Get to Crafting!


We are living in a world of recycling, upcycling and repurposing. In the last few years, reusing objects has become a popular trend. There was a time when old objects, thrift shopping and hand-me-downs used to be undesirable. But now, these things are seen as chic, vintage and trendy.

Just like the famous quote says, "One man's trash is another man's treasure." In our case, "One man's bottle is another man's craft."

The El Dorado Winery Association is known for its unique varietals, microclimates and atmospheres. As an association, we are interested in much more than the wine – we want to get to know you, as our customer, and where your interests lie. From what we have seen, generations alike are flocking towards DIY or "do-it-yourself" projects. If you look on any social media site you will find millions of posts with hashtags #DIY and #Crafts.

Why is this? Because crafting is fun, inexpensive, social and allows you to visually display memories in a creative way. Though it may seem like an empty bottle and a small cork have no value, we would like to show you just how much you can do with them. Inspiration lies everywhere – but just in case you can't seem to find it, follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for daily DIY projects!

Lacking the supplies to create these fun crafts? Come to one of our 40+ wineries, buy a bottle or two, and get to crafting!
