If picking up a random bottle is your go-to, consider one of these thoughtful options instead. Wine is always a safe bet for gift giving. Whether you’re celebrating a bonafide oenophile or a casual drinker, a thoughtful gift that elevates their favorite glass of vino is sure to be appreciated—though it can be tricky to know what kind of bottle to get.
“If I don’t know what wine they prefer, I always give one white and one red,” says Dawn Agnew, General Manager and Hospitality Director at Eco Terreno Wines & Vineyards. “I would choose a Sauvignon Blanc and a Cabernet or Bordeaux Blend.”
But if you want to get more creative, there are tons of other gift ideas that any wine lover is sure to appreciate. We spent hours researching wines and wine-related gadgets, scouring the Internet to find the best options that go beyond a last-minute bottle or gift card. We also asked Agnew for expert advice on shopping for a wine-themed gift that’s sure to impress.
