Wine is constant proof that God Loves us and loves to see us happy. – Benjamin Franklin
Christmas? New Year? Wedding Anniversary? Birthday of your best buddy? No matter, what the
occasion is, a bottle of wine makes the perfect gift. It is also the best emergency gift, especially if you are
a last-minute shopper. But, purchasing the perfect bottle out of so many best wine brands in India is not
as easy as it sounds.
Whether you are a casual wine drinker or a seasoned wine expert, buying wine as a gift is an
intimidating task. Why? Because, “Each person’s taste is different, and one man’s red might well be
another woman’ssparkling.” says Ruma Singh.
‘When it comes to enjoying wine, it’s all about the experience.’ The same goes true for purchasing wine.
So, if you are looking for the perfect bottle, here are some tips.
Consider the flavors
Though the easiest way to gift someone is to pick up their favorite wine, we don’t always fully know the
taste of close people.
Wines share some basic characteristics and typically contain varying degrees of ripe fruit aromas. But
even within a varietal, the taste of wine differs a lot due to the characteristics derived from the wine
making process. To whom you are planning to gift the wine greatly decides the style of wine you will
choose. As a general rule, choose fruity wine with a rich bouquet for young, active people. For mature
persons, choose wine with more defined and classy taste.
Consider the food being served
For a great wine experience, it is important to pair the wine with the right food. Wine and food
complement each other and uplift each other’s taste. However, not all wine goes well with any food. For
example, a fish dish goes best with light wine while spicy dishes pair well with off-dry wines. Wherever
you go, choose wine that fits the place and occasion.
It is a bottle of wine, and it deserves your time before you purchase it. Doing a little homework, even
you are in a hurry will not harm. Commit to spending at least 15-30 minutes; looking at labels, going
through the prices, asking questions, deciding the wine as per the food before you land on an option.
Don’t just grab and rush.
Once you have decided the right bottle, do not forget to present it in a meaningful way, like wrapping it
in an elegant paper. It shows your love and dedication.
