21 Grams is an artistic collaboration between Waters Winery, Gramercy Cellars and artist Makoto Fujimura that reflects the inspiration of the soul in creating fine wine and fine art.

This exclusive, 100-case bottling is made from the finest lots of Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon from the cellars of Waters and Gramercy. The final blend from each vintage renders exquisite balance, intensity, layered complexity and a long finish. The label changes with each vintage, and showcases Fujimura’s modern abstract art using the ancient Japanese technique of Nihonga.

Waters and Gramercy donate proceeds from the sale of each bottle of 21 Grams to the International Arts Movement, a non-profit organization created by Fujimura to gather artists and creative catalysts from around the world to address the deep questions of art, faith and humanity.

In the early 1900’s, Dr. Duncan MacDougall hypothesized that 21 grams was the weight lost by a human body upon death. While not scientifically proven, this figure has become synonymous with the weight of the human soul.
