From the Coravin Model 2 System, which ingeniously allows you to enjoy a glass of your bottle of Roar without actually uncorking the bottle to the simple but fun wine bottle thermometer and Riedel’s gorgeous Black Tie Decanter there are hundreds of gift ideas for the wine lover which can go from bank breaking to simple, clever and reasonably priced.
I always think it’s dangerous to give wine to a real wine lover as they tend to know exactly what they like and can be slightly but politely sniffy if you give them something not quite up to the mark. Wine lovers are easy, however, to buy for with all the ingenious cork screws, wine aerators and subscriptions to publications such as Decanter.
Give a real wine lover something interesting and/or useful then hopefully they’ll share with you their prized bottle of Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion. If you’re very lucky.
