Cheap Fun Wines Holiday Gift Guide 2007
With vacations, family dinners, parties and endless gift giving on the horizon it's time to look at all the possibilities wine creates on the holidays. No other time of the year lends itself so completely to wine. As the toasts fly, beer and Jägermeister just don't cut it. How can you drink Nanna's health with a shot? And I think it's only in my family that a bottle of Jameson's is brought to dinner parties. Every time you show up at someone's house this holiday season, you should have a bottle of wine in a gift bag, or adorned with a bow.
The CFW crew has spent the last year looking for great wines and great wine accessories. This guide puts them all together to streamline your shopping experience. All of this stuff has been tested by, or on, the interns and has passed with flying colors. Remember folks, this is just the first installment, more great wine gift ideas will be added as we get closer to happy time. So folks, let's get buying and let's get drinking with a little homage to Billy Joel!
