GIFT IDEA : SUCH GORGEOUS WINES BOTTLES, WORTH TO BUY AND KEEP IT
A great bottle of wine is always a perfect go-to for a Secret Santa surprise, hostess gift, or anyone on your list. And not only are the five we’ve picked here delicious and easy to pair, they’re so pretty it would be a shame to hide them behind wrapping paper or gift bags! Instead, grab a piece of fabric ribbon, tie a bow on the neck, and prepare for gratitude.
Luc Belaire Rare Brut and Rare Rosé
These French sparkling wines are a favorite of rapper Rick Ross, but thankfully priced for non-rap-moguls to enjoy. The chic black bottles and metallic labels give just enough flash, but for real gift-giving swagger, spring for the magnum.
Speak “You’re Pretty” 2012 Malbec
This smooth, approachable Malbec is sure to win over your recipient—especially when she notices the charming compliment on the label.
Club W “Loves Me Not” Malvasia Bianca
While we’ve never seen anything but amazing labels on all the Club W selections, the vivid floral still life on their sweet, aromatic Malvasia Bianca wine is particularly stunning.
Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2004
Pricey, yes, but this beautiful bubbly honors the matriarch of the world’s most recognizable champagne house. Presented in a dignified, minimalist black bottle, the 2004 vintage is a special treat for any champagne lover.
Saved Magic Maker 2014 Rosé
You can and should drink rosé in the winter, especially a big, bright one like this collaboration between California winemaker Clay Brock and famed tattoo artist Scott Campbell (who also designed the gorgeous-enough-to-be-a-tattoo label art, of course).
