For many of us, wine is an integral part of our menus. There’s something uniquely joyful about a delicious glass of wine, whether you’re sharing a bottle with friends, family, or your partner. To help in your search for that perfect bottle of wine to give as a gift, we spoke with Harbour Wines and Spirits.

YOUR FAVOURITE CO-WORKER

Show your appreciation for your favourite co-worker with the Sutter Home Merlot, perfect for a quiet evening at home after the hustle and bustle of the workday. It is smooth and velvety with flavours of blackberry, plum, cherry, and hints of smoke and spice.

BEST FRIEND

Just like the Sutter Home Pinot Grigio, your best friend is zesty with a light and refreshing spirit – the best addition to your life. Its fresh, floral aromas and refreshingly light flavours of juicy pear and bright apples are always in season.

YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER

Give your significant other the gift of the Chateau Ste Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon. For a partner who is dependable, easily loved and the perfect companion, this Cab Sauv is the ideal pair. They will appreciate the inviting, complex and structured nature of this wine. It also pairs well with your favourite beef or pasta dishes.

MOTHER-IN-LAW

For your mother-in-law, the Château de Berne Romance Rosé is the ideal choice. It has floral and berry aromas with peaches and strawberry flavours on the palate. This is the wine that patio and poolside sipping were made for – she’ll love it!

FATHER-IN-LAW

You admire your father-in-law for his bold, strong and smooth demeanour. The Trivento Reserve Malbec is the perfect complimentary wine to give him as a gift. This Malbec is graceful on the palate with a good body and a lingering, velvety finish. You could also gift the Chateau Ste Michelle Chardonnay. You admire your father-in-law for his ray-of-sunshine spirit. The Chateau Ste Michelle Chardonnay from the famously sun-soaked vineyards in Columbia Valley is the perfect wine to give him as a gift. It is rich and creamy with juicy citrus and apple aromas and subtle oak accents.

YOUR FAVOURITE CLIENTS

Gifting wine is a sophisticated and professional way to express appreciation to your favourite clients. For many, wine is an acquired taste, and inexperienced palates may need to start with lighter wines, like the Birds & Bees Pink Moscato. It is the perfect balance of freshness and sweetness with aromas of violet and roses.
