We know how difficult it can be to find the perfect gift for a wine lover’s wine rack. You have exhausted all the wine-related gifts that you can think of, and short of having to resort to cheap and tacky wine themed paraphernalia that you know they won’t appreciate, you are out of ideas.

Of course, you always have the option of gifting them a couple of bottles of wine for Christmas. It can be difficult to know which wine to choose, especially if you don’t know the intricacies of their tastes, but sometimes it can be nice to try a wine that you wouldn’t necessarily have chosen for yourself.

So whether you want to find the perfect wine as a gift this year, or you are searching for the perfect accompaniment to your Christmas dinner, we have picked out a selection of our favourites to stock your wine rack and help you out.

Red wine

Red wine is a traditional favourite at this time of the year. Perfect for relaxing with a glass after Christmas dinner, red wine doesn’t have to be rich and dominating.

Try a bottle of Leconfield Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia. With smoky undertones, this one is perfect for those cold winter evenings.

For fans of pinot noir, we recommend Berry Bros & Rudd Gevrey-Chambertin Domaine Rossignol-Trapet. An excellent gift, this one is a real treat.

White wine

Chateau Doisy-Daene sauvignon blanc is a young, dry, refreshing white. Don’t leave it in your wine rack for long as it’s better the younger it is. Instead, pair it with your Christmas dinner for the perfect accompaniment to roast chicken or turkey.

If you fancy a bit of sparkle this Christmas, Charles Heidsieck Blanc de Millenaires Champagne is a real treat. Choose an older vintage to fully appreciate the rich honey tones during your festive toast.

Wine racks

So now you have the perfect winter wines, you just need a wine rack to store them all in! A well-made, good-quality wine rack makes the perfect gift for a wine lover. With a variety of sizes and styles to choose from, Cranville has a wine rack to suit every taste.

Christmas gifts

For something a little different this Christmas, why not have a look at some of our globe drinks cabinets? Ideal for those who are also interested in travel, a globe drinks cabinet makes a great feature piece to add to your room.

We also have an extensive range of gifts to suit every budget. From wine glasses to corkscrews and bottle openers to champagne ice buckets, at Cranville Wine Racks, we are sure to have something for everyone.
