One of the most difficult parts of buying a gift for a wine lover is guessing their preferred bottle of wine. An easy solution? Skip the bottle altogether and invest in a gift they can use time and time again. Gifts for wine lovers don’t have to include wine at all. In fact, there are tons of gift options—like fancy glassware or a chic decanter—that don’t come with a cork. 

Gabriella Macari, Director of Operations at Macari Vineyards and Winery, recommends an experience at a local winery, a great bottle of champagne, or a wine book to continue your tasting education. “These kinds of gifts take the pressure off of you to figure out what type of wine to choose,” Macari said. Meanwhile, Robin Wright, Beverage Director at Ci Siamo, recommends a sturdy wine key, champagne stoppers, and more wine books. More importantly, Wright left us with one rule to live by. If you’re at a loss for what to give your favorite wine lover, always remember: No one has enough champagne.

Read on for the best gifts for wine lovers this holiday season.

Beyond Flavour: Wine Tasting by Structure



Wright and Macari agree that when looking for a gift for a wine lover, you can never go wrong with wine books. Macari recommends this one in particular, because it’s a great way to improve your wine knowledge and tasting skills. “Nick, the author, packs his book with vintage and region information and, most importantly, teaches a structure-based approach to wine tasting,” said Macari.
