Looking for that holiday gift that is both personal and universal, sophisticated and fun? Smart holiday shoppers are turning to Gold Medal Wine club for wine and wine-related accessories to round out their seasonal shopping this year.
Wine is moving beyond just a bottle brought to a holiday soiree as a thoughtful gift for the host or hostess. It's now possible to find wine related gifts for friends, family members, fellow workers, clients - virtually every adult on your holiday gift list.
And there are so many great ideas to choose from. Take for instance a top-of-the line Rabbit corkscrew that will make opening wine bottles a simple and speedy experience for those hard-to-open bottles. Or how about a Riedel wine glass set? Do you know someone who can never put her hands on a matched set of wine glasses when she needs it? Consider giving a set of four, or even eight, glasses to make entertaining a style statement. And, mix it up with a set of glasses shaped for each type of wine.
If the wine lover on your list is really after those collectable, award-winning bottles - give a wine club membership. That way one can have something to look forward to not just this holiday season, but throughout the year.
Wine makes a great gift because it's not something that will be put away and forgotten after the season is over. It will be savored and enjoyed by both the wine novice and wine aficionado from the time the bottle is opened until the last drop is gone. And membership comes with rewards.
Take for example the benefits offered by Gold Medal Wine Club (http://www.GoldMedalWine.com), which specializes in delivering hard-to-find wines from small, family-owned California wineries to people all across the country. Buy a one-month Gold Series Membership for $34 (one to 12 month gifts are available), and your giftee will get two highly-rated bottles of wine (one red, one white) neatly gift-wrapped in tissue and perfectly tied bows around each bottleneck. They'll also receive a fun and informative color publication called "The Wine Press" that features information about the wines, the fascinating backgrounds of the winery owners, a behind-the-scenes tour of the vineyards and great food pairing ideas from the winemakers themselves.
If the wine enthusiast on your list has always dreamed of expanding his horizons with a trip overseas but just couldn't find the time or resources to do it, a great surprise would be a Gold Medal Wine Club International Series membership. Imagine the delight when a box arrives containing three bottles of rare and wonderful international wines packaged with a unique collection of delicious gourmet food items direct from the featured country. The full color "Taste the Adventure" publication includes information on the wines, winery and country. Each shipment is around $100 and annual gifts (four deliveries per year) receive a 10 percent discount.
All of the wines offered by Gold Medal Wine Club are hard-to-find, small production wines from boutique family wineries. The wines have won multiple medals and awards from major wine competitions and have high ratings from the major wine publications. Some wines are even pre-releases and exclusives that are only offered at the winery itself and through the Club.
