NO COINCIDENCE

Drop 001

This drop includes two wines. The first is perfectly balanced, high toned, pure, with classic bing cherry flavors - it’s a 2021 Pinot Noir from the Santa Cruz Mountains appellation. The second is a crisp, refreshing yet flavorful 2021 Chardonnay from the Edna Valley in San Luis Obispo County Coast. Created in partnership with winemaker Tony Leonardini.

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.


creating no
coincidence

Wanting to launch GESTALT in a bold way, we literally combined wine with art and blew it up. We filled empty wine bottles with acrylic paint, attached them to a canvas and shot the bottles with a vintage Belgian Browning double barreled shotgun. The resulting mix of paint, glass, and peppered canvas became the pink and yellow labels that grace the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay of our inaugural member release.


the drop zine

Each drop includes a custom tabloid style newspaper
magazine exploring the theme to accompany our
wine. For ‘No Coincidence” we explored the concepts
of serendipity, the gamblers fallacy and take a deeper
look into the wines.

the art object

Most drops will contain the 6 bottles of wine, a tabloid newspaper, and an art object. The art object will relate back to the concept of the release. In the case of No Coincidence, we have included a hand stamped “GESTALT” coin. We ordered thousands of international coins, selected the most interesting ones, stamped them with a die and sledge hammer with the GESTALT logo, then hand rubbed them with pink oil paint matching the wax tops on our bottles.

this drop’s expert

Every drop in our tabloid newspaper magazine we interview an expert on our theme. For No Coincidence, we sat down with Christian Busch, a Phd from the London School of Economics and expert in the science and art of serendipity. He is the author of “The Serendipity Mindset” and has shared some interesting insights into how we can cultivate our own luck.
