Choosing the right wine for a gift
If you are looking for a gift for your relative, your boss, your friend, or your new neighbour and you are not a great wine expert, here are some tips to help you make the right decision.
Firstly, it is important to consider these three factors: occasion, your budget, and the lifestyle of the person you are buying the gift for.
How much are you willing to spend? Five, ten, twenty, or even over thirty euros? It is best to buy the most expensive bottles to people who know more about wines and will not hesitate to open an expensive vintage. Some people tend to leave the more expensive wines in the cupboard, waiting for the special occasion, and end up with a less than satisfying experience once they finally drink it and the wine is no longer in its best condition. A bottle of wine that we can enjoy with our family, our partner, or our friends does not need to be expensive. In fact, more than the price tag it is important to choose the wine according to the occasion and the lifestyle of the person we are gifting it to.
Be it spring, summer, fall, or winter, every season calls for a different wine. In spring, we tend to prefer lighter and more fresh white wines, such as Quercus white wines, which go well with spring dishes. Summer is the perfect time for aperitifs, less alcoholic wines, rosé wines, or sweet sparkling moscato, which are perfect alongside summer fruits and desserts. In fall, when the temperatures drop and we start craving more hearty meals, we tend to reach for more structured wines, nurtured in wooden barrels (Bagueri superior). Winter, on the other hand, is the time of holidays and gatherings, when we enjoy mulled wine and sparkling wines.
Younger people, who are more likely to socialise outdoors, do not enjoy wine at home as frequently and even if they do, they opt for sparkling wines or aperitifs. Lovers of nature, camping, and sailing will be happy to receive a wine in a larger and easier to carry packaging (Quercus selection 3 l). Older generations see wine as part of the meal and prefer simple wines intended for immediate use, such as the high-quality bottled wines of Klet Brda. Those who love glamour, swear by sparkling wines, produced according to the classic method (Bagueri brut, rose, or zero), or still wines from the ultra premium line, produced in our exclusive wine cellar de Bagueri (A plus or de Baguer). Of course, you should always consider the personal preferences of the person you are buying for. Do they prefer white or red wines, dry or sweeter wines, are they a fan of bubbles?
By gifting wine, we give the person the story of the harmony between humans, nature, and vines. This will not only be appreciated by wine lovers, but also by those who are just starting to discover the enchanting world of wines.
Fill life with joy that a carefully selected bottle of wine can bring in the person receiving it. To top it off, add a personal touch with a handwritten message or a card.
In our online shop, you will find a wide selection of wines you can gift. Furthermore, we have prepared several gift sets which will make you present even more special.
