This wine is a loving ode to my grandparents and the years leading up to their wedding at St. Mary’s Church in Nicasio, California. Joseph Dennis McNeil courted Ellen Josephine Redding via the U.S. Postal Service from 1925 to 1928. The envelopes began as fully addressed-musings to Ellen Redding at 309 Fifth Avenue in San Rafael, California. The envelopes were so colorful and frequent that the addressee eventually read as simply “Ellen, San Rafael”. More than 50 different envelopes exist, although each of the letters contained inside remain strictly between Jospeh and Ellen. Each new vintage and colorful envelope tells their story.
