Wine Accessories for Gifts
So, for a gift you want to purchase a bottle of wine. Did you know that the popularity of wine is widespread? Getting a bottle of wine and putting it into a brown gift bag is cheesy. Your gift is for someone special and not some ordinary person. A true wine lover not only loves to drink it, but share it with special people. Your gift should come with one or two accessories making it personable and attractive to the recipient of your gift.
The wine bag or tote will make your gift appealing to that special friend. It makes your bottle of wine, even if it is empty, special and something to be kept. Wine bags and totes come in a variety of sizes, colors, and styles. They are available in wine stores or local shops, even grocery and drug stores. If you are handy with a needle and thread or know someone who is, you can make them yourself with some beautiful fabric, glue and ribbon. You can also look for unique shops, vintage, antiques, even at Goodwill Stores.
Depending on how well you know the recipient, a corkscrew is required. Make sure you pair your bottle of wine with a corkscrew, what type depends on your budget: and ordinary or a stylish one.
There is nothing more enjoyable than sipping wine from a wine goblet or glass. However did you know that their sizes are not just for the sake of style and that the have certain purposes? Tall wine goblets are better paired with red wines, because once you pour it into a tall wine goblet the aroma and flavors of the wine emerge out of the goblet just in time for drinking: thus holding its original taste. Red wines are bolder and bigger in taste so red wine goblets are larger.
On the other hand if you are buying a white wine choose the short goblet, its bowl is more U shape and upright than that of be the red wine goblet allowing the aromas to be released while also maintaining a cooler temperature. The white wine goblet style that’s best for younger whites has a slightly larger opening directing the wine to the tip and sides of the tongue to taste it sweetness. The goblet for more mature white wines will be straighter and taller to dispense the wine to the back and sides of the tongue to taste its bolder flavors.
Why not help your recipient start their collection of wine (that’s if the have not already)? Why not give that person a wine rack with the bottle of wine? You can choose between a stainless wine rack or wooden, with choosing from contemporary to rustic. There are so many different designs of wine racks to be found. Depending on the taste of your friend whether their style is an old classic look or a modern touch, you have a large range to choose from. There are a few racks that are even made for storing wine inside the refrigerator. Wine bottles have to be kept and stored with utmost care. Wine racks old the bottles in contact with the cork, thereby preventing any loss of taste or smell of delicate liquids.
