GSM. Those three letters, short form for Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre, have developed a loyal following of wine drinkers globally for the rich, robust, and distinctive wines they produce. Like many varietals and blends, New World producers look to classic examples in the Old World to model after. In the case of GSM, it’s France’s Rhone Valley. We looked closer to home to source our GSM- here in Sonoma County, which, as we prefer to do, we labeled simply Red Wine. Made You Look has that difficult to achieve balance of richness, juiciness, and complexity. It’s one of those wines that you can serve at just above cellar temperature and as it warms up in the glass will show you many, many facets. Classic leather, spice, and meaty notes are paired up against ample blackberry fruit and creamy integrated tannins. Total lipsmacker!

about our drops
Each quarterly drop is purpose-made for our members around the theme of the release, and will differ every quarter. With each shipment, you will receive the equivalent of 6 bottles, which may be 6 bottles of the same wine, or a combination of different wines. The theme and wines will change from quarter to quarter, but will always be thoughtfully made and produced exclusively for our members. The wine may be white, red, rosé, sparkling, or a combination of those, but will always be delicious. If you particularly love a wine in the release, as a member you may purchase additional bottles through the GESTALT website. Over time, we will introduce additional wines available to everyone, with members enjoying a significant pricing discount.
We view life in three dimensions, but we live it more than that if one takes into account the aromas we experience and the textures we touch and the emotions that we feel. Those sensations go to the essence of wine, loved ones, and the experiences we endeavor to enrich for our Members. Dave has been searching for years for the right way to release a wine with a 3D label, Made You Look was that opportunity.
the drop zine
Each drop includes a custom tabloid style newspaper magazine exploring the theme to accompany our wine. For ‘Made You Look” we explore the world of 3D, and think about what really - makes you look.
the art object
All of our drops contain 6 bottles of wine, a tabloid magazine and a custom art object. This drop, we broke out some old school red and cyan 3D glasses - and played with a technology known as Anaglyphic 3D. This stereoscopic 3D effect is achieved by filtering one eye in red and the other in cyan.
this drop’s theme
For each drop, we discuss our theme through our tabloid magazine. This quarter, we talk about all thing things that "make you look". From Dark UX doom scrolling to the charming faces we see in everyday life, thanks to a phenomenon known as pariedolia.
