Wine4Food 2020 Holiday Gift Guide 1500 1500 Carlos Lacayo

Getting the perfect gift can seem like such an insurmountable task—and sometimes, we can’t even figure out where to start. Although we might not be able to help you with everything on your list, we can certainly help you with the wine lovers near and dear to your heart. Here are five gift ideas that deserve to be under your favorite wine lover’s Christmas tree this holiday season.

Wine Set

Cork Genius’ Four-Piece Wine Set

Getting a bottle of wine open can take some effort. Cork Genius makes opening up that bottle and the tasting experience a breeze with their genius four-piece wine set. Each set comes with a wine opener, a decanter, a foil cutter, and a vacuum sealer. After all, the faster you can get that bottle open, the sooner you can get back to rockin’ around the Christmas tree!

O-Neh-Da and Eagle Crest Wines

Hemlock Lake’s O-Neh-Da and Eagle Crest Vineyards was established in 1872, making it the third oldest winery in America. They utilize locally grown grapes and sustainable vineyard practices to create some of the best natural wines available today. Some personal favorites include the Purple Pause, a deep garnet, fruity and sweet red with big grape flavors, and their Mosel Style Riesling, a white with expressions of white peaches and Bartlett pears.

Yolo Rum

Give their palette a brief break with this special nightcap. Former NFL cornerback Nolan Carroll (who was previously featured on an episode of What’s In My Fridge) along with a great team created a rum made from rare strains of sugar cane found only in small areas of Central America and the Caribbean. Whether you pick up Yolo Silver or Yolo Gold, this is a gift that’s sure to please.

Sommify: A Blind Wine Tasting Game

Here’s something for the aspiring sommelier and game night host. Sommify, a blind-tasting board game created by Connor Taylor and Jessica Bush, turns a wine tasting into game night while subtly teaching you how to blind taste test like a somm. Sommify was fully funded on Kickstarter in less than 24 hours and would look great under a Christmas tree.

Wine Chocolates

Many things go great with wine, but there’s something about a nice wine and chocolate pairing that just can’t beat. Hedonist Artisan Chocolates offers great stocking stuffers: check out their Candy Cane Chocolate Bark, Holiday Spice Truffle Bags, and the Espresso Chocolate Bark. The House of Knipschildt has been renowned for creating exquisite quality artisan chocolate, and their Mulled Wine Chocolate Collection checks all the boxes. Each chocolate is filled with red wine and mulling spice-infused ganache. Whichever way you go, it’s sue to please.
