Wine Gifts for the New to Wine

Suggestions for the Newbie

Here are some last minute holiday gift suggestions for the people in your life who enjoy wine, but are still a bit new to the subject of wine.

Wine All-in-One For Dummies
Wine All-in-One For Dummies price $18: I've had many people ask me what they should read to learn the basics about the wide world of wine. This book is my answer, it's not too specific, but gives a good general foundation to the reader - wine tasting, serving, storing, collecting, and buying.

Heard it Through the Grapevine: The Things You Should Know to Enjoy Wine
Heard it Through the Grapevine: The Things You Should Know to Enjoy Wine price $18: I'm a big Matt Skinner fan, especially after enjoying his out of print book "Thirsty Work: Love Wine Drink Better". This more recent publication is an excellent book for anyone at the beginning of their wine journey.

Wine Away Red Wine Stain Remover, 12-Ounces
Wine Away Red Wine Stain Remover, 12-Ounces price $10: Wine Away works, really, really works. This is an essential item for anyone who enjoys Red Wine. I even saw a gentleman in a gray suit, who attempted to spit his wine and ended up spitting wine all over the side of his suit! Thankfully, Wine Away made that nasty red wine accident disappear. The wine literally disappeared from his suit. Recommended big time - I have some too.

Hope this list helps. I have more gifts suggestions posted above.

Cheers!
