A Wine Lover’s Holiday Gift Guide

By Bethany Hill, SacMidtown.com

Black Friday has arrived!

Now I can finally listen to Christmas music without feeling any element of shame. (I may or may not have been enjoying Christmas music since early November. Don’t judge me because I’m jolly.)

Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, many Sacramentans are beginning their holiday shopping (or are at least thinking about it). As a bona-fide wine lover, I’ve compiled a “wine lover’s holiday gift guide” to help you find your wine aficionado friend, family member, or special someone that perfect gift that you know they’ll love.

Decanters
Decanter from Crate and Barrel – $9.00
Allure Aerating Decanter – $29.99
Vivid Wine Decanter & Aerating Funnel Set – $59.95

Wine Glasses

Riedel Wine Glasses – the shape of your wine glass severely affects the taste of your wine. Riedel developed and refined the concept of having different shaped wine glasses correspond to different varietals. Although they are a bit pricey, I believe them to be well worth it. If you prefer Christmas shopping the old fashioned way, you will find Riedel products at Macy’s and William Sonoma to name a few. For those of you who’d rather shop from home, Riedel products are widely available on various websites online.
