Style & Decor
The holidays are just around the corner and with them comes the fun of finding the perfect gifts for all of the special people in your life. We’ve made the search just a little bit easier by compiling our picks of all the best gifts for any wine lover. Get ready to put a smile on the face of all of your beloved oenophiles, and happy holidays from our train to yours!
Okay, we had to. Give the gift of a one-of-a-kind experience in one extraordinary package. There’s no more thoughtful gift than one that lasts forever with a lifetime of memories, and a journey on the Wine Train is one you never forget. Buy a gift certificate in a denomination of your choice or buy a voucher for a specific tour. It’s a gift they’ll remember forever!
For the Foodie, we suggest the Gourmet Express. Enjoy a multi-course gourmet meal aboard our elegant vintage train through Napa Valley.
For the History Lover, we suggest the Castle Winery Tour: After a gourmet lunch aboard the Wine Train, indulge in a private tour and tasting at the meticulously constructed Castello di Amorosa, a 13th-century style medieval Tuscan castle and winery.
For the Family-Oriented, we suggest the Famiglia Tour: Hear the stories and taste the passion of families with deep roots and profound connections who have been making wines for decades in Napa Valley.
Can’t make it to Napa Valley any time soon? Don’t fret. The Napa Valley Wine Store & Gift Shop has just what you need to whet your appetite for Napa wines at any time of year. With delectable wines at every price point, you’re sure to find the perfect bottle or two for everyone on your list.
Corkcicle Air - $24.95
The Corkcicle perfectly chills your favorite wine (Illumination Sauvignon Blanc California 2016, anyone?) to perfection every time. This nifty gift allows you to pour the perfect glass straight through the Ccorkcicle - aerating your wine as it pours to bring out all of the delicious aromas and flavors.
There’s no better pair than wine and cheese. This holiday season, gift your wine-loving companion a deluxe monogrammed cheese board that will become the focal point at any gathering. We love this version by Cathy’s Concepts made of Acacia wood and complemented by a personalized, monogrammed slate accent.
An Elegant Decanter - $40.00
A decanter is a must have for any bon vivant! Let your favorite California Cabernet breathe and add a touch of elegance to any tabletop with this handsomely priced decanter by Luigi Bormioli.
GoVerre Portable Wine Glasses - Set of two $44
These festive, portable, and practical wine glasses are sure to be a showstopper this holiday season! GoVerre glasses fit half a bottle of wine and have a sip-through, secure lid, allowing you to pack your favorite vintage for a picnic or party. The durable glass preserves the taste and integrity of your wine, and the silicone grip prevents heat transfer and provides a no-slip grip.
Vertical Lever Corkscrew - $39.99
Give the gift of a corkscrew that removes a cork in just seconds. This version by OXO works with only two easy motions, et voila! Perfectly uncorked wine. It offers non-slip grip for comfortable use, and includes a foil cutter for convenience.
Wine Tool Set & Rack - $215
This gorgeous display is as beautiful as it is practical. Give the gift of high quality wine tools to the budding sommelier in your life this holiday season. This set by L’Atelier du Vin includes a corkscrew, cork opener, foil cutter and two stoppers. The beech display rack will add a touch of elegance to a kitchen counter, or the wall of a dining room or wine cellar.
This charming wine stopper is both timeless and on-trend and makes the perfect stocking stuffer or secret Santa gift to add a festive element and a bit of sparkle to any bottle.
