There’s something about giving the gift of wine that hits the mark for just about any occasion. From engagements and birthdays to thank you’s and congratulations, wine says it all! There are so many ways to make the gift of wine that much more meaningful and memorable for the person pulling the cork on the receiving end. Here are 5 gift delivery ideas for any occasion that will take the gift of wine to the next level. The Occasion: Birthday Dinner With Family The Perfect Wine Gift: The Argaux Blind Tasting Kit Why? The Argaux Blind Tasting Kit can make a great gift for a variety of occasions, but there’s something about tasting wine that’s wrapped in tissue paper to conceal the identity that brings a whole new meaning to family dinner. When with family, our competitive side shines and finally, we have a buffer between “pass the bread” and politics. There’s no better way to direct everyone’s attention to what matters most: what’s in the glass! The Occasion: We’re Engaged! The Perfect Wine Gift: Year Of Firsts Why? Whether it’s an engagement gift or for the newlyweds, a Year of Firsts is the gift that keeps on giving. Choose between 6 – 12 bottles of wine and select an occasion for each bottle. The couple will be enjoying this gift all year long. The Year of Firsts is so much more than a gift in celebration of their marriage. It’s celebrating all the firsts that deserve a toast. From First Thanksgiving and First Dinner Party, to First Addition To The Family and First Anniversary. There’s even a bottle for Just Because, because why not? This gift helps the newlyweds cherish not only the milestones, but the little things too. The Occasion: Thank You, Merci, Gracias, Grazie The Perfect Wine Gift: Prix Fixe by Argaux Why? What shows your appreciation more than wine they would probably never discover on their own, delivered to their front door? Prix Fixe by Argaux is a great way to explore the world of wine and try new wines. The wines included in each month’s delivery are small production, family owned, responsibly farmed and rather hard to find on your own. Each month the team of sommeliers at Argaux take turns selecting the theme and wine. Inside each delivery are two bottles of wine, tasting notes, and creative material unique to the somm and theme that month. For example, there may be a recipe included to pair with the wine selections or perhaps a map of the wine region for reference. After receiving a Prix Fixe delivery, they’ll be thanking you for introducing them to new wines and convenient wine delivery. The Occasion: Congratulations! The Perfect Wine Gift: Spritz Kit Why? Congratulations call for bubbles, but why not bubbles with a splash of vermouth or anyway you like it? The cool kids understand the concept of l’apero and the essence of an Aperitif, an essential component to any dinner party. The Spritz Kit includes a bottle of bubbles alongside a bottle of vermouth. Vermouth is made from fortified wine (wine and a neutral spirit), plus herbs & spices – which give it intense flavors and aromas. They’re usually between 15%-18% ABV and are a key component in some of the world’s most popular cocktails. Add a bottle of Vino Primo Vermouth to their bar cart or liquor cabinet and you will open up a world of cocktail possibilities. They won’t need a reason anymore, they’ll be spritzin’ all year long thanks to you! The Occasion: When You’re Out Of Ideas, And They Have Everything They Need The Perfect Wine Gift: Wine 101 ft. Vanessa Price’s Big Macs & Burgundy Book Why?

Not only does the kit include the book itself which dives into all things food and wine pairing for the real world, but it also comes with wines to pair alongside a variety of suggested foods from sushi to cheetos!
