What Are Great Gifts For Wine Connoisseurs?

List: Posted: 12/10/10

If someone in your life loves wine, why not check out great gifts for wine connoisseurs next time you need a gift for that person? There are lots of gifts for people who love a good glass (or two!) of their favorite tipple. Here are just a few...


Great gifts for wine lovers, of course, must include actual wine. But make it a good bottle, not a bottle of two-buck chuck from the local gas station. If you need a quick last-minute gift, head to a specialty store and ask for some advice on what the best bottle of wine you can get for your money is. If you already know what your connoisseur likes, you can choose that way. Otherwise, just take the advice of a knowledgeable salesperson. You don’t have to buy the most expensive bottle in the store, but great gifts should always be something that people wouldn’t buy for themselves - so go for the fancy bottle if you like.


Wine baskets also make great gifts for wine lovers. These can be great gifts if your friends are long distance, as well. You can order wine gift baskets online and have them shipped to just about anywhere. Many times these gifts will come with a variety of wines as well as cheeses, crackers, or chocolates. You can get baskets in different sizes so these great gifts are good for about any occasion.


Wine subscriptions and clubs also make great gifts for the wine connoisseur. Give them a chance to try a new bottle of wine every month by purchasing a yearlong wine club membership. Or how about a vineyard tour, which usually ends with a tasting? Jump online and see if their local area is anywhere near one of these very popular events. Some vineyards even offer hot air balloon flights over their vineyards, such as the popular Napa Valley Champagne flight in Southern California.


Other cheaper gifts for wine lovers include wine books and recipe books. Sometimes you can get cookbooks that have wine pairings right in them, like restaurant menus. This can be fun for wine lovers who also enjoy cooking.  These are all great gifts for wine connoisseurs. The problem now is just choosing one!
