You have several choices. The grocery store, party store, liqueur store, gourmet market, wine shop the list goes on. You probably have your favorite place to purchase wine. I do have mine and it does not all come from the same place believe it or not. I do shop around for a good bottle and the best price.
You can join wine clubs, purchase online and get great wines from around the world now at your fingertips.
For example serenatawines.com in house Sommelier will hand pick the wines for you. In this case they will pick it and ship it in a beautiful wooden box. They have every type of wine available, Chardonnay, Bordeaux, Chablis, Burgundy, Champagne, Chianti, full bodied, lighter bodied as well as Organic. You can get great Italian, French, Australian and many more from all over the world.
Look for Holiday specials, gift ideas for both the red and white wine lover. In most cases the company will give you tasting notes, a brief history and the type of grape the wine is made from. You can actually learn a lot from poking around the websites. The best part is you can usually get a good price and have the opportunity to try something new.
This is a great idea for that hard to buy for person. Your Boss, Secretary, Father In Law the list goes on. If they like wine they will love this gift.
Shop around, do your wine homework and most of all have some fun. Happy Holidays!!
