Check these folks off your list with must-have wine gifts

winepresent-1_03The Host: The ideal gift for the entertainer? High-quality, free-flowing wine that stays fresh for a month and is environmentally friendly. The home version of the20 wine-on-tap cask system turns any host’s kitchen counter into a veritable wine bar. Choose to fill your cask with any one of a number of high-end, small-production wines that normally retail for $25 to $50 a bottle. Buy it here.

The Chocolate Lover: She loves chocolate-covered strawberries. Why not wine bottles? Bliss in a Bottle customizes the classic pairing by dipping your favorite wine bottle in decadent milk, white or dark chocolate. They leave the label exposed so you know it’s your favorite syrah that’s cloaked in heavenly bliss. Buy it here.

The Home Chef:
He grills as well as bakes. Treat him to wine ingredients that will enhance his culinary creations. He’ll make amazing brownies with Marche Noir Foods’ fragrant wine flour, made from dried cabernet sauvignon pomace (leftover skins and seeds after pressing). Throw in a shaker of wine-infused salt from La Tienda, perfect for taking that filet to soaring heights. Buy the flour here. Buy the salt here.

The Outdoorsy Type: The hikers and campers in your life love the original S’well bottle because its double-walled stainless steel insulation keeps drinks hot for 12 hours and cold for 24. Guess what? The sleek bottle now comes in a 750-ml size, which means the next time they’re roughing it, they’ll be doing it with the crispest sauvignon blanc in hand. Buy it here.
