Gift Ideas

Posted on November 15, 2019

We're sure that you have a person in your life - be it a coworker, family member, friend or partner - that absolutely loves wine (If you don't have a person like this, then maybe it's you!). They can't stop talking about what vineyards to visit, new wines to try, and have at least one picture of something wine-related on their wall. When it comes time to get them a gift, what do you choose? It doesn't matter if it's their birthday, baby shower, anniversary, or just a random time to show your appreciation; scientific research provides compelling data to support the notion that giving one's time, talents and gifts can increase overall happiness and longevity. Don't just give because you feel compelled to; give because it helps everyone feel more fulfilled in the long run. So what gift do you get for your wino friend? Read on.

Wine Glasses

This is a little on the generic side, but your wine lover is going to have to have something to drink out of! A personalized wine glass can be the perfect addition to their cupboard full of unpersonalized, run-of-the-mill glasses. If your friend loves wine a bit TOO much, try gifting them an unbreakable set of silicone wine glasses. These light-weight and sturdy wine glasses are sure to survive a stumble or drop. If they still end up spilling their wine, perhaps pair your gift of unbreakable wine glasses with a red wine stain remover, courtesy of uncommongoods.com. All of our guided cave tours and wine tastings come with a complimentary wine glass with our Yonah Mountain Vineyards bear etched on the surface of the glass.

Yonah Mountain Vineyards Cave Tour and Wine Tasting

If you are really looking to blow everyone else's gift out of the water, consider booking a trip with your beloved wine enthusiast to Yonah Mountain Vineyards. Featuring the only known wine cave in Georgia, our staff can take you on a 90-minute walking tour of our vineyard and wine cave. Complete with a tastings of our different wines and an optional Yonah Mountain Vineyard wine glass, this experience will delight any wine lover.

Every second Sunday of the month (February through October), our owner Bob Miller curates a private wine tasting experience in our winery and wine caves. Complimented with gourmet cheese and charcuterie, you will get to taste first-hand how our wines compare to some of the finest wines from around the world.

Food & Wine Guide to Perfect Pairings

This is the go-to guide and a must-have cookbook for wine lovers and chefs alike. Written by the editors of Food & Wine, this is an easy to read guide that contains over 15 dishes for each varietal. Lovers of Champagne and Chardonnay to Sauvignon Blanc (and everything in between) rejoice! Find it on Amazon or your local bookstore. What do I pair with *this type of varietal*? Never ask that question again and hit the kitchen proactively.

Coravin Wine Preservation System

This is an expensive, albeit incredibly innovative gift for the wine enthusiast. Ever thought it was impossible to pour a glass of wine without uncorking the bottle? Think again. This device uses a small needle to puncture through the cork to reach the wine inside. This is the first tool in the world that completely protects the bottle from the process of oxidation, so you can enjoy samples of the same wine for weeks, months, or even longer.

Buy Wine

Last on the list, but certainly not least, is the beverage that makes the magic happen. Consider purchasing a bottle of wine that your friend has never tried before! We have everything from Chardonnay to red blends, to Sauvignon Blanc and Port. Whatever taste you or your friends have, we are more than happy to accommodate you.
