The holidays aren’t that far off, which means it’s time to start thinking about the gifts you will get for friends and family. If you have wine lovers on your list, you’ll love reading through this guide we have compiled. Bring a gift basket to any holiday gathering coming up, from Thanksgiving to Christmas to New Years and everything in between.
We have something for every budget, from the high end with wine chillers and coolers to the low end with cute gadgets such as bottle openers.
Looking to splurge on an amazing gift for the serious wine collector and drinker in your life? Look no further than a wine chiller or cooler, which is so much more than just a mini-fridge. There’s a wide range of price points and features, with the nicer models offering dual temperature zones that allow you to store whites along with reds at optimum temperatures. This is a great gift for the wine lover and entertainer, as they can store anything from 20 wine bottles to 200.
Corkscrews For Vintage Wines
If the wine connoisseur in your life especially enjoys vintage wines, get them a special corkscrew, such as this one from Durand, designed to safely remove fragile and compromised corks, whole and intact, from older, highly valued wines.
Discreet Wine Totes
You can take these on the go anywhere you want, from the beach and pool to the park or on vacation. These are insulated pouches that resemble purses, book bags, and beach bags, where you can add either wine into a flexible bladder or even the bottle itself into a special compartment. Then, simply depress the exterior valve to release the wine into your cup or glass. Voila! Instant wine treat for your next outing. Ssssh…no one has to know a thing.
Wine Books For Beginners
It takes years to become a master of all-things-wine, but it doesn’t mean you can’t get there. If your friend is a newcomer to the world of wine, get them a book for beginners so they can learn the basics. From The Wine Bible to The World Atlas of Wine, these books offer tips from
respected wine writers that will have your friend spouting off vino facts in no time.
Check out these books for beginners as outlined by WineEnthusiast.
Never drink a room-temp Chardonnay again with perfectly chilled glasses every time, such as these Host wine freeze cups. Take the guesswork out of achieving the ideal serving temperature for reds and whites with this beautiful set of stemless wine glasses. Each wine tumbler is capable of maintaining your wine’s temperature better than a standard wine glass, plus they look pretty cool.
Neon Wine Signs
If you love wine, you want everyone to know it. Adorn your home bar with a neon wine sign in a variety of colors. The warm glow is the perfect accessory to any party.
Merlot Infused Coffee
If you have a friend that loves wine and coffee, you need this gift. This Merlot infused coffee has been aged in Merlot wine barrels resulting in a subtle infusion of rich wine notes. After a good meal, you may be torn between having another glass of wine or a warm sip of coffee. Now you can have both!
Wine Club Memberships
Why not give the gift that keeps on giving with wine club memberships? Many wineries along our route offer them, such as Texas Heritage Vineyard, Longhorn Cellars, Grape Creek Vineyards, Barelle Vineyards, Messina Hof and many others. While they all offer different perks, most allow you first access to exclusive wines, invitations to members-only parties, discounts on wines, on-site restaurant discounts, free shipping on bottles, and complementary glasses of wine.
Sometimes the best gifts are not things at all, but experiences the recipient will cherish for many years to come. It costs just $39.99 for an all-day pass for the hop-on, hop-off bus at 290 Wine Shuttle.

Plus, pick-ups at each winery are scheduled every 15 minutes for a convenient, affordable way to enjoy Texas wine country.
