We know wine gifting can be overwhelming at the best of times, never mind over the holidays. Want a perfect, sommelier approved hostess gift that won’t break the bank? Looking to have your present stand out on the boss’ holiday gift table? Need some quality wine of your own to not just survive the holiday bustle but, dare we say, enjoy it?
kwäf is here and we’re taking the guesswork out of wine selection to help you breathe a little easier (and drink a little classier) this holiday season. We’ve also peppered in a few things that are on our own wine wish lists here at kwäf, so pour yourself a glass of your favourite vintage and cozy up to our 2015 holiday gift guide.
kwäf Holiday Gift Box
Avoid lineups and snow-filled parking lots whilst crossing off every wine lover on your list (so, everyone?) with this beautiful box of wines. Starting at just $59, a kwäf holiday gift box includes three bottles of sommelier selected wines, a booklet of tasting notes and food pairings, and a personalized handwritten note. You choose your box level—Great, Outstanding or Statement—and we’ll take care of the rest.
Wine Folly: The Essential Guide to Wine (kwäf wish list)
This new book by the authors of the award-winning website, Wine Folly, is being heralded as “the best introductory book on wine to come along in years” and we agree! Full of beautiful and easy to understand infographics (pictures!) this book is for anyone looking to gain a deeper understanding of wine in a fun and approachable way.
Give the gift that keeps on giving with a ClubK subscription. kwäf’s signature, 6-bottle specially selected seasonal pack will ship directly to your gift recipient's home, spreading holiday cheer long after the tree has been tossed to the curb. Our professional sommeliers taste hundreds of wines (tough job, we know) and narrow it down to these top 6, each from a different Ontario winery, to ensure you only get the best of the best this holiday season and beyond.
This is the perfect hostess gift. Specially selected, limited availability wines in our kwäf Exclusive lineups are as important to bring to your holiday parties as glad tidings and good cheer. Pick up our current offer, the Tawse 2012 Grower’s Blend Cabernet Franc; perfect for combatting the winter chills and sharing (or not) with good friends and family.
Bicycle Wine Rack (kwäf wish list)
Who doesn’t love wine and sustainable transportation? Now you can marry the two with this über stylish, Montreal-made, leather bicycle wine rack. Unless you’re giving to a renegade winter cyclist, this gift will have to wait for warmer weather to have its first outing but who doesn’t like to be reminded of summer? And drinking outdoors?
Decisions are hard, we know. Give a kwäf gift card and let the recipient pick their wines! Choose your denomination and you'll be sent a kwäf gift card straight to your inbox. You can forward it on via email, or print it out and include with your own card. Shopping for free AND receiving high quality wines to their door? Sounds like two gifts in one to us.
Missed the cut-off date for holiday wine delivery (December 15 in Ontario, December 10 elsewhere); we’re here to help. Our kwäf taste buds have selected some great wines available from the LCBO that will carry you through our office closing hours until we’re back again in the New Year, ready to dazzle with our 2016 kwäf lineup.
