We’re in Love With This Ring and You Will be Too

We are constantly amazed by the Bottle Stories we hear from our fans. One of our favorites? Sara and her husband Eric, from Seattle, Washington, have such a strong connection to Silver Oak that Eric surprised Sara by incorporating it into one of her most cherished possessions – her engagement ring.

What we want to know is...can we get one too? Thank you Sara for sharing your story!

Silver Oak is a very special wine for us. On our first date we toasted with Silver Oak Cabernet, and ever since it’s been the wine we enjoy on special occasions. We even celebrated our first anniversary with a surprise visit to the winery.

When it came time to propose, my now-husband Eric reached out to my family’s dear friend, Milton Krasner of Krasner Jewelers in La Jolla, CA. Milton's specialty is custom design, so he and Eric immediately began talking about things that were unique to us as a couple. The first thing Eric thought of was, of course, Silver Oak!

Next came determining how to incorporate Silver Oak into the ring. What better symbol than the water tower? Milton created renderings of the ring that he shared with Eric, and over the next few weeks those renderings transformed into my ring.

Eric proposed two days before Christmas at Beacon's Beach in my home town of Encinitas, CA. We celebrated with – of course – a bottle of Silver Oak!
