Description

‘The Chalice’ is a limited release, reserve wine range produced by Chalice Bridge Estate winery in Margaret River, Western Australia. The name evokes the legends of the Quest for the Holy Grail, and this medieval association is enhanced by the illustrations on the bottle labels. The label features a chalice, or goblet/footed cup, surrounded by a floral design. A chalice is often depicted as the vessel of the Holy Grail, although during the medieval period it was also sometimes depicted as a platter. The Quest for the Holy Grail was a popular part of the legendary Arthurian cycle involving Lancelot and/or Galahad during the medieval period, particularly in the work of Chrétien de Troyes and Wolfram von Eschenbach. Now, however, the Quest is often more readily associated with the Knights Templar, for example in the 1989 film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
