Many Texas vineyards, like Fiesta Winery or Hawk Shadow, offer wine club memberships. With a winery membership, you can give someone on your list the gift of wine deliveries, member only events and even complimentary tastings for months to come.

 

4. Dinner and a Private Tasting

Spend an evening with a loved one at a winery with a full restaurant and private tasting options, like Grape Creek Vineyards. This intimate experience will be both an indulgence and an opportunity for you to connect after the holidays.

 

5. Wine Accessories

Pair a bottle of wine with an accessory that adds joy to the wine drinking experience. Bottle openers, custom glassware, coasters and wine glass charms make a great gift to spruce up a true wine lover's bar. Try shopping while you sip at Texas Hills Vineyard’s expansive tasting room and retail store!

 

6. Wine Baskets

With 52 wineries in the Texas Hill Country area, there's no shortage of renowned local options. Create a gift basket with a collection of bottles from six to 12 wineries so the person you're giving it to can enjoy samples from all around the area in the months to come.

 

7. Wine Magazine Subscriptions

There are many quality wine periodicals in circulation, including Wine Enthusiast, Wine Spectator, Wine Maker and more. Consider signing up a wine fan for a subscription. This gift will continue throughout the next year and is a great way for a wine lover to learn more about their hobby.

 

8. Winery Apparel

If you share fond memories of visiting a winery with a friend or family member, consider commemorating the experience by gifting them a T-shirt, hat or another apparel item from that winery. Many wineries, like Spicewood Vineyards, have several options in their tasting room.

 

9. Wine Gift Sets

Some wineries, like William Chris Vineyards, sell pre-made wine gift sets. These no-fuss presents take the guesswork out of holiday shopping and are easy go-to options for any wine lover. And, to make things easy, they come in multiple size and grape varietal options so you can find the right gift for everyone on your list.

 

10. Winery Gift Cards

When all else fails, a winery gift card is a foolproof option. Not only will the recipient get to select the bottles themselves, they'll also get to enjoy a visit to the winery to use the gift card.

Keep these ten wine-themed gift ideas in mind this holiday season. Each one is sure to please the wine lovers in your life.
