Gift Packages

Let our staff recommend a selection of fine wines and accessories for the connoisseur in your life.  Based on a few helpful hints we can customize the perfect gift that will challenge, educate and satisfy any palate.

Here are some things to consider when preparing a gift:

- What do they like to drink?  Some people have very diverse tastes and enjoy a wide variety of flavors while other people seem to like only Cabernet for some reason.  Do a little detective work.  We'll do the rest.

- How would you score their wine savvy on a scale of 1 to 10?  A score under 5 would suggest that we should stick with some straight-forward choices.  6 to 8 means they might appreciate some of the classic wines of Europe.  A score of 9 or 10 means the gloves are off, obscure blends from unknown places to challenge to most discriminating sommelier.

- Have they been to a wine producing area?  A nice gesture can turn into an act of great thoughtfulness with just a little consideration.  If they went to Sardegna for their honeymoon ten years ago, a couple of bottles of Cannonau can bring back all those feelings of romance and nostalgia.

- Do they have all the gadgets?  Rather than giving the standard two or three bottles of wine, consider giving a wine decanter and one really nice bottle to pour into it.  Now you've given both a delicious gift and a fun activity combined with a science experiment and a beautiful hand-made piece of glass that can be enjoyed for years to come.

- Do they like to read?  Everybody needs a good wine book.
