How to gift the perfect bottle of wine


“Many of us just want to enjoy a good glass of wine without thinking about it. So sometimes keeping it simple might be the best way to find the perfect present” Jane Masters, MW.

A bottle of good wine often makes the perfect present for a holiday host. But gifting wine can sometimes be a bit intimidating. For Masters, the most important thing about buying wine for someone else is to find out what wine styles they like.


Knowing what your friend likes, you can select something that fits the bill but is a bit different and widens their repertoire. For example, if they love Shiraz from Australia, why not try one from Chile, where it is also called Syrah?


A great alternative is gifting a wine club membership, which gives members access to exclusive wines and is the perfect present for new enthusiasts and aficionados alike.
