5 Red Wine Gift Sets for the Red Wine Lover in Your Life

With the holidays fast approaching, it's never too early to start thinking about the perfect Christmas gift boxes for that special someone. And if that someone is a red wine lover, then a wine-themed gift basket may be just the pairing you’re looking for. Check out these fun and classy gift ideas for wine lovers.

Two bottles and a glass of red wine

Why Gift Red Wines?

More than any other gift, perhaps, red wine symbolizes the joys of sharing in the tradition of breaking bread with others. While you can certainly choose to drink red wines as cocktails, more often than not these bottles belong on the dinner table, surrounded by warm conversation and steaming dishes.

Cabernet belongs with roasted meats and hearty pasta dishes. Pinot Noir sings when paired with risottos, herbed sauces, and cheese boards. Gifting red wine invites your wine lover to share in the experience of toasting a glass to good company.

And unlike most white wines, red wines have the added benefit of being able to age. Red wines have tannins - that grippy mouthfeel when you take a sip - that white wines lack. Tannins, together with the wine’s acid, act as natural preservatives.

So whether your friend or loved one decides to pop the cork immediately or opts to hold onto the bottle, your red wine gift will age gracefully and be ready to drink on any occasion.

Selecting red wine holiday gift baskets doesn’t have to be overwhelming, even if you’re not a wine drinker yourself. If you’re not sure where to start, ask your red wine enthusiast about their favorite wines. Find out what wines they enjoy and let that be your guide.

Browse our Wine Shop to discover a specially curated selection of wine-themed holiday gift sets. You’ll find gift ideas for wine lovers that come with the finest hand-select bottles sourced from small, quality-focused estates. Sending class Christmas gift boxes has never been easier!

How concentrated is the fruit? All of these qualities will allow a red wine to age with grace. If you have a wine aficionado in your life, then these will surely be a much-appreciated gift for any serious wine collector.
