Distiller HiteJinro has released a wide range of wine gift sets ahead of the Lunar New Year holiday season.

The new range includes bottles from internationally renowned wineries such as Cambria, Sterling and Tarapaca as well as Marques de Riscal and Taittinger.

From best-value bottles to limited editions, the gift sets range in price from 50,000 won ($42.25) to 1 million won. Hailing from multiple countries with different tastes, they make for great gifts to loved ones during Seollal, the company said.

Produced from one of the world’s most respected wineries, the Marques de Riscal Frank Gehry Selection is inspired by renowned architect Frank Gehry who was behind the design for Hotel Marques de Riscal. Only a dozen bottles are available.

As the name suggests, Taittinger Artist Collection Vintage Brut comes in a bottle decorated with some of the most famous artworks of the 21st century. The 14th edition will feature the work of Brazilian photographer Sebastiao Salgado.

The award-winning Essence de Dourthe from Bordeaux will also go on sale, while the Cambria wine set consists of Julia’s Vineyard Pinot Noir and Katherine’s Vineyard Chardonnay.

Vintner’s Collection, which comes with a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, is made by Sterling Vineyards in Napa, California. The winery is known to have served A-listers at the Oscars for several years.

Hailing from Chile, the Tarapaca Reserva set is from a brand that has won over 400 awards.

The wines are currently on sale at the main branch of Shinsegae Department Store as well as a few select branches of the Hyundai Department Store.
