. . . a very special occasion needs a very special bottle . . .

Impressive and memorable when used to celebrate a significant event, large bottles provide slower aging of the wine, often developing more complexity. Wonderful when finally enjoyed by friends and family gathered for that special occasion when everyone can enjoy the same wine from a single, older vintage.

Large Bottle Questions

Historically wine bottle sizes, referred to as "formats", have been named after biblical kings, perhaps to ensure they were always surrounded by a happy, well lubricated crowd.

  • Jeroboam jeh-ruh-bow-uhm “First King of The Kingdom”
  • Methuselah muh-thoo-suh-luh “Oldest Man”
  • Salmanazar sal-man-azar “Assyrian King”
  • Balthazar bal-thuh(2)-zaar “One of The Wise Men”
  • Nebuchadnezzar neh-buh-kuhd-neh-zr “King of Babylon”

Each glass bottle is etched with the Williamson Wines name in actual gold, the wine's name in brilliant red, the wine variety in arctic white and the black W-logo etched deeply into the black glass bottle.

Private Custom Etching Questions

    Private Custom Etching can be done for a single bottle or multiples so there is no minimum quantity requirement.

    You can order one bottle; one each for special family member or multiple cases for your clients or club members.

Let us know you are interested via email and we will contact you so you can select any one of our wines that you like.

You provide us your ideas or a sample of your color art work, logo, etc., and the wording for your label and choose the wax color, either black or red.

Once we understand your label requirements we confirm your wine order and our graphic artist creates a proof of the finished label for your approval.

A one-time setup fee of $1,500 covers our required label art work development and submission to the U.S. Dept. of Treasury (TTB) label registration approval process, all of which we manage for you and you approve prior to production.

Our pricing assumes you will order one size bottle and your artwork content will be suitable for one-time TTB approval. It must not contain any uncivil, disrespectful or vulgar messaging. Any logos, company names or product names must be accompanied by written approval permitting its use.

An additional setup fee will apply if the TTB rejects your artwork as it will need to be modified and resubmitted; or if you choose an additional, different size bottle.
