Holiday Gift Guide: For the Wine Lover

Issue 47 · Dining and Entertaining · November 23, 2012

The wine world can take itself pretty seriously at times (or maybe I've lived in the Napa Valley too long). Here are five design savvy gifts for the design-savvy drinker that will pass muster with even the most discriminating oenophile.

N.B.: To make sure we've got everyone on your list covered, see all of our gift guides to date in our House Gifts section.

Wine Baskets

Above: Send a bottle in a French Wine Basket, a mini-hamper of sorts. $16 from Bell'ochio.

White Resin Ice Bucket

Above: Good ice buckets are hard to come by; this one hits the mark. White Resin Ice Bucket with leather handles by Tina Frey; $140 from Horne.

Wrap It All

Above: Bring your host a bottle in one of these hand knitted bottle carriers. The Wrap It All is $24 from Alder & Co.

Corkscrew

Above: Forget fancy contraptions, even the most seasoned sommeliers stick to a simple cork screw opener. We like this Italian-made Corkscrew; $8 at Brook Farm General Store.

Modern House Wines

Above: If you are looking for a quaffable gift, Swanson Vineyards' bold and witty labels pack a visual punch:Modern House Wines: $25 each.
