Lastly for the red wine drinkers, we offer a custom label on our Cabernet Sauvignon. The pricing of each of these bottles and the selection of sparkling wine is available here!
How to create a custom label:
Once you’ve chosen the perfect wine, the next step is to create the personalized wine bottle label. Our custom label maker on our website allows you to choose from a variety of templates that have have already been created.
To begin, you select the wine you want to customize, then choose single bottle or a case. Next, you will be taken to a page with all our label templates.

Wine Gifts For Her
When Christmas shopping, you want to make sure you find something that the women in your life will love and use. Here are some ideas that she will fall in love with:
Idea 1: Wine Picnic Instead of gifting clothes or shoes, why don’t you gift her a date! Come to Wilson Creek, grab a charcuterie board or lunch from our Courtyard Bar and Grill, sit in our Lower Garden with a bottle of her favorite wine, and enjoy each other’s company!
Idea 2: Tastings While you’re on property, you can’t leave without tasting our handcrafted, award-winning wine. Along with the wine picnic, take her wine tasting so that she knows exactly what her favorite is for next time. (Tasting Options)
Idea 3: White Cabernet Pack Don’t live within driving distance to Wilson Creek? Well, then we know what you need. Purchase a White Cabernet 4 pack and take her to your nearest park for a wine picnic-DIY style! Your lady will fall in love with the effort and time you put into her Christmas gift this year. (White Cabernet 4 Pack)
The holidays are a perfect time to show your sister how much you care about her and how special she is to you! Gift your sister a Peach Bellini Sparkling Wine or a Rose Sparkling Wine!
Idea 1: Make it Personal When you order Peach Bellini or Rose Sparkling Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon or Chardonnay, we can include a picture of you and your sister complete with a special message that will mean the world to her. Not only will she get a delicious bottle of wine, but she will also get to keep it as a memory of the two of you. (Create Your Custom Label)
Idea 2: Wine Packages Check out our red or white wine packages that will leave her wanting more. To go along with that red or white package, add a gift card with a fun note saying she can cash in a tasting with you whenever she’s available! Not only are you giving her a delicious gift, but you are also planning some quality time with the two of you after the holiday craziness calms down. (Wine Packages)
Idea 3: Wine Club Membership Wine Club Membership would be a perfect gift for your sister or even your best friend! And to add to the fun, a wine club membership is the perfect excuse to plan the day and do a wine-pick up all in one! (Wine Club Membership)
Wine Gifts For Your Mom
Moms hold a special place in our hearts. If you are looking for gift ideas to spoil your mom and make her feel loved, we have some solid wine gift ideas.
Idea 1: Wine Pack One gift idea that we find to be a fan favorite is bringing a package of wine that mom can share at the holiday party. Having that on hand is so beneficial for her as she probably has a million-check list to do items in prep for the parties that are about to happen! (Wine Packages)
Idea 2: Wine Club Membership If your mom loves Wilson Creek Wine as much as we think she does, then one wine pack will not be enough! Gift her a Wine Club Membership so that she continues to receive her favorite wines over and over again. She will be reminded of you every time her package arrives. (Wine Club Membership)
Idea 3: Custom Label When looking for a sentimental gift, a custom label would be sure to put a smile on her face. Have her favorite sparkling flavor made with a picture of you and all your siblings or a special photo of you and her, so that she can keep it for years to come as a memory! (Create Your Custom Label)
Wine Gifts For Your Sister
The holidays are a perfect time to show your sister how much you care about her and how special she is.
Idea 1: Sparkling Wine for the “Sweet” Wine Drinker Our bubbly wines make a great gift especially for a sweet wine drinker. Gift your sister a Peach Bellini Sparkling Wine or a Rose Sparkling Wine. (Sparkling Wine)
Idea 2: Make it Personal When you order Peach Bellini, Rose, Brut or Almond Sparkling we can include a picture of you and your sister complete with a special message. (Create Your Custom Label)
Idea 3: Lunch Date How long has it been since you had lunch with your sister? Our Executive Chef at Creekside Grille rotates the restaurant menu every season with farm fresh, locally sourced menu items that she will love! Even more special, you have some time to catch up over a glass or two. (Make Reservations)
Wine Gifts For Him
Forget the shave kits and the golf clubs. This year is all about a robust wine sure to leave the palette happy!
