Finding the Perfect Wine Gift

Aug 17, 2007
You will want to spend hours finding the perfect wine gift for the wine lover on your list, but you may not have to. There is no end to the possibility of finding a good gift because there is no end to the possibility of the gift itself.

In other words, wine gifts come with such variety and variance that you could wind up wanting to take a few home for yourself after you have bought something for everyone on your list. Look for something that is a little funky and fresh, and try to buck tradition by sharing it with your friends.

In order to get in the mood for finding rare wine gift items, you probably want to check out your local food wine magazine. The food wine magazine is a virtual breeding ground for traders and swappers, wanting to mix and match their own personal wine and wine accessory collection with someone that has something that excites their proverbial panache for interesting items. Don't be afraid to barter for some of these items, too, as most food wine magazines carry a section that meets that particular need of its customers.

For the wine enthusiast on your list, you may want to consider giving them a gift certificate to a winery. Most gift certificates to wineries involve tours and wine tasting, so your favorite wine enthusiast would be in grape heaven with an endless array of opportunities to sample wine and to see how it is made. Wineries are excellent places to look for gifts, so stop by one yourself and have a look around to jog your senses.

Another unique idea for a wine gift is ice wine. This wine is one of the most popular, but expensive, little extras on the wine scene that creates satisfaction and excitement wherever it seems to go. Ice wine is a type of dessert wine that comes from grapes that were, you guessed it, frozen.

Ice wine was originally discovered by accident, but the creators of good ice wine quickly found a formula that works. The sugars and other dissolved solids do not freeze, but the water does. In turn, that creates a sweet taste to the wine that comes out of the concentrated deep freeze. It can be a delicious treat for wine lovers and makes a perfect wine gift.

A wine gift package never fails as a perfect wine gift. Usually containing several options of whites, reds and in-between's, a wine gift package can prompt the wine lover to discover new tastes and flavors and try plenty of new combinations. The best thing about a wine gift package is that they are available nearly everywhere wines are sold and are reasonably affordable.

Finding the ideal wine gift for the wine lover on your list can seem complicated, but it doesn't have to be. With a little bit of creativity, you can track down the best possible gift and end up giving your loved ones an experience that they won't soon forget.

Finding a great wine gift doesn't have to drain your pocketbook, either, so you can shop with confidence and know that your money is being well spent.
