While it remains debatable that every day should indeed be “wine day”, Wednesday May 25th is officially National Wine Day! That’s right, today is the perfect opportunity to not only pop open a bottle of your favorite wine, but it’s also a great reason to spoil a special wine-lover in your life. So go ahead, celebrate National Wine Day and raise a toast to your favorite connoisseur or casual sipper with these noteworthy wine gifts!
From the deeply-rooted families that produce a few of our favorite wines, Caymus and Silver Oak, come two California labels that are packed and ready for an unforgettable tasting: Emmolo Sauvignon Blanc – a unique expression of soft body, firm acidity and the fresh, clean aromas of honeysuckle and tangerine, and Twomey Russian River Pinot Noir, an expansion of the vineyards and cellars of the 75-year-old Silver Oak winery, rich in red berries and creamy spices. These two wines are nestled in our signature leather carrying tote with a complete set of stainless steel tools, creating a generous gift with a character that won’t soon be forgotten.
Italy’s Tormaresca, an expert blend with rich flavors of black cherry and sage, is paired with France’s Louis Jadot Beaujolais-Villages Gamay, a full-bodied and intense French Burgundy with notes of strawberry and spice. These otherworldly wines are accompanied by gourmet fare from around the world, presenting an international tour of tastes and textures in one keepsake trunk.
Is there a white wine lover in your life? They’re sure to adore our California White Wine Trio, featuring three hand selected California whites – two Chardonnays and a Chenin Blanc. Crisp, elegant flavors of apple blossom, melon, honeysuckle and white peach are ready to enchant the tastebuds and grace any chicken, seafood or salmon dinner.
If you’re shopping for a red wine enthusiast, the Great American Red Wine Trio is the perfect gift. It features three bold American 90 point rated reds – Justin Cabernet Sauvignon, Hogue Genesis Syrah, and Columbia Crest H3 Merlot. Each wine offers its own rich array of complex tasting notes ranging from fruit and oak to mocha, espresso and licorice.
Berry-rich Sterling Central Coast Cabernet, crisp Elk Cove Willamette Valley Pinot Gris, and an option to include a third bottle of the esteemed Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon elevate this gift to remarkable prestige. Paired with gourmet sweets and savory companions, this gift leaves a long-lasting impression.
Go all out and give a distinguished gift of fine wine, beautifully presented. A bottle of 2012 Opus One, compacted and pure, with the aromas and flavors of blackcurrants, blueberries, dark chocolate, fresh herbs and forest floor. Full bodied with seamless tannins and wonderful balance, this wine will arrive in a stunning lacquered burlwood box, handmade to the highest standards of craftsmanship.
