Wine Country Hostess Gift Set
We never show up empty handed to a party in wine country. Sometimes it's as simple as a bottle of rosé, but often the occasion calls for something more special. We worked with local Napa artisans to create the perfect host or hostess gift: something elegant, tasty and memorable!
Each gift set includes:
- An Olive and Poppy Wine Lovers Tea Towel in your choice of Cabernet, Rosé, Chardonnay or Bubbles.
- A limited-edition dish from famed Napa ceramicist Lynn Mahon. This oval, 3x4" stoneware bowl uses ash from grapevine burn piles in the glaze for texture. A stunning natural cream/taupe color, each dish is slightly different and unique.
- Your choice of Clif Family Rosemary Roasted Almonds and Pistachios OR Dark Chocolate Toffee Pistachios.
- Each gift set comes wrapped in a kraft box with an orange ribbon and a personalized card.
About our local partner: Lynn Mahon
Lynn Mahon was born and raised in Sonoma County, and now maintains an active studio on the ridge of the Mayacamas Mountains, near the border between Napa and Sonoma counties. His tableware can be found in Michelin starred restaurants such as Meadowood in Napa, and Saison in San Francisco. Mahon’s philosophy is a mixture of California craft and Japanese Zen. His work is informed by a lightness of touch, simplicity, and an adherence to natural materials and form. His glazes are earthy and natural, never artificial, and are inspired by his surroundings: soil, rock sediment, the bark of trees, and the surrounding vineyards. Perfect forms thrown on the wheel are often altered by hand: a cup is squeezed to fit better in the palm, or marks are incised across a smooth surface.
