Chinese New Year 2022

February 1, 2022

Chinese New Year celebrates the beginning of a new year on the traditional Chinese calendar. Each Chinese zodiac year begins on Chinese New Year’s Day. In 2022, Chinese New Year begins Tuesday, February 1.The festival is usually referred to as the Spring Festival in mainland China, and is one of several Lunar New Years in Asia.

The Spring Festival is a time of celebration – to welcome the new year with a smile and let fortune and happiness continue. At the same time, the Spring Festival involves somber ceremonies to wish for a good harvest.

Here at Flora Springs, for the fourth year now, we have chosen to celebrate Chinese New Year with a playful, strikingly etched and hand painted magnum of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This year Nat Komes created a dazzling new design, see the 2017 Year of the Tiger Cabernet Sauvignon Magnum.
