It’s almost the fourth of July, and if you’re like everyone else in the U.S., you’re probably wondering how to celebrate it. COVID-19 has made gathering in large groups to watch fireworks fairly unappealing, and after several weeks of lockdown, you’re probably itching to get out and do something different.

Sherwin Family Vineyards located in the stunning district of spring mountain wineries offers you a way to relax in peace and solitude while still observing summer’s most patriotic holiday.

Rather than sweating in the heat and waiting in line for Napa Valley’s tourist-heavy attractions, head to St. Helena and join the Sherwin family for their moving display of love for their country.

What is the Patriotic Pour?

The Sherwins originally created this bottle as a lasting tribute to the Americans who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. They were honored to feature this bottle in a wine auction to benefit the families of victims lost in the attacks. To their delight, it was received with great success. 

Beautifully etched, hand-painted, and filled with Sherwin Family Vineyards’ best Estate Cabernet, the bottle also proudly features “In God We Trust” and “United We Stand” as part of the design.

    What makes this tribute one-of-a-kind?

    The Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms has a long history of prohibiting alcohol manufacturers from using the American flag’s image on their labels. 

     Sherwin Family Vineyards is different. They are the only company that has ever obtained approval for putting the flag’s image on their Patriotic Pour label.

    Are the bottles available for purchase?

    Yes. A limited amount are produced every year and either donated to charity causes or sold to customers. Pick one up by stopping by the winery, or browse the vineyard’s full selection of wines online.

    While the striking American flag bottle is available for purchase online, the beauty of this tribute is best enjoyed in person. 

    Take a moment of remembrance this fourth of July to honor those who are no longer with us and be a part of the ongoing tradition of the Patriotic Pour.
