Dos and don’ts when gifting wine?

Sam Cordon14 Posted

I’m planning to give a bottle of wine to a really good friend of mine, and I want to make sure I get them something they’ll really like.

If chosen well, wine makes an excellent gift. But how do you make sure you’re getting your recipient the perfect bottle? 

First, consider their preference. It might be tempting to gift them your personal favorites, but if that wine simply isn’t their preference, your recipient might not really enjoy it. 

Second, do some research. A quick trip to the wine section at your grocery store might present you with a variety of options (most of which are the big and widely available brands), but if you’re going to invest in a good bottle of wine, you might as well go the extra mile and find them something unique. 

Third, consider alternatives. Aside from wine, there are premium spirits out there that also make perfect gifts, especially if you want your friend to have something they can enjoy with a company at a party or any social event. 

Fourth, don’t forget to ask the experts. Liquid Indulgence is a wine merchant in York that can help you decide on what to give. They have a thoughtfully curated selection of high-quality wines and premium spirits from all around the world for you to choose from.
