Here are 7 wine gift ideas for this holiday season!
For the Sunshine Mom – Rove Estate 2021 Riesling
Sunshine moms bring light and warmth to all of those around them. That’s why our 2021 Riesling is the perfect gift for her. The notes of bright green apple and lime zest are as bright as her smile. And its aromas of stone fruits and poached pear are as sweet as the memories of her brushing your hair. Plus, a Riesling is a versatile wine, enjoyed all year round – just like your mom!
Want to impress her even more? Share with your mom some great food pairing ideas to enjoy with her bottle of Riesling.
For the Cigar-Loving Dad – Rove Estate 2020 Merlot
So last year you got your dad a box of those cigars he really wanted. But your mom wasn’t too happy about it – so now your dad is banished to the back porch whenever he smokes. And your mom has made you promise not to get him anymore.
So get him our barrel-aged Merlot instead. The black cherry, plum, and dark chocolate flavors mix well with the taste of tobacco leaves. And maybe if you bring over one of these dishes to pair with the Merlot, your mom will let your dad enjoy the cigar inside… Yeah, probably not.
For the Wild & Free-Spirited Sister – Rove Estate 2021 Gewürztraminer
Your sister has 3 different flower tattoos, an assortment of earrings, and never seems to mind when things don’t go as planned. And though her free-flowing approach to life drives you crazy, she reminds you to let go of control sometimes. Which is just like our Gewürztraminer.
The notes of grilled pineapple, mango, and ginger are as wild and free-spirited as she is. Plus, when you pair it with one of these dishes and share the Gewürztraminer, she’ll have a chance to convince you to book that trip to Thailand the two of you have been talking about.
For the Adventurous Brother – Rove Estate 2021 Pinot Noir
Your brother is like a Pinot Noir wine – popular, adaptable, and adventurous. So whether he’s backpacking through the Appalachian mountains or joyriding on the dunes of Arizona, he’s going to appreciate a bottle of this Pinot Noir. Not only will he love its versatility, but the Michigan cherries, cocoa, and clove may remind him of the time he went white-water rafting in Colorado.
And if you’re feeling adventurous, suggest one of these dishes for him to cook up for the 2 of you as he tells you about his latest plans.
For the “Go With the Flow” Auntie – Rove Estate 2021 Pinot Grigio
There’s something amazing about your aunt. You’ve been able to tell her anything since you were a teenager – she listens, offers some words of wisdom, and then allows you to go with your own flow. She’s a lot like our Pinot Grigio – well-rounded, pleasant, and a sparkle of acidity.
But this time offer some of your own words of wisdom with the Pinot Grigio: Tell her about some of the amazing food pairings she can try out with her wine.
For the On-Point Mother-in-law – Rove Estate Reserve Oaked Chardonnay
You’ve always been impressed with your mother-in-law’s ability to look stylish no matter the event. Even when you’re meeting for an early breakfast. You barely had time to brush your teeth – how did your MIL find the time to put together such a great outfit?
So why don’t you do the impressing this time by gifting her a bottle of our Chardonnay. The tropical, creamy palette of our 2021 Oaked Chardonnay will seem as on point as your MIL’s shoes.
Want to really impress her? Pick up a bottle of our 2018 Oaked Chardonnay. She’ll start to think you’re the one on point.
For the Sweetie Pie Friend – Rove Estate 2021 Select Harvest Riesling
Your friend is the epitome of the best type of friend: kind, thoughtful, and always there when you need her. Whether you need someone to help paint your bedroom or talk you out of getting a third cat, she’s the one you call – because you know she’ll show up every time.
And a good friend like that deserves something special and select, like our Select Harvest Riesling. The notes of lime zest, mandarin oranges, and sugared lemon peel are as wonderfully perfect and flavorful as your friend.
And why not show her even more appreciation by cooking up a recipe to pair with a bottle (or 2!) of our amazing Riesling.
