The Best Wine Gifts this Christmas
It’s Christmas time and you’re not- NOT gonna go a little bit overboard with imbibing. If you have tonnes of party invitations lined up and do not wish to arrive at every party empty-handed, worry not. We have prepared a list of delectable wine choices that are just perfect for gifting. Gifting wine can be tricky especially when you don’t know the wine preferences of the recipient. There are thousands of varieties of wine grapes in the world and when you enter a wine shop you might end up feeling like there are 10,000 different bottles of wine around you. Our list below should help you out in your time of need and help you pick just the right wine for your friends and family. From a cl***ic Chardonnay to a fine bottle of cognac, our pick of wine gifts has something in store for every refined drinker.
If they like them some White Wine
This is the perfect white wine to get the party started. A Chardonnay from Rombauer is easy to drink and bound to appeal to all the wine lovers and even the ones that poo-poo on white wine. The notes of this particular bottle feature captivating spicy apples, almond croissant, honey peaches and the freshest pear tart impressions to tickle the nose. Getting thirsty yet?
If Fancy Bubbly is what brings in the holiday cheer
This is the perfect bottle of Champagne to gift to someone. Why? Its not too expensive, it looks fancy, it’s somewhat rare at 100k bottles/year production, and they’ll have no clue how much you paid for it. All of those equal a win-win in my book!
If impressing the ladies is your thing
The supremely festive and elegantly symbolic limited-edition bottle which is aptly titled “Tribute to French Art-de-Vivre” takes wine lovers on an enchanting journey. Since it is Moët anyone receiving this bottle will think you are one fancy pants *** person, and even if they are an avid Moët drinker they will appreciate the look and the limited edition aspect of it. Show up to a party with this bottle in your hand and everyone will remember this epic gift.
If you are trying to impress wine aficionados
When you know you have to pick up wine for a wine connoisseur or someone that just loves Italian wines, then you must think out of the box (sorry no simple bottle of Pinot Pal). So what better way to do so than surprising them with something unique like a Barolo straight out of Italy. This wine hails from Northern Italy’s Piedmont region. It’s a full-bodied “big” red wine, extremely tannic, and expensive. For a red wine aficionado, this wine is a sheer delight, we recommend the Poderi Aldo Conterno Romirasco Bussia Barolo DOCG it’s not as expensive as others but one of the best.
If they prefer something a bit stronger
D’Ussé XO Cognac
This bottle of D’usse is handcrafted at the Château de Cognac SAS in France, renowned for composing fine distilled white wine for more than 200 years. This uncompromising cognac delivers complex flavors of ripe blackberry and apricot, combined with a subtle punch of dark chocolate and walnut, climaxing in an exceptional taste; a perfect wine for a Christmas feast. Most importantly for this list, it was at least made from wine.
If something imported from France will make them wet their pants
Château Poujeaux, Moulis
If you are visiting a set of friends you’re not too tight with and do not wish to go all out and splurge on a bottle of wine (Like the Barolo) then the Château Poujeaux is your best bet. This wine proves that exquisite wine doesn’t have to be expensive as it looks and tastes like one of those pricey wines.
If they already have enough wine but you still want to impress
Riedel has brought out this new edition which is ideal for young and wild wines that stay oxygenated from this decanter’s dual decanting function, plus look how cool that thing looks! These crystal glass decanters are handmade and mouth blown in Austria, making each one of them unique and more importantly a unique and classy Christmas gift. Imagine one of those at the dinner table!
If our first white wine suggestion wasn’t fancy enough for you
The “Art Series” flaunts Leeuwin’s most lush & aged wines from the vintage era. This Chardonnay has a flawless, pure and elevated effect on the nose, heightened by notes of Nashi pears, limes, white peach, and fig. It boasts a flavor that has concentration, with clarity and purity on the palate. This wine will not only please the avid wine drinker but the art admirer as well.
If it’s an interesting red wine that will impress
This highly acclaimed Pinot Noir is curated by Bouchard Finlayson in the internationally acclaimed wine region of Walker Bay in South Africa. The nose is fragrant and the palate portrays tropical fruit flavors of litchi, granadilla, and guava. The perfect accompaniment for noshing on a Christmas bird.
If a simple bottle of wine won’t do as a gift
We can’t help but suggest one of our BroBasket’s as an awesome wine gift for Christmas or your next party.

If you are reading this and still haven’t found a wine
MaCallan single malt 18 year scotch
And lastly, we wanted to suggest something bold and different in case this list didn’t quite do it for you and maybe you are actually looking for a liquor, rather than wine. The Macallan single malt 18-year-old scotch is an absolute gifting classic. This beautiful bottle is characterized by the affluent color, aroma, and taste of the alcohol with whispers of dried fruits, spices and orange making it the quintessential Christmas gift for the booze lovers in your life.
