Gifts for Wine Lovers

It can be challenging to shop for presents for a special someone who has it all, especially if your someone has discerning taste when it comes to wine. The good news is that you don’t have to be a wine expert to wow them. With a little thoughtful planning, you can find a perfect wine present that will leave the wine lover in your life raising a glass to good health and happiness.

Why Do We Gift Wine?

Unlike other traditional presents, gifting wine invites friends and loved ones to partake in sharing a rich sensory experience. From the ‘pop’ of the cork, to the ‘clink’ of glasses, all the way through to the last drop in the bottle - you swirl, sip, and savor wine over bountiful meals and lively conversation. Wine lovers know that a special bottle will enrich their tables.

The Best Gift for Wine Lovers

The best wine drinker gifts take into account the taste preferences of the individual. If you know your wine friend well, then you probably already have a good idea of their favorite wine style and are looking for wine Christmas presents.

Why not pick out a bottle of wine that they’ll love?

Does your enthusiast like bold, powerful red wines? If you have a red wine lover in your life, be sure to check out the Wine Shop for individual bottles that range from Pinot Noir to Zinfandel. You’ll find a bottle of red for everyone's palate.

Or do they prefer the filigreed elegance of Champagne?

If they favor bubbly, then the Wine Shop carries individual bottles of Champagne perfect for a classy Christmas or New Year’s celebration.

Some wine drinkers only enjoy whites, others are sticklers for reds. Then there are those wine lovers who are open to trying anything and everything!

If you’re unsure of your enthusiast’s style preference, then pay attention the next time you share a glass or ask them about the most memorable bottle they’ve ever had. These are two clues that can help guide you in the right direction.

For the bold red wine lover, the Wine Shop brings you the Napa Wine section. Here you’ll find select bottles of what Napa does so well - the finest vintages of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. This grape marries structure, tannin, and deep black fruit with chocolate and spice. Ideal for those who appreciate the savory pleasures in life. For those that can't get enough Napa Cabernet, the Magnum Special Feature is especially rewarding. A 1.5-Liter bottle of 95-point-rated wine is the perfect gift for someone who appreciates the finer things in life.

If you have a wine aficionado who relishes talking about the endless details of a wine as if it were a beloved sports team, then you know they have a discriminating palate. For these wine lovers, check out the Wine Shop’s 90+ and 93+ point wine section. These wines are rated by leading industry experts and deliver concentration and quality that will grace any table.

Perhaps you have a more health-conscious drinker in your life. Who doesn’t start out the New Year with a resolution or two to live their best life? Visit the Wine Shop’s low-alcohol section. You’ll discover a range of lower-alcohol wines including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Champagne.

Some wine lovers never drink reds, and still, others pass on anything white. Knowing what your wine drinker loves will help steer you in the right direction. Of course, if you’re still unsure what your giftee’s wine tendencies are, then you can never go wrong with a bottle of each!
