What is National Give a Wine Club Day? It's the day we celebrate giving wine clubs, and the ease of gifting one of the best Christmas gifts you can give!
This year, National Give a Wine Club Day falls on Friday, December 14, 2018.
Why give a wine club? If you have a wine-lover on your Christmas shopping list, you've probably thought of giving them some wine. But what if you don't know the difference between Merlot and Malbec? Wine Clubs are a great gift as you choose the number of bottles, number of shipments and frequency of shipments (and sometimes choose a general theme, like white wines, red wines, champagne, etc) and the wine club takes care of the rest!
Your gift recipient will love the newsletters which accompany their wine club shipment, which include tasting notes, the history of the winery where the wine came from, and often a pairing recipe. Some clubs even include gift wrapping and other wine accessories, such as totes or a bottle opener.
Is it too late to send a wine club? No!!! Printable gift announcements are available from most clubs so minutes before leaving for a holiday party you can order the wine club, print out the announcement and present that to your gift recipient. You can even order a wine club from your phone as you're driving to the family Christmas gathering, with an e-mail gift announcement sent directly to the recipient's inbox.
One caveat: not all wine clubs can legally ship to every state, so look up the state where you want to send the club as your first step to choosing a wine club gift. Or if you don't have much time, consider our recommendations for wine club gifts for last minute shoppers.
Miss National Give a Wine Club Day? Don't worry – like we said, you can always give a wine club, even at the last minute. And if you're looking for a reason to celebrate wine and wine clubs, we have an extensive list of wine holidays. Cheers!
