Still Looking for Christmas Gifts?

Wineries can be a source of gifts for the right person. While all winery tasting rooms offer wine for purchasing, some go even further with an array of gifts available for purchase. Shoppers can frequently locate wine bottle stoppers, corkscrews, coasters, and shirts with wine quotes. If you are undecided about what to give someone for the holidays, why not give them a gift card from a local winery? 

In Virginia, two wineries are also offering some innovative and expensive ideas for those who truly enjoy wine. These two wineries are located in Northern Virginia not far from Washington DC.

Wine barrels at Pearmund Cellars, Virginia

An email from Pearmund Cellars in Virginia suggested:  bottles of award winning wine, pre-boxed and wrapped Virginia’s Heritage wine, chocolates made with Pearmund Cellars wine (in a dark chocolate wreath), wine club gift certificates, and Virginia Wine-opoly. The email suggested stopping by the winery to enjoy a glass of wine and cookies while enjoying your holiday shopping. 

If you are curious about the Virginia’s Heritage. The description on the Pearmund Cellars website says, “The blend was aged in 32 wine barrels in the Effingham Manor winery, and bottled in August to produce 10,000 bottles, with the number of bottles representing each of the original 10,000 vitis vinifera vines planted in Virginia by the Virginia Company, 400 years ago. The limited-edition wine is presented in a commemorative box featuring a representation of the 1619 Virginia Company seal to reflect its Colonial roots. The wine bottle label is printed on thin sheets of birch wood and ribbon shavings of the same wood surrounding the bottles as packaging.” $62.00 shipping included.

Pearmund Cellars located in Broad Run, Virginia is just a short distance from Washington, DC. Get away from the crowded stores and stop by Pearmund Cellars.

Another Virginia winery, Vint Hill Craft Winery in Vint HIll, offers alternative ideas for Christmas with an ‘ADOPT A BARREL PROGRAM’ from which one can choose between a full barrel of 288 bottles and a half barrel that holds 144 bottles.

Also  think about the Home Winemaking Class which involves four Saturday sessions at Vint Hill.

The third option at Vint HIll Craft Winery is a gift of the ‘Clandestine’ Wine Club  which entails receiving three bottles of wine in January, April, July and October.

Vint Hill is also offering “The 12 Wines of Christmas” which includes 12 wines for $239.

Of course, why not purchase a bottle of wine, add a colorful ribbon and say “Merry Christmas?”
