When offering a bottle of a wine as a gift, identify and distinguish your bottle from all the others by presenting your wine with a nicely paired food gift. Here are some ideas:
- Port with chocolate truffles
- Sweet Riesling and spicy mixed nuts
- Sauvignon Blanc with a jar of tapenade
- Zinfandel with salami
- Syrah with a pack of Chili mix
- Pinot Noir with a smoked salmon
- Fried chicken wing with a sparkling wine
Package your food in a decorative gift box or bag and tie it to the bottle! Cheers!
