When your friend is a wine enthusiast, your first instinct is probably to buy a nice bottle of wine as a gift. Great idea – if you are a wine expert or know exactly what kind of wine your friend likes. Wine experts know that it’s not just about the wine label, they know exactly of which side of the vineyard the grapes were picked for which wine, and which year was especially good. You get their favorite wine, but in a wrong year, and you just show that you don’t really know about wine. Instead of trying the waters on buying actual wine, try these gift ideas for the wine lover in your life.
