This holiday season, Gervasi Vineyard is adding excitement and joy to celebrations with family, friends, and co-workers. Each week leading up to Christmas, we’ll share a new idea for experiencing Gervasi with your loved ones.
Celebrate the Magic of the Season at Marketplace Holiday Gala
The first step of the holiday season is to decorate your home and Christmas tree in the colors of the season. The Marketplace is a quaint Tuscan-inspired boutique and the perfect place to find unique holiday décor and special gifts for you loved ones. This year’s annual Marketplace Holiday Gala has been extended for four days: November 5 through November 8.
“The Holiday Gala event is our official the kickoff to the holidays at Gervasi Vineyard,” said Traci Love, Operations Manager for The Marketplace. “Our boutique gift shop is transformed into a magical holiday wonderland. Throughout the shop we feature gorgeous holiday decorations and unique gifts, in addition to the special jewelry lines and home decor featured year-round.”
Shoppers and decorators will fall in love with the finest ornaments, garlands and other trimmings in crème and gold colors or the traditional red and green colors. You’ll also find all of those distinctive decorations to make your home warm and inviting with festive holiday décor.
Thinking about gifts to go under that gorgeous tree? It’s the spirit of giving that makes the season so special. The Marketplace has introduced some very high-end lines and unique brands within the past year including: Nordic Beach Wraps, UnoDe50 handmade jewelry from Madrid, Salute eco-friendly candles inspired by Italian aperitivi, and Rebel Designs handmade jewelry from NYC.
“We wanted to elevate our product line to become more of a high-end boutique, better aligning with the Gervasi brand standard,” said Love. “We also continue to carry our ever-popular decorative art, like the Sid Dickens and Houston Lou tiles. These one-of-a-kind collectibles are timeless.”
The Marketplace is also a one-stop shop to for wine or spirits when hosting holiday parties, or gifting the party host. For those who have exquisite taste in Italian wines or spirits, pick up a few bottles of Gervasi’s award-winning wines or Gervasi Spirits’ bourbon, vodka and gin. Pair your favorite Gervasi spirit with Gervasi’s pre-mixed, all-natural cocktail mixers.
If you are seeking fun gifts for foodies, try Gervasi’s signature branded products, to create the Gervasi experience at home. For dinner try Mama Gervasi’s housemade marinara pasta sauce, hot pickled peppers, Tuscan herb olive oil bread mix and bread dipping spices. Italian imported olive oil is available and perfect for dipping! For coffee lovers, try Gervasi Caffé organic roasted coffee, offered in fresh whole bean and K-cup style. Chocoholics will enjoy the three varieties of GV chocolate bars or one of four wine brownie mixes to create the perfect dessert! If you can’t decide, a GV gift basket is a perfect combination of wine and food pairings included.
Unsure what to get for your co-worker, or a loved one who seems to have everything? A Gervasi gift card is the perfect gift. You can pick yours up while at the Holiday Gala or any time before Christmas at The Marketplace. It is a terrific way to make this holiday season even brighter.
“We want you to feel right at home,” said Love. “Everyone entering the boutique receives a warm welcome. The fireplace will be burning to make it warm and cozy all while the sales associates give each customer individual attention if they need help selecting their décor or unique gifts.”
The Marketplace Holiday Gala hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday (Nov. 5), 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday (Nov. 6 & 7) and noon to 7 p.m. on Sunday (Nov. 8). Please note, the boutique shop closes for three days to prepare for the Holiday Gala (Nov. 2 thru 4).
All shoppers making a purchase during the Holiday Gala open house will receive a voucher to enjoy a cup of Gervasi Caffé at The Still House coffeehouse and cocktail lounge after their shopping adventure.
“It is such a magical time on the Gervasi Vineyard estate over the holidays. From the time our guests pull in through the iconic Gervasi arch, they are captivated by the grand holiday décor on the estate,” said Love. “Coming to Holiday Gala is a perfect way to kick off the holiday season. You’ll enjoy a personal shopping experience, get a jump on your holiday shopping, and you’ll be supporting a local business.”
