Organic Wine Lovers Gift Guide
Perhaps you’re a wine lover who’d like to introduce your friends and family to organic wines and drinks this year. Or maybe you’re someone on the lookout for a special gift for a wine lover in your life. Either way, look no further than this list of our top bottles this year for your gift-giving inspiration!
Tips for Choosing Organic Wines as Gifts
First, set a budget. That will help decide whether you’re on the hunt for that one special bottle or whether you can pick a trio or more.
Second, try and think about the wines you’ve seen your special person enjoy in the past. Do they giggle over Gewürztraminer, go potty for Pinot or enjoy chilling over a glass of Chardonnay? The more you know, the easier it will be to find a wine or drink they’ll love.
Lastly, always remember it’s the thought that counts. The giving should be at least as much – if not more – fun than the receiving.
We have vouchers/ egift cards available as well if you’d like to leave things open-ended. The vouchers can be used to order via our website, phone or email.

How to gift wrap a wine bottle?
As environmentally friendly as possible!! If you have previously-used gift wrap, think about reusing it. If you’re creative, why don’t you decorate your own paper? Reusable gift bags are also a great option. And lastly, a bottle of wine is tough to disguise, so maybe it doesn’t need to be wrapped at all!
How much money should I spend on a wine gift?
No gift was ever worth over-extending yourself over. So, spend what you can afford and what you’re comfortable with. It is, after all, the thought that counts!
- Remember that year-round, Vintage Roots have pre-selected mixed cases on our website. These nearly always offer a modest discount.
