Best Wine Gifts for Golfers

The classic vineyard and prosaic country club lawn are each a spectacle of luxurious, rolling green, and sometimes the odd chateau or two – perhaps this is where this ever-so-slightly weird association between the worlds of wine and golf begins. After a little digging, curious enthusiasts of either topic will find that the connection runs much deeper than a mere cosmetic similarity, and we think there must be something in the air (or perhaps the gene pool) that equally attracts certain individuals to both viticulture and this global sporting phenomenon. 

A high proportion of pro golf players either make their own wine, or partner with vineyards. Likewise, multiple high-profile golf events – including the PGA – have an official tournament wine whose bottles are sold by the thousands green-side. 

Culinary writer Bob McGinn proposes a commonality which is ultimately shaped by an objective of difference between the two worlds, saying: “…golf is unique among sports because it is played on various courses, none of which are the same…. Similarly, no two wines of the same varietal, produced by different wineries, are the same. Each winery strives for uniqueness instead of sameness.”

Whatever the serendipity that brings golf and wine together, it makes for a sure-fire shopping list when seeking a gift for the oenophilic golfer in your life. Here’s a quick list of presents guaran-tee’d to put a smile on their face.

6-ish best wine gifts for golfers
