9 Best White And Red Wines To Gift in 2020

Forbes Logoby Forbes Personal Shopper

A bottle of wine is the perfect gift for almost any occasion. It’s a great last-minute purchase, to be sure, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t think about the wine you buy. There are over 10,000 varieties of wine grapes in the world — and when you step into your local wine shop you might feel like there are 10,000 different bottles of wine in front of you. One good way to narrow down your choice is by thinking about the occasion you’re buying for — or by thinking about the preferences of the recipient of the gift.

To thank your dinner host
Most dinner guests bring their own bottle of wine, but they may all go unopened, as the host is likely to have planned their wine to go with the food they’re serving. Help your wine stand out from the crowd by attaching a note that says, “For your cellar” or “I hope you enjoy this later.” However, if you opt for a flexible wine that works with lots of different dishes (i.e. a white that’s not overpoweringly dry, or a red that’s not too weighty), there is a chance your wine will be the one that’s enjoyed by everyone at the table.
