A Good Gift to Give or Get
Wine. It's not just a pretty bottle. It's not just
a delicious drink. It's tasteful - literally and figuratively. Wine
is a terrific gift to give and to get. Here are a few tips for buying
Select a wine that you, personally, are eager to
drink It might be a bottle that you've tasted before and enjoyed.
It might be a wine that you've heard or read about and are interested
in sampling. Like with any gift purchase, it's always a better gift
if it's something that fits your taste as well as the taste of the
person to whom you are bringing this gift.
Choose according to both preference and price. There
are a lot of different wines to choose from at a lot of different
prices. Most expensive does not best. Determine the type of wine that
you want, red or white, dry or semi dry, imported or domestic and
then look for taste value for your money.
Try to match the wine to the occasion. If you are invited to a picnic
lunch, choose a light white. Buy it ahead of time and chill so that
the wine is well appreciated at the time it is served. For a formal
dinner party, a dry red would be advised. If you don't know what to
expect, be creative.
Don't be disappointed if your wine is not served.
Some hosts just don't serve wine. Others have already chosen the wine
they wish to serve. If you've bought a quality bottle of wine, know
that it will be enjoyed at some other time and your thoughtfulness
will be remembered. When in doubt, bring wine. Wine is a good, appropriate
gift for any occasion - other than a child's birthday party. While
it might be a matter of taste, wine doesn't go bad too quickly, doesn't
have to match a color scheme, is both unisex and one size fits all
and it can always be recycled.
Yarden Mount Hermon is not the only wine on the
market It might be the wine most often bought, but it is not the only
choice you have. Be daring. No need to go for the tried and true and
in this case, boring. Show that you have taste and go for another
bottle any other bottle. Your host will thank you.
Purchase a gift certificate at an eLuna restaurant. A great gift for
the eating public!
