A Fresh New Look for St. Kathryn Cellars Wines!
Lavender, Apple Blossom, Peach available in stores now

It's a refreshing new day for wine drinkers as St. Kathryn Cellars debuts new original art labels illustrating the fresh ingredients in our 100% fruit and botanical wines. The mouth-watering illustrations on our new labels were created by artist Suren Nersisyan and reinforce the authenticity of our wines. St. Kathryn Cellars wines are made with real fruit and botanicals and are not grape-based wines with flavors added. The result is a more natural, farm-fresh flavor and more enjoyable taste experience.


The new bottling responds to changing wine drinkers’ preferences for refreshing, fruitier wines with a hint of sweetness, away from dry, heavy, overpowering tastes. The latest research from the Wine Business Institute at California State University, Sonoma shows that the majority of U.S. wine drinkers prefer fruitier rather than dry wines.

We haven't lost the drawing of the tasting room that was featured on our old label. It's pictured in a gold oval above our name. We've gained lovely watercolor art of the fruit of Palisade orchards, fields and berry patches! This means you can experience more of the joy of a trip to Palisade just by opening up a bottle!

St. Kathryn Cellars wines are also a social experience: they mix well with many other beverages and pair with today's most popular dishes. To learn more about pairing our wines, go to the most recent blog post on our web site. Enjoy!
