Wine gift baskets

A fine combination of food and drink, a wine gift basket is appreciated even by those who never imbibe. Looking for that great Bordeaux in a special setting? Wracking your brain to think of the best way to present that perfect port? A wine gift basket is the answer.

Wrap your basket.

Ribbon for decoration.

A wine gift basket may hold just the vintage you've been seeking. Everything from a creative Cabernet to a zingy Zinfandel can be found nestled among a dozen other delightful treats. A wine gift basket can hold that precious Syrah you've been dying for months to try. Or the centerpiece may be a quirky new Gewürztraminer you heard about at a party yesterday.

Bottle sizes range from miniature hotel-type samples to a magnum of champagne. A wine gift basket could be filled out with a dozen small bottles of a favorite varietal. Or, it might be a breathtaking variety that allows you to sample a new wine every month. A giant bottle from your favorite region in France or Italy can form the centerpiece of an outstanding package.

But the wine itself is only the beginning. A wine gift basket is filled with traditional and creative items. Delicious gourmet crackers sit beside irresistible truffles. Chocolates go well with a fine Sangria. Dried apricots and other fruits are the perfect companion to a stellar Chardonnay.

Wine gift baskets are among the finest of an already elite set of options. Filled with fresh fruits, cookies, nuts, and more they make for a gift that will be remembered long after the outstanding Chablis is gone.

Brut champagne might be more to your taste. Surrounded by a fine set of gourmet cheeses, a wine gift basket of champagne will make for a memorable afternoon that can go on late into the evening.

Baskets waiting to be filled with wine and gourmet food.

Get a basket and fill it with food and wine.

Even the container itself is part of a great wine gift basket offering. It can be a traditional dark wicker that reminds you of old Italy. Or it can be a contemporary computer age metal. You may like a sentimental porcelain, or you could go for an all-business gray made from Stealth jet composite plastics. The designs are endless.

Wine gift baskets are appropriate for any occasion. An anniversary is the perfect time to deliver a great vintage. Celebrate with a glass while you munch on a gourmet cracker. There's no better time than a promotion at work to deliver that great Rose partnered with a fine garlic bread stick.

Whether for a personal celebration or a corporate event, a wine gift basket is the finest possible choice. Appreciated by everyone, they'll be treasured for years.

Where to go from here? See wine and food pairing to plan your your wine gift basket, visit the food pantry to choose one of the thousand cheeses for your gift basket, or just go back to our own wine cellar to check for more wine articles.

If your gift consists just of one bottle of wine choose one kitchen cloth, or tea towel, and matching ribbon, fold the cloth and wrap it around the bottle, tie with the ribbon. The kitchen cloth is also a useful present and there is no paper to recycle. If you go for a rustic design and tie with cord, even the cord could be recycled.

If you choose wine, cloth and ribbon carefully, your gift will also be "good ton" and stylish.
