Merry Good Gear
Top Wine Gifts of 2009

With the holidays already upon us, many of us are wondering: what in the world will I buy for the wine lover on my list this year? Please, allow us to suggest: At the conclusion of a year that can only be described as tough, let loose with gifts that embrace the adventurous, offbeat side of wine.


Winter Wonderland

You can tell by the sheer amount of cars on the road – and the difficulty that you'll no doubt encounter when trying to book a room – that summer is the most popular of seasons in Wine Country. It has the reputation for good reason. But for my money, the holiday season is the best time to visit. . . The best thing about Wine Country during the winter holiday season is that the place is just so festive.


Foodie's Holiday Wish List

it's actually very simple to get me something I will love - as long as it relates to food or wine (or is in fact food or wine), doesn't clutter up my cabinets and counters, and doesn't dominate my kitchen aesthetic, I'm a happy camper. In this vein, I offer you some suggestions for the picky foodie in your family, virtually guaranteed to please those who love to cook and eat. READ MORE >>
