IDEAS FOR CHRISTMAS GIFTS

Christmas is coming! Here you will find some suggestions which might help choosing a gift for your wine lover friends.

A Bottle Of Wine

Go classic: Champagne or another ‘traditional-method’ sparkling wine is sure to be greeted with a smile. A Prosecco might also be an option if your friend prefer fruitier wines. Pinot Noir, perhaps from Burgundy or the USA, makes an elegant red wine pairing with festive meals. For white wine lovers you could choose a powerful Meursault from Burgundy or a more delicate Soave from the Veneto in Italy.

Go eccentric: Trying new wines can be exciting and fun, so why not go for an orange wine or a natural wine. This can be a great way to explore new wines and can make for an interesting gift for your friend or loved one. Maybe they will like Poulsard wine from Jura?

Wine Accessories

Decanters: These days they come in all different shapes and sizes, some classic and others more experimental. Sure you will find the right one for every taste.

Wine Openers and Preservers: This makes a very practical gift. Wine openers you can find in many styles and different prices. If you don’t have a huge budget, a vacuum pump wine saver is an effective and inexpensive way to keep wine fresher for longer.

Wine Cooler Bucket: An elegant stainless-steel wine cooler will be the piece de resistance at any dinner party it’s used at. It will help to keep wine at the optimum temperature, even when it’s placed directly onto the dinner table.

A Gift Of Knowledge

Looking for an unforgettable gift? Certified wine courses might be a great option.
