11 Gifts for Wine Lovers

1. Aervana Wine Aerator

Any wine connoisseur can appreciate a perfectly aerated pour and we've got just the gift, the Aervana wine aerator. Turning a bottle into a spout, your friend or family member can aerate by the single glass or the whole bottle with the simple push of a button. Not only will they be thrilled to be gifted the Aervana, but something tells me you may have an aerated glass of wine in your future. This is great for a classy home bar or drink station.

2. Vinebox Subscription


Sure, you could buy the wine aficionado in your life a subscription to a wine club, but why send them a full bottle of something mysterious when they might not like it at all?

This is where Vinebox comes in. It's not just about getting wine in the mail, it's all about tasting. Through Vinebox, you can deliver a customized wine flight right to the giftee's doorstep. Vinebox will first send an e-mail to the recipient so they can personalize the gift set to their own liking, choosing their favorite wines. Then they'll receive nine wines of their own choosing, to do a from-home wine tasting with friends and cheeseboards, or enjoy their wine on the couch with a movie. Whether they love red wine, bubbly or only like white wine, they won't be disappointed.

3. Zalto Denk'Art Universal Glass

Of course, every wine lover is going to need a wine glass. But not just any wine glass will do. They need one that will release the aroma and let them detect even the most delicate of flavors. They need the sommelier approved Zalto Denk'Art Universal Glass.

This glassware is considered to be top of the line when it comes to a universal wine glass. It is elegant- an exceptionally thin design was influenced by the tilt of the earth, turning it into a work of art. Although it's on the pricey side, it delivers the ultimate tasting experience any serious wine drinker will be crazy about unraveling this holiday season.
