Tips, Tricks & Suggestions for Christmas Gifting

It's the most wonderful time of the year, and what better way to spread holiday cheer than with a bottle of wine? Whether you're gifting it to a wine connoisseur or a casual sipper, choosing the right wine can make all the difference.

So, grab your corkscrew and get ready to sleigh your Christmas presents with these tips for selecting the perfect wines.

1. What's their Flavour?

When it comes to wine, everyone has their own preferences.

Some like it sweet, some like it dry, and some like it somewhere in between. So, before you start shopping, do a little detective work and find out what flavours your giftee enjoys. Are they a fan of fruity reds or crisp whites?

Knowing their flavour profile will help you narrow down your options.

Try either our Argentinean Icons or South African Specials as a great all-round wine pair that no one could possibly dislike!

2. Consider the Occasion

Is your gift for a cozy night by the fire or a festive holiday party?

The occasion can play a big role in choosing the right wine.

For a romantic evening, a bottle of velvety red wine like a Merlot or Pinot Noir can set the mood. If it's a lively gathering, opt for a sparkling wine to add a touch of celebration!

3. Go for the Unexpected

Why settle for the ordinary when you can give the extraordinary?

Instead of reaching for the same old bottle, surprise your loved ones with something unique. Explore lesser-known grape varieties or regions that are known for producing exceptional wines. Not only will it make for an interesting gift, but it might also introduce them to a new favorite.

Our Bulgarian range always has something special to be discovered.

4. Pair it up

Wine and food are like a match made in culinary heaven.

If your giftee is a foodie, consider pairing the wine with a delicious treat.

A rich Cabernet Sauvignon goes perfectly with a juicy steak - The Auctioneer (Napa Valley, USA) or Big G (Franschhoek, South Africa) - while a crisp Sauvignon Blanc or an equally fresh and citrussy Muscadet complements seafood dishes.

Not only will they get to enjoy a fantastic bottle of wine, but they'll also have the perfect pairing to enhance their dining experience.

5. Set the Budget

Wine comes in all price ranges, so it's essential to set a budget before you start shopping.

You don't have to break the bank to find a great bottle of wine.

There are plenty of affordable options that taste just as good as their pricier counterparts. Remember, it's the thought that counts.

Our range starts at £8.50 per bottle and our pre-wrapped gifts at £34.00 per two bottles.

We're always on-hand to give our advice to provide the best solution to your required styles and budgets.


So, there you have it, a guide to choosing the best wines for Christmas presents. Remember, wine is meant to be enjoyed, so don't be afraid to have a little fun with your selection.
