It is said in Chinese culture that the numbers SIX EIGHT & NINE are considered to be lucky or positive numbers. We’ve named our winery after these numbers in respect for and in tribute to the positive forces each represents.
The number “6” in Chinese culture represents happiness or fluidity. It allows us to flow through life with positive thoughts and energy and is also associated with luck and success in the business world. The number “8” in Chinese culture represents wealth or prosperity. The perfect symmetry of the number implies limitless possibilities and evokes balance and enlightenment. The number “9” in Chinese culture represents longevity or eternity. Traditionally associated with emperors, the largest single digit is believed to be the luckiest of numbers and inspires harmony and balance in life. During our travels through the Far East we experienced this to be true. We’ve named our winery after these numbers in respect for and in tribute to the positive forces each represents. Similar to the interwoven numbers in our logo, our wines reflect separate elements coming together into one balanced and harmonious whole. When you drink 689 Cellars wines, our hope is that you too will lead a happy, wealthy and long life.
