Are you in the race up to Christmas? You just don’t know what to put under the tree of your special friend, one who is truly passionate about wine? Here are 5 perfect presents for wine lovers.
1. Wine Journal Moleskine (13,86 € su Amazon)
The most famous brand of notebooks a few years ago, launched, an exclusive collection dedicated to many different passions: books, cooking, travel and of course wine. The Wine Journal is divided into 6 sections: Italian Sparkling wine – Spumante, White, Rose and Red wines as well as Fortified/Sweet wines and Liquors. The book is also enriched with white pages for notes and information and has stickers and labels. The notebook allows you to catalog and evaluate each wine tasted, putting together a true archive of the wine tasting experiences to always keep with you. (size 13×21 cm)
2. Wine Guide book (from 18 €)
If you missed our post on wine books then this is the time to listen up. It is a very interesting read not only for professionals in the wine industry but also for wine lovers too. From the yearly Espresso Guide of Luca Maroni to the Slow Wine, Gambero Rosso Italian Wines, Vinetia and the Veneto Wine Guides where you can find Marcello Marchesini Winery.
3. Mystervino Games (79 €)
A game? Why not a wine tasting experience, it can also be a fun and playful experience. Mystervino is a kind of “blindfolded panel” perfect game to play with your friends after a festive lunch. 5 mysterious 375 ml bottles originating for some of the most famous Italian wineries (2015 harvest), 30 cards with technical information, 6 place mats to put your glass on, 1 brochure with all the information on the labels and producers and a mini-guide to wine tasting. An experience and sensorial valuation as a true sommelier.
4. Coravin (199 € the new Model One)
Coravin is a real ‘must have’ for those who are knowledgeable about wine. It is a specific pouring system that allows you to pour the wine easily without having to actually open the bottle. Ideal for those special bottles, the ones that you want to let your friends and family taste just a glass of. The thin canaliculate needle of which this strange contraption is composed, passes through the cork and the cap of the bottle, leaving them both intact. The system then blows an argon inert gas into the bottle in order to avoid the wine from oxidising and also preserving the wines aromas for about a year. The least inexpensive version can be found on the official website for 199 euro.
5. Aromaster Wine Aroma kit (310 €)
This is a truly professional kit for real wine experts. The Wine Experts Aromaster kit will help your friends recognise wine aromas and scents just like real sommeliers. 88 different fruity, floral, mineral, malolactic fermentation, maturation in oak barrels, aged red or white wine aromas including the defects such as the smell of horse sweat or nail polish remover (acetone) in order to gradually develop their tasting skills. Apart from being a learning instrument both complete and recognised by world wide experts, the aroma kit is also a great game that can easily replace the classic Christmas bingo game. In combination with one of these gifts you can add a good bottle of white, rose or red wine or a wine tasting experience in our winery. Live (and let live) to those who love a unique and truly unforgettable experience: book your wine tasting experience in our Winery in Lazise.
