native Slovenian and international grape varieties.
Celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2023, Tóth Ferenc Winery is a testament to the unwavering passion and dedication of its founders, Tóth Ferenc (affectionately known as Uncle Feri) and his wife. Their journey from ordinary jobs to esteemed winegrowers began in the early 80s, culminating in the establishment of the Áfrika Vineyard. Feri stood at the forefront in the 2000s, advocating for the cultivation of rare grape varieties like Kadarka and Leányka in the Eger region. The next generation, represented by Ferenc’s daughter Katalin and son-in-law Zoltán, joined hands in 2005, helping to extend the winery’s cave system, modernize the tasting room, and increase vineyard holdings in Eger’s prime sites.
