Wine-ing over Our First Gift

We received our very first wedding gift on Saturday!



What could it be??




It’s a gift from Jordan Winery! Mr. Plane made a visit to Jordan last fall on an all-expenses-paid trip where he was wined and dined and wined again. He had a great trip (even though he was without his Miss) and Jordan holds a special place in his heart—and our wine collection.

What did they send to us, you ask?


It’s a jeroboam (or three-liter bottle) of wine! We plan to use the bottle as a type of guestbook, and as you can see we already have a couple scribbles at the top. John Jordan and Rob Davis, the owner and head wine maker of Jordan Winery, were kind enough to kick off our guestbook with signatures of their own. Cool, right?

Possibly my favorite part of the bottle is its vintage:


Two thousand five, Mr. Plane astutely pointed out, is year we met! Strangely enough, the people at Jordan had no way of knowing this, so it is incredibly special that this bottle would be a 2005.

What was your first wedding gift? Are you as big of winos as we are?!

    Jordan Cab is our FAVORITE wine! We only buy it for birthdays and such, since it is quite pricey.

    That is seriously the coolest guestbook ever!

    What a cool gift. Our first gift was a gorgeous Wedgwood bowl from my Japanese tea ceremony teacher.

    Love this idea as a guestbook! How unique and fun, especially because the bottle can live on far after the wine is consumed. 😉

    NICE present !!

    And LOVE the idea of turning it into a Guest Book, very unique.

    Mr TTR and I both enjoy wine… it is a bit of a hobby for us.

    So naturally as we are “Encores” a great many of our Wedding Presents were tied to our interest “in the vine”. We have a seriously well-stocked wine cellar now thanks to our Friends / Guests.

    Lol… Wine Holidays make for great vacations… something to keep in mind for the future when you are looking for romantic getaways with your Hubby.

    Yum! Since our mini-moon, Mr. A and I have dubbed ourselves “wine people.” What a cool guestbook idea! You should uncork it on a special anniversary or something!
