Wine Gift Guide for Wine Connoisseurs

Don't you hate shopping for that person who has everything? Gift buying shouldn't be so difficult. But, we have found that one type of gift is always well received...wine accessories!

Wine accessories make great gifts because they are a staple in most homes. Unless you HATE wine, a new corkscrew or fun wine glass always makes people smile. Plus, you can never have too many wine glasses, wine charms, or corkscrews. 

What about a wine connoisseur? You know...the guy or gal who appreciates their wine, has all the tools for wine loving. Well, as the ultimate wine gift shop, A Bit of Wine offers a wide selection of wine accessories and gifts that will please every wine connoisseur. 

Customers come to us looking for the perfect gift for their wine loving friends. So, to help those looking for a great wine gift for the wine connoisseur in your life, here are our favorite and most popular gifts for connoisseurs.

For the Wine Lover's Kitchen

1. Mendocino Trellis Wine Rack - Wine storage is important to a wine connoisseur. With this trellis style wine rack, a connoisseur's kitchen will be complete with a taste of the vineyard. This Mendocino holds 8 bottles of wine in an easy access and stylish way that will look great in any kitchen.

2. Metal Waiter Cork Holder - This guy is one of our new additions at A Bit of Wine. Every wine connoisseur has wine corks. Instead of throwing them away, the cork is a great way to remember your favorite events. Take the cork off the corkscrew and toss it in this adorable wine cork holder. Set him on any kitchen counter for a bit of wine character to a wine connoisseur's kitchen.

For the Wine Bar

3. Ravenscroft Crystal Wine Glasses - The creme de la creme of crystal wine ware, no wine connoisseur's collection is complete without a set of 4 wine glasses from Ravenscroft Crystal. This lead free crystal eliminates the impurities that are in most glassware. These impurities can affect the flavor profiles of fine wine. And there is no such thing as 'too many wine glasses'. These high quality luxury Ravenscroft Crystal wine glasses are a classic and elegant gift for every wine connoisseur.

4. Ravenscroft Crystal Vintner's Choice Wine Decanter - Like with the Ravenscroft Crystal wine glasses, a red wine decanter is a must-have wine accessory at a connoisseur's wine bar. We recommend the Ravenscroft Crystal Vintner's Choice decanter. With it's narrow neck and round bowl, this is a classic decanter with ball stopper. 

With hundreds of shapes, styles, and sizes buying decanter can be overwhelming. Shop our decanters for more styles and colors.

For a Wine and Cheese Party

5.  Picnic Time Concavo Cutting Board - Do you know a wine connoisseur who loves entertaining friends and family? A cheese cutting board makes a great gift. This two-tone sleek design cutting board is a conversation starter. Complete with cheese tools and ceramic cheese markers, this cutting board serves a dual purpose for the next wine and cheese party. Prep your cheeses before the party, then use it as a beautiful serving tray while guests enjoy the party. 

6. Spiral Ball Wine Charms - For those wine party animals these spiral stem wine charms keep everyone's wine glass marked. Of course, you need as many different wine charms as you have guests, so shop for a fun variety of wine charms in several themes.

For Fun Loving Wine Drinkers

7. Sorrento Wine Tote - A wine tote like this Sorrento is an incredible wine gift for a wine connoisseur who loves to take their wine to the great outdoors. Holding 4 plates, 4 acrylic wine glasses, and utensil settings for 4, this wine tote is easy to carry and comes with corkscrew, cutting board, and salt/pepper shakers. Add a matching table cloth and napkins, the Sorrento is perfect for a wine connoisseur's wine picnic anywhere they want to go.

8. High Stakes Picnic Table - Featured as one of our great summer wine gifts, this High Stakes Picnic Table has been a huge hit with our wine connoisseurs. So, we had to put it on our wine gift guide. Relaxing by the pool or camping in the mountains, this picnic table holds 2 wine glasses and some small snacks. Just stick it in the ground and enjoy.

For the Love of Wine

9. World Atlas of Wine - Over 400 pages of everything wine. As one of the most popular wine reference books on the market, this Atlas will teach any level wine connoisseur what they need to know about wineries and wine regions around the world.

10. Metrokane V.I.P Rabbit Corkscrew - You can never have too many corkscrews. But, a wine connoisseur's bar is not complete without a Rabbit corkscrew from Metrokane. This V.I.P. edition is polished and comes with a black leather carrying case. This is sure to knock their socks off and please every wine connoisseur on the planet.

  1. These gift ideas are a perfect blend of quirky, witty and classy. You have gift designs ranging from the quirky and funny cork holder all the way to the very classy wine holder. These gifts will definitely "wow" any wine connoisseur. Although I'm not entirely sold on that tote for wine picnics as knives are dangerous even if they're inside the bag, especially if you accidentally leaned on the bag! Nevertheless, great gift ideas!
