The Wine ConnoisseurFor the person in your life who partakes in the “spitting” portion of a wine tasting – and the one who doesn’t
The wine snob is easy to locate: Simply discuss that time in college when you drank wine from a box and watch for the first person who faints or the one who charges in your direction with an obvious intent to preach at you. Once you have located your passionate, fermented grape lover, accept that you will forever be the victim of drills on the best vintage from Napa to Bordeaux. Just accept it. Note that wine “connoisseurs” come in several degrees. It’s likely that the only one at the table capable of reading a wine menu may be granted that title but truly it’s the one with a wine budget that rivals the yearly mortgage you must tread lightly with. No matter the degree of connoisseur, skip the goliath task of selecting the proper wine and instead opt for gifting the tools that transform every glass into an experience.
