Shortly after getting engaged, I enlisted my dad's help for our favors. His retirement project is wine and beer making...which I knew, right away, would be our wedding favors. He happily agreed and sent me pics for blogging about the process, etc. And here you have it! The finished product....
MESSAGE ON THE BOTTLE:
Thank you so much for being here
We hope you enjoy this bottle of cheer
It’s been aged and refined
So do us a favor and savor the flavor
But keep the bottle to remind
Of a love that is truly divine
Unlike our marriage, this wine has a short shelf-life.
QUOTE THAT IS ON THE TOP:
Let us celebrate the occasion with wine and sweet words – Platus
TWO LABELS- ONE FOR EACH FLAVOR OF WINE.
Gewurztraminer - a white wine, medium body, aromas of honey, citrus and flowers, this wine is near the dry side of the sweetness scale, soft on the palate with a clean aftertaste, the perfect wine for socializing.
Black Raspberry Merlot - a sweet wine with aromas of blackberry, cherries and candy store, the black raspberry thins out some of the heavy tannins from the merlot giving this wine a fruity flavor.
A LITTLE DITTY ON MY DAD AND HIS WINES
Steve, , started making wine around 1960 after listening to stories of grandmother, who bought her home in the early 20th century from the proceeds of making "illegal moonshine" made from apples. Thanks to prohibition, today he makes wine in the basement of his home in Pennsylvania, calling it The Oxbow Winery. This wine was created especially for the wedding of Jennifer and Tedd. Like their marriage, which is created out of love, this wine is created with love for you to enjoy and the bottle was designed to you to keep as a reminder of this celebration.
