A Rare Cabernet Sauvignon for a Private Cellar

Mount Veeder grapes are rare and highly sought after in the wine industry. As a matter of fact, of all the wines produced in the Napa Valley, only about one percent come from the Mount Veeder region. A boutique Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon with a personal brand and story is most rare, and a unique and exclusive offering Mount Veeder Magic Vineyards  extends to its members.

The experience begins with grapes that are nearly impossible to get as a consumer. The fruit comes from 30-year-old vines on Karen’s hillside vineyard in one of the leading appellations in existence. After hand-picking, aging, and refining in French oak, the ultra- premium, estate-sourced wine is masterfully handcrafted by Jeff Fontanella,  an award- winning winemaker who does a phenomenal job expressing the Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon wine profile.

There are two levels of membership available to wine aficionados, and both options allow the opportunity to acquire this premium Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon. Membership is limited and designed for avid collectors and red wine lovers seeking to add a single vineyard Mount Veeder Cab to their cellar.

The Winemaker Membership is exclusive, offering only 25 memberships each vintage. Members may acquire 288, 144, or 72 bottles per year with their unique story presented on custom-designed front and back labels.

The Collector Membership (60 cases offered annually) provides Mount Veeder Magic Vineyards Cab offered through a limited biannual allocation in fall and spring presented in three-,  six- and twelve-bottle vertical allotments.

But Mount Veeder Magic Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon  is more than a nearly unattainable luxury. “This is one of the most personal wine experiences you will ever have,” owner Karen Crouse describes,  explaining how she assures that every detail from the vineyard to glass is to the gold standard. The first-class Cabernet Sauvignon is bottled and presented with bespoke  labels  that Karen designs to her client’s specifications. She does it after getting to know them, figuratively reading their diaries so she can reflect what’s meaningful to them and why  it’s  important to them to share it. She’s honored they place such trust in her and believes it’s why they continue to come back year after year.

Karen’s clients  have chosen her Mount Veeder Magic Vineyards Cab to commemorate a major life milestone such as a birth, anniversary or marriage, a gift, or thank you for friends or clients, and to honor a special person or to recognize a business success.

“My clients are well established in business with a strong entrepreneurial spirit. Several are Forbes Gentlemen. They enjoy the finer things in life like excellent  food and rare wines. They are from around the globe and from varying industries ~ banking, energy, entertainment, finance, insurance,  medicine, and real estate. They all wish to have a rare wine with their bespoke label.

I truly enjoy working with each of my clients to create a Mount Veeder Cab that is worthy of their private cellar, a wine that they are proud to share selectively with clients, family, and friends.” – Karen Crouse
