A wine lover is someone who not only has a glass of his favorite wine from time to time and enjoys it, but also someone who is passionate about everything related to the world of wine. He looks for his favorite wine, finds any chance to get a bottle to taste, enjoys experiences such as visits to wineries or tastings and always has the latest in wine accessories.
If you have family or friends who are wine lovers, you are lucky, here you can find the best gift ideas for Christmas, if they don’t already have everything.
And if it’s for you, we have the best gadgets for your collection, which one are you missing?
An indispensable item that we all usually have at home. But, only wine lovers know all the types and only some have a wide collection of this important tool. We can find from simple models, those with a corkscrew handle or butterfly style, to the most innovative electronic corkscrews.
The best idea to give a corkscrew as a gift to a wine lover, taking into account that he will already have an infinite number of them, is to personalize the model you choose, either with his name, with his initials or with a phrase of great symbolism for both of you.
In the same line as the previous accessory, although it is not so common in all homes. It is also a great idea to opt for a combination of both, that is, to get a corkscrew that includes a capsule cutter. Practical, convenient and compact, what more could you ask for?
Elements to maintain the ideal wine temperature
Every wine lover knows the ideal temperature at which each wine should be drunk. So in the home of any wine lover you can not miss an ice bucket and an individual bottle cooler, in order to serve it at the table at the right temperature.
You can choose, once again, to personalize these gifts, engraving the ice bucket and embroidering the initials on the cooling sleeve, for example.
Best wine serving gifts
A great idea is to buy a set of glasses for the different types of wine, because true wine lovers know how to differentiate them, although for those who do not know about the subject it may seem surprising. But did you know that the selection of a glass is almost as important as the selection of a good wine? This is because, depending on its shape, it allows us to perceive the aromas and flavors more intensely.
Opt for a set of fine and transparent crystal glasses and you will succeed. But, if you want them to have a distinctive touch and to remember the gift, once again we recommend the option of personalizing them, but in a subtle and elegant way.
On the other hand, if the person to whom you want to give the gift is a professional, the best option to surprise him/her is to give him/her a wine decanter, a type of glass that follows AFNOR standards in terms of design and dimensions. A great gift!
Decanters are also a great idea, they allow oxygenating the wine, which, being in contact with the air, the aromas are even more intensified. It is the best way to enhance the flavor of a wine and whoever receives the gift will appreciate it.
Utensils to keep wine in perfect condition
A stopper with an elegant and striking design, a vacuum pump or the latest on the market, a Coravin. With this element, you can serve the wine without even removing the cork, which allows you to keep it in perfect condition for longer. Undoubtedly, you will surprise the recipient of this innovative gift.
And for those who already have everything, the best option is a visit to a winery, where you can enjoy firsthand everything that encompasses winemaking. Many wineries and vineyards, such as Finca Antigua, Finca Montepedroso or Finca Valpiedra offer visits with multiple activities ideal for all wine lovers.
Finally, a nice tasting notebook, personalized and dedicated is always a good option. So that they can take note of all the information about their favorite wines and, in the meantime, remember you.
