If you’re looking for a fun way to celebrate and/or a great excuse to make someone feel extra special (or if you just want to give yourself and someone special a great excuse to drink wine), these gift baskets and tasting sets have got you covered.
Wine Country is not just a place in Napa, it’s also the name of a new site we’ve recently discovered. They’ve been manufacturing and selling unique wines and gift baskets for over 30 years, and work directly to source from the best wine grape growers and winemakers in California.
We also spotted gift baskets from Martha Stewart’s wine company. And if Martha approves, you know it’s goodl=.
Here are eight of the best baskets to give this season, whether they’re a fan of classic reds, something sparkling or a fresh rose.
1. Kiarna Sparkling Wine Gift Set
