You know who you are. You love it red. You love it white. And, when no one is looking, you enjoy a glass of the pink stuff. That’s right, you’re today’s modern wine lover. If you have purple-stained teeth at least twice a week then you’re going to want to get the best gifts for both yourself and your best wine-drinking friends and family this year. If you or someone you love is a wine lover, here are a few of our favorite gift ideas that are lighting up our wine cellars this year.

Wine And Food!

You can’t go wrong by getting the wine-lover in your life something simple like, let’s say, wine! Stop by Divine Wine, Cork & Fork in northwest Meridian today and pick up a few gift cards for the wine lovers on your list. Also, you should stop and enjoy a glass yourself. They offer hors d’oeuvres from fresh pan seared scallops and steak to mouth-watering desserts like creme brulee and molten fudge cake. Enjoy a song or two on their outdoor patio that features a real grand piano! You’ll be glad you did.


Great Wine By The Case

While you’re out shopping for gift cards, stop by Boise’s hit new place to pick up an amazing bottle of wine: The Gulch Wine Room off of Chinden near the fairgrounds. The Gulch is the perfect place to pick up a few of the best quality wines in the country for under $50 and sometimes closer to $20. The wine is made in Ketchum, Idaho and is from a family owned winery. The Gulch offers outstanding wines at a price point that will make you smile. As all wine drinkers know, when it comes to wine vs beer, the buzz is always better with wine. They offer amazing deals on wines by the case as well. So, buy a case and keep a few bottles for yourself while you’re gifting them to friends.


Handy Hand Tools For The Elite Wine Drinker

Ever heard of Swiss Army knives? You may have had one as a Boy or Girl scout or you may even have one in your pocket right now. What you may not know is that they offer the world’s most sophisticated wine utility knife. The knife is called, (appropriately enough) the Wine Master and it commands a solid $150.00 price tag. But, rest assured, it is worth every penny and then some. The Wine Master has 6 main tools including, for the first time ever in a pocket knife configuration, a functional two step tool for uncorking even the toughest bottles. In addition to the corkscrew it has a bottle opener, a wavy-edged blade that is custom designed to cut wine bottle foil which also locks into place for safety, and a key ring. The knife comes with it’s own custom leather pouch. The handle is made from natural stained walnut wood.

So, if you have a wine lover in your life, treat them to the very best. With a new gift card for some local craft wines and a new Wine Master Swiss Army knife, they will fall in love with wine all over again and be toasting your name for years to come. Cheers!
