Part 1 of "The 12 Days of Wine Christmas" – Why not Wine? Some Gift Pack Suggestions

Welcome to Simple Hedonisms second annual “The Twelve Days of Wine Christmas” – a series that was a big hit last year. The goal of the article is to share ideas for wine related gifts.

We are off to a late start, and I may be out of pocket in a week, so lets get started, and we may have order female viagra 2 posts many days.

It’s getting close but its not too late to buy wine and have it shipped as a gift for the holidays, Of course, one can also always treat yourself to a special gift as well.

Tomorrow is officially the ‘last day’ to ship wine and guarantee for Christmas, but if you are a day or too late, don’t fret, especially in California. Besides anyone I know, would be ecstatic to receive great wine a few days after Christmas as well!

Winery Specials

Like many industries, this is the biggest sales volume time of the year, and wine is no exception. Many wineries are offering bundles and Holiday packs, that represent a great value for small lot wines – great for a gift, or for your own holiday enjoyment.

I am going to feature a couple of great picks, but do also check your favorite local winery or wine shop.

Wineries – feel free to post yours in comments.

Bonny Doon Vineyards Holiday Packs

Bonny Doon, American’s trailblazing Rhone producer, and one of our picks for Winery of the Month this year, has a fabulous assortment of holiday bundles.

There are many bundles to choose from ranging from their iconic Holiday Pack ~ Le Cigare Volant Vertical, (including one with Magnums! Feel free to send me a thank you pack!) , the Holiday Pack ~ Le Cigare Blanc Vertical, mixes of both. Is there a Syrah lover on your list – go for the Holiday Pack ~ Syrah Vertical.  Send your green friend the Holiday Pack ~ Biodynamic

Bundles start as little as Holiday Pack ~ Fireside

 

Tablas Creek

Another Winery awarded Winery of the Month and second to none in Rhone wines is Tablas Creek.  Right now they are offering a  limited holiday package includes a bottle each of two newest signature wines: the 2009 Esprit de Beaucastel and the 2010 Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc in a special decorative gift box.

In addition, the offer  includes shipping at no extra charge on the gift packs to any address in any of the 32 states they ship to.

Just $95 per pack, and just $76 per pack for VINsider Wine Club members, shipping included.

Esprit de Beaucastel is their flagship, premier wine, you can not go wrong with this is a gift. Click here and hurry before they take it down!

 

Topel Winery

Topel is offering a special ‘ Toast the Holidays 4-Bottle Wine Gift.’ Take home, or gift the “King of Reds” along with the “Queen of Whites.”

This bundle include  2009 Topel Chardonnay “Classique,”  a well balanced Montrachet style chardonnay.  Plus a wonderful vertical of Cabernet Sauvignon, Estate Reserve (vintages 2005, 2006 and 2007.) I have tasted all these wines, and am in love with the 2009 Chardonnay and the 2005 Cabernet.

Normally $143, until Dec 31st its just $99. Pick it up in the tasting room in Healdsburg, or order it online here.

 

Inman Family Wines: Pinot & Bubbles

I have raved about Kathleen’s Pinot for years. (As well as her Chardonnay, Pinot Gris)

Tomorrow I will announce (as I did 2 weeks ago on my KRSO radio Wine Wednesday sh0w, when she was my guest) that her new sparkling 2009 Brut Rose Nature “Endless Crush” is my wine of the week, and Inman Family Winery is my winery of the month.

Inman is offering four holiday packs, including a two pack of this incredible new sparkling. She doesn’t discount wine very often, jump on it.

 

Cheers, come back tomorrow for Part 2, as well as my full article on Inman Family Wines.
