If you loved last week’s Holiday Guide to Gifting Wine, featuring some of our favorite budget-friendly holiday selections, you’re going to want to check out part two. This time around, we’re sharing a few Reserve and Collector Series wines, for that extra special gifting occasion.
Check out our selections below, and if you see one you’d like to try, don’t wait! Some of these wines are limited, so once they’re gone… they’re gone.
For the California Dreamer
Last week we shared some of our favorite everyday California wines. If there’s someone on your list who loves a great Cali red and you want to surprise them with something unique, try one of our new Collector Series wines. For instance, our limited-edition Napa Valley Mountain Cuvée is a knock-out red blend, named one of the 20 Best Christmas Wines of 2020 by Good Housekeeping.
Our top picks: Lot 192 Napa Valley Mountain Cuvée, Lot 190 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
For the one who enjoys the finer things
It can be daunting choosing a gift for the person who has everything. Since they’ll be spending lots of time at home this winter, cozy up their at-home experience with a new favorite wine. And knowing this person has discerning tastes, impress them with a higher-end selection from an interesting region.
Our top picks: Lot 191 Cafayate Valley Malbec, Lot 193 Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir
Tip: add a bow and personalized card for an easy, beautifully packaged gift like Megan from @shadesofpinck did!
For the home chef
Everyone has that home chef in their life who makes whipping up gourmet dishes look easy. And since every special meal deserves an equally special wine, we suggest gifting them with the perfect food-friendly red and white duo. They’ll always have an easy pairing on-hand thanks to you.
For the Prosecco aficionado
There’s something inherently festive about a bottle of bubbly that we just love this time of year. For a true Prosecco lover who imbibes in bubblies year-round, spice up their rotation with a step up from their everyday pick. The historic region of Conegliano Valdobbiadene has been producing and perfecting Prosecco for over three centuries, so the lucky recipient of this wine will no doubt be wow’d by this one.
