Just want to introduce all of you to one of my favorite new wine companies, JAQK Cellars. They are based in SF but make their wine in Napa. Besides producing some delicious wines, they also have incredibly beautiful branding and labeling which is all based on the theme of playing cards and casino games. Lots of fun and good conversation pieces as well!

So bnolan2, what's your relationship to the company?

I became a fan of their wine after first seeing their website on a design blog (I work in the Internet industry). I like wine, I like good design and I like playing cards (I do some sleight of hand magic), so it was appealing to me. Since then I have attended some of their events, so I suppose I could say that I am friends or acquaintances with some of the people there now. But I'm not financially tied to them at all. I just like spreading the word about great products when I see them.

I checked them out at a retail tasting in San Clemente a couple of years ago - even bought some High Rollers for some clients. Problem was, I knew next to nothing about wine at that point, and from what I can tell I wouldn't be recommending any buy calls any time soon, but would have to try the latest flight to be sure.
