Holiday Wine Gift Guide
Welcome to your wine gift guide for the holiday season! There are so many reasons why wine makes a great gift – it’s universally enjoyed, can be shared among friends and family, and has many different varietals to explore. Whether you’re looking for something special for your wine connoisseur friend, or just want to surprise someone with a bottle of good wine, this wine gift guide is here to help.
A festive selection of wine would definitely make any celebration even more special. Reds such as Carmenere and Cabernet Sauvignon are perfect options since they pair well with most holiday foods. If your recipient prefers whites, try something like Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc.
Malbec and Merlot are also varietals that make great gifts. Malbec is a full-bodied red with notes of blackberry, dark cherry, and spice. It pairs well with holiday dishes like beef or grilled food. Merlot is another full-bodied varietal with smooth tannins. Its flavor profile includes notes of plum, tobacco, and cocoa which goes perfectly with roasted meats and dishes such as stews.
Build a Wine Sampler
Another great wine gift is a wine sampler. These sets usually include several different varietals, so your recipient can explore more wine options and find their favorite wine. You can make your own wine sampler by purchasing a few different wines – for example a white, a red, and rosé.
Gift a Wine Basket
Giving wine as a gift is one of the most classic ways to show you care. Whether it's for a coworker or friend, it's always sure to be a crowd pleaser. Wine gift baskets are great options if you want to add some extra personalization and flair.
They can be customized with a variety of items including corkscrews, cheese plates, candies, or even other bottles of wine. No matter how you present it, wine gifts make an excellent gift for someone special!
