We love to gift wine year round, so it’s not unusual for us to swing by the wine shop on our way to holiday parties for a quick present. As you make your holiday rounds, here are a few things to keep in mind when selecting a bottle for a last minute gift:

– Red, red, wine: Look for reds with tannins and high acidity – they make great host and hostess gifts as they pair well with rich holiday foods.

– When in doubt, sparkle it out: ‘Tis the season for sparkling wines and Champagne, making them perfect for a grab-and-go gift.

– Stand out: Grab a fortified wine! Port is a distinct wine that is best enjoyed late-night with a chocolaty dessert.

Happy holidays from The Barn Group!
