The stories a bottle of wine can carry across generations makes it one of the most interesting collectible items. The life of the land, the histories of the grapes: they all intertwine in a well stocked cellar that weaves a story of an individual collector’s life and travels.
This Father’s Day, we are thinking about our favorite moments with our fathers, and the memories we collect as people. Currently, in Italy and France, we are thinking about saving some bottles to open up years down the line and remind us of this beautiful summer trip.
And just like a good wine collection, these memories with our fathers become more special with time when they are cherished in the right way. Creating a wine cellar is a very personal undertaking, and here at ARGAUX we organize cellars upon request to help fill the holes and build the foundation of a solid collection.
Clients frequently come to us with questions about building a collection, and we are happy to help. Curating wine on an emotional level takes time and consideration, and a deep understanding of how a bottle will change over time. This is one of the reasons a bottle of wine, to be saved, can be such a charged gift: there is so much effort and thought that goes into creating, finding, and valuing a special bottle.
This Father’s Day we are grateful to our fabulous Dads and are looking back fondly at the memories we have collected with them over bottles these past few years.
So raise a glass to those to raised us! Happy Father’s Day!
Cheers From Your Pocket Somms! – ARGAUX
