A buyer's guide to personalised wine gifts

According to Galileo Galilei, "Wine is light, held together by water." Wine has surely been valued by civilisations since wine was made since 6000 to 4000 BC. Wine began to be enjoyed by the general population in ancient Egypt and Greece. Wine has continued to be enjoyed throughout the ages, inspiring songs and poems. The question remains: What do you give as a personalised gift to a wine lover?

A personalised case

One gift that any wine lover would like would be a case of wine that the person enjoys - or a case made of bottles of most of the wines which are most favoured by that person. This case can contain bottles of the favourite reds, whites, sherry or any variety that you can think of. If the wine lover has a favourite vineyard that he or she likes to patronise, a case from that vineyard would make the gift all the more special.

Books on wine

Books on wine would also be appreciated by the wine aficionado.There are Hugh Johnson's latest edition of Pocket Book of Wine, or his World Atlas of Wine, The Wines of Chablis and the Grand Auxerrois by Rosemary George, The Complete Bordeaux by Stephen Brook and The Questions of Taste which is edited by Barry Smith. If that person likes to make his or her own wine, then books like The Way to Make Wine: How to Craft Superb Table Wines at Home by Sheridan F. Warrick, The Joy of Home WineMaking by Terry A Garey.

Custom wine

One of the best personalised wine gifts for the wine lover is custom wine. If you make wine, you can make your own wine for your friend as a gift. You can design labels for the bottles, perhaps incorporating the friend's name in the name of the wine. The wine does not have to be grape wine, but it can be mead or dandelion wine, red clover wine, or some other wine that you have made yourself. The gift of home-made wine will be a gift that will be appreciated by any
wine lover, especially if the wine is named for that person. If you can manage it, a collection of wine for that person will help even more.
