Holiday Gift Giving Made Easy This Year What if you could purchase a quality gift that your friends, family or co-workers would truly appreciate? ‘Tis the season for racking your brain trying to come up with the perfect gifts for all your favorite people. We know the feeling. Sometimes you just KNOW and it makes gift-giving easy, but often you’re stuck in a bind wondering what you could buy that will please that special someone and not make you feel like you are tossing good money at a mediocre gift. We’ve all been there. What if you could purchase a quality gift that your friends, family or co-workers would truly appreciate? We’ve come up with some ideas to help you get out of your current predicament. For Her Our winery has plenty to choose from - there is something for every lady out there. Is she a white wine fan? You can’t go wrong with a classic Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio. Maybe she loves a full body Merlot? Come in and ask for a recommendation. We all have that friend that prefers a fruity, super sweet wine. Our Funseekers line was designed just for them. Perhaps our Moscato, or maybe a Pineapple Pear, or the widely popular White Cranberry? This time of year, guests really enjoy the Red Cranberry that’s only available during the fall and winter seasons. Not sure what wine she will love? Grab her one of our wonderful wine gifts, like a set of wine charms or a wine purse! Yes, you read that right, we have four styles of chic wine purses that hold a bottle of wine and come with their own wine opener. They double as a great lunch tote too! For Him Any of our wine choices would be just as great for that lucky man in your life, depending on his interests. Looking for something that’s bold and spicy with a blast of fruit? Our award-winning Diablo is sinfully smooth. How about the creamy, elegant Fume Blanc with its blend of grassy notes, green bell peppers, succulent floral essences and a touch of French oak? If he is not a wine fan, our Encore line of hard ciders offers a refreshing twist on the classic hard apple cider. This handcrafted, small-batch cider uses apples from the Pacific Northwest to deliver a perfect fruit filled semi-sweet balance. There are multiples flavors to choose from - pick up a few and let him choose his new favorite hard cider! For Them Got a holiday party on the horizon with no clue what to bring? Visiting family for the season and don’t want to arrive empty-handed? Give our wine a good home! Any of our award-winning wines are a great choice or grab one of our popular, and also award-winning, dessert wines (Doux Creme Caramel or Vanilla Fig Port provide a perfect compliment to the season). Give a Client or Co-Worker Gift That Won’t Soon Be Forgotten! Not sure what to get the folks in those cubicles next to you at work? Perhaps you are seeking the perfect client gift - one that will truly be appreciated for a change? The InVINtions, a Creative Winery Adopt-a-Batch program is just the thing. Simply “adopt” a batch of our wine from one of 12 countries. We already have the wine in production and ready to purchase. You’ll receive 28 bottles of custom labeled wine in time for the holidays. Personalized wine is a unique and creative one-of-a-kind gift that people actually want to receive. For The Person With Everything You know the one, they seem to have everything already? Or the guy that doesn’t seem to be really ‘into’ anything? How about the person that just goes out and buys everything they want? These friends and family members are tough to shop for this time of year. Our best recommendation for this is to stop seeking the perfect gift to wrap and place under the tree and start looking for an experience they can enjoy instead. How about a personal Wine-Making experience for 2 or 4 people? Working closely with our winemakers, the gift recipient will learn the science of making wine and be able to brag to their peers that they made their own custom wine to enjoy! Not enough? Our Charter Wine Club membership could really knock it out of the park this year! Now that’s a gift that will have them talking all year long! It's Time to Adopt a Batch of Wine We Can’t Thank You Enough!
