Happy Holidays from GrapesandHopsATL!
If you have wine connoisseurs on your holiday gift list, give them elegant wine-inspired gifts. You don't have to spend a lot of money to put together a thoughtful gift basket. If you are on a limited budget, present a friend, family member or coworker with a bottle of wine in a decorative bag. Complement wine bottles with gourmet treats or essential accessories.
Experience wine at the perfect temperature every time. Keeping your wines at just the right drinking temperatures—it’s a great dilemma. Too cold and it could mask the vintner’s uniquely crafted complexities. Too warm and the flavors may take a back seat to the alcohol. The answer to this perplexity? www.corkcicle.com
