A Very Merry Holiday (Wine) Gift Guide

The Holiday season is upon us! That means that no matter which of the holidays you celebrate at this time, you’ve got parties, gatherings, and reasons to drink a little wine with your friends and family. So we present you with our second annual Holiday Gift Guide for all the gifting occasions in your life.

Be the Host’s FAVORITE

Don’t arrive at the party empty-handed! Bringing a bottle of wine for your host is one of the most traditional and welcome ways to thank a host for opening their home to you. Consider what your host enjoys and gift a bottle they can enjoy after the festivities in a moment of calm. We find that classic styles work best as host gifts. A nice red or white Burgundy or even Champagne is always welcome.

PERFECT PAIRINGS

Duo of Tximista Vermouth

MIX IT UP WITH VERMOUTH 

We’ve all got that friend that makes killer cocktails. (or loves to shake that shaker!) One of the best ways to up that cocktail game is to level up that vermouth. Forget that tired (probably so old its basically dead) green bottle of vermouth sitting on the bar cart. These vermouths will light up your basic cocktail. (They are great over ice or with a splash of sparkling water or wine too… no need to be extra all the time!)

THE BIG RED

Sometimes those big bold fancy bottles of red wine are just begging to be displayed in a pretty decanter. Our Verve Culture Hand Blown Decanter looks beautiful on any table. For a really lovely look grab the matching water glasses too! Might we suggest the a bottle of Château Cos d’Estournel Les Pagodes de Cos to pair with it? It is an elegant, well-structured wine that opens up with aeration. Full of black fruit and black pepper

SAKE LOVERS GIFT SET

We are big fans of sake here at the shop, and we know y’all are too! We asked our friend Niko Yulis to make us some custom sake sets and what he made for us just blew us away. You can see his skill and talent in his attention to detail. They feel great in your hands when you pour, and the sake cups are equally delightful to hold, and they make a special sake feel even more special. Complete the set with a bottle of Terada Honke Shizen No Manma 1.8L, a savory and complex sake from Chibu prefecture made with organic estate-grown rice and house-made koji.