Idea 1: The Best Gift for Wine Lovers Instead of holiday liquor, pick up a bottle or two of our ’19 Bourbon Barrel Zinfandel. Not only do they make perfect wine gifts, but they also have a great story! Aged in a Bourbon Whiskey barrel for 16 months, this wine gift idea has a smoky flavor-perfect for your manly man.
Idea 2: Another Red Favorite Another perfect gift for your man is a Terrior of Temecula Wine Country. This pack includes 3 Library wines, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel and Meritage. (Red Wine 3 Pack)
Idea 3: Something Unique for the Beer Drinker If your husband or boyfriend is more of a “beer” drinker, gift him a bottle of our Brut Sparkling Wine. This sparkling is one of the most popular amongst the beer drinking community and is a great gateway wine to introducing him to richer flavors. Ever wished he would sit down and enjoy a bottle of wine with you? Then, encourage him to try this sparkling! By gifting it to him, he can’t say no! (Brut Sparkling)
Idea 4: Reserve a sit-down wine tasting experience in the Reserve Room Get away from the hustle and bustle of the Tasting Room and take a trip upstairs to the Reserve Room. Take it up a notch and indulge in a sit-down guided tasting by one of our knowledgeable wine experts. Select from red, white, sparkling, library wines or even try a vertical flight. (Reservations)
Wine Gifts For Your Brother
If you’ve been wracking your brain for the perfect Christmas gift for your brother, then we can help win you some sibling points!
Idea 1: Developed Palette If your wine connoisseur brother has a more developed palette, we recommend getting him a bottle of our Plethora. This wine is delicious and has a very interesting story to go along with it. Most wines are made up of just a few grape varietals but this wine has about nine different varieties that make up the flavor. Complete with aromas of French Oak and blackberries, this will surprise him with your gift giving ability! (Plethora)
Idea 2: Lifestyle Accessories Check out our popular Wilson Creek Winery polos. Sleek style and design nails distinguished comfort on the golf course or casual Fridays in the office. Our collection of double-insulated, WCW logoed coffee and wine tumblers are ideal for camping or beach picnics as they keep the hot stuff hot and the chilled drinks, chilly!
Wine Gifts For Your Dad
Is your dad’s Christmas wish list sparse? Dads can be tough to shop for, but Wilson Creek Winery is here to make it a much easier experience this holiday season.
Idea 1: Custom Collection Instead of buying him a T-shirt, tie, or latest tech gimmick from Amazon, build a custom collection of wine favorites that he can enjoy with your mom, his buddies, or you! Add a mix of red, white, and sparkling wines that will give him a variety of flavors to try. Fan favorites include: our Family Reserve Syrah, our Family Reserve Double Dog, Roussanne, or our Brut Sparkling Wine!
Idea 2: Get Him Geared Up! To go along with him on his next fishing trip, purchase your dad a Wilson Creek Winery baseball hat. With this gift, he can sport his favorite winery and protect himself from the sun! Don’t forget to pair it with a Wilson Creek sweatshirt or t-shirt. (Accessories)
Idea 3: Wine Tour Is your dad a wine connoisseur? Or even just curious about the winemaking process? Well, we have the perfect gift for him. Give your dad a wine tour with the whole family! He will love taking a look behind the scenes of all things winemaking and seeing our vineyards, tanks, & barrels from a hands-on perspective. And, he might even get to try some of his favorites along the way!
Wine Gifts For Your Best Friend
Even though we get super busy all year long, the holidays are a great time to re-connect over a glass or two with friends.
Idea 1: Adventure Pack Time with the bestie is always valuable. Purchase a gift card and plan a wine tasting date with you two for some quality time! And don’t forget to add her favorite bottle of sparkling with it. There is nothing better than popping open a bottle of sparkling with your best friend to celebrate. (Gift Cards)
Idea 2: Custom Labeled Bottle Put a special photo of the two of you with a note that says “come taste with me”. Not only is the bottle a special gift but spending time at the winery catching up, even better! (Create Your Custom Label)
Idea 3: Wine Slushie Yes, it says “wine slushie”. Treat your side kick to a one-of-a-kind treat. Served on property at Courtyard Bar and Grill or Creekside Grille restaurant, the day is not complete without one.
