The House of Wine Holiday Set Season is officially here!! This year we are excited to bring a TWIST to our Holiday Wine Sets!

We've broken the wines into sets (White/Sparkling, Red/Fortified, and Northwest) for those that want to focus on a particular genre. But, that's not all. We've classed things up a bit with beautiful white wine totes, a hint of decoration and the best thing yet, individual wine bottle notes and a surprise gift! These notes are way fancier than our typical sheets and perfect for slipping into a bottle bag when gifting one of your treasures. So, you'll look like you went the extra mile making each bottle a special experience for you to enjoy or share with others.

We have 3 exciting sets to offer this season:

1. "The Set for the Northwest"- Stellar wines from Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. $149/set ($134 for members!)

2. "White and Sparkling Wines of the World"- Well-crafted white and sparkling wines from across the world that are great values. $110/set ($99 for members!)
