Just who on your list has been very naughty? This might just be the Holiday Gift for them!




Siegerrebe is a German white wine,with hues of honey blonde to light straw which appear golden-yellow in color. Siegerrebehas a layered aroma, a blend of rose petals, spices and grapefruit with hints of tangerine. This varietal tends to be low in acidic content. Its flavour is close to that of Gewürztraminer.

Food Pairing:

Siegerrebe pairs well with: Light Curry dishes, Chicken, Seafood, Cheese

Sex in a Bottle White


Sex in a Bottle White is our Siegerrebe that was left on the vines after the usual harvest date, processed in a cooler climate, and left on the skins. Bringing out sweeter and fruitier characteristics, along with a light blush. Flavors of citrus fruit, mango and berries.

Food Pairing:

Sex in a Bottle White pairs well with: Dessert, and great company

Sex in a Bottle Red


Sex in a Bottle Red is a mellow blend of red wines with a full, rich, ruby colored body. Notes of black cherries and blackberries, with lingering notes of caramel and chocolate. A nice wine to enjoy with some great company.
