There’s no wonder why it’s so common for many of us to add a few pounds during the holiday season – there’s just so many delicious goodies all around us! Isn’t it wonderful to attend a cocktail party or visit a friend or family member and sample their homemade holiday desserts, while enjoying a relaxing glass of wine? A great way to gift a hostess or gift a holiday present is with one of our robust Wine Gift Baskets For Christmas, packed with renowned wine varieties and gourmet goodies. Bring along a complementary holiday dessert with you to gift, or match up the wines in your Wine Gift Baskets For Christmas with the dessert the hostess is most well known for!
Does your hostess with the “mostess” make a “mean” custard or flan, or do you plan on bringing one to the gathering? If so, bring along a bottle of Riesling or a sweet sparkling wine, like our Gift of Champagne gift basket.
Apple Pie w/ Cinnamon Sprinklings
Yum, apple pie is a treat all year-long, especially with cinnamon sprinkled on top. Pair a fruit pie like apple with a white wine like a Sauterne, or pink champagne. The chardonnay in our California Wine Duet basket – one of our customer favorite Wine Gift Baskets For Christmas, will be delicious with a hearty slice of apple pie.
Biting into a scrumptious piece of chocolate – or chocolate fudge, at that, is a delight to the senses, particularly when it’s cold and snowy outside. Pair chocolate with a dark red wine, like pinot noir in our wine gift baskets for Christmas, including our California Wine Tasting Gift Basket.
Wine, Sans Dessert
Wine can be a dessert in itself, especially if it’s a sweet sparkling wine – such as a moscato. Make wine the centerpiece of your gathering or post-dinner enjoyment by choosing a light, sweet fine that will leave you and your guests feeling just as satisfied as having had that piece of chocolate cake!
