How To Choose The Perfect Wine Gifts For Different Occasions

Choosing the right gifts can be tricky, especially if you're not sure what the recipient likes. Here are some tips to help you with your selection process:

What Type of Wine Do They Like?

Sometimes understanding the type of wine they drink can help you decide on the perfect wine gift. If they are drinking red wine all day long then you want to get them a wine cooler because that's only designed to keep your wine cold. You can't get them a decanter if they drink mostly champagne because this type of wine does not require airing.

What Type of Wine Accessories Do They Already Have?

If you don't know them well then that would be hard to determine however if they are a close friend then you should have an idea of what they have. If they are just getting into the world of drinking wine then they may not have any accessories which leaves room for your to pick the perfect gift for a beginner.

Know Your Own Budget

This is an important step to help you not overspend and get a suitable budget you can afford. A great way to save money or expand on your budget can be group buying. If you're getting a wine gift for a friend ask your other friends or family to chip in some money. This can help expand your budget for a more expensive present rather than a single cheaper gift.

Get It On Time

Shopping online? Get your gifts ahead of time. Alternatively, if you can visit the recipient of your gift we can send it directly to them on your behalf. Our packaging are usually invoice free so you can rest assured that the price and the sender (you) will be unknown to the recipient.

Shouldn't I Get Them An Actual Wine?

At DadShop we don't directly sell wine however you can purchase a wine hamper from us here. Our wine-related gifts are sometimes better than just wine. Some people have a specific palate so it can be rather tedious or difficult to determine what a good wine is for them. Thus a wine-related gift for your wine enthusiast friend is one of the best gift ideas you can get them. Our gifts are usually novelty and rare so the next time you open a bottle of wine we hope one of our gift ideas can accompany you while you drink.

What Is Wine?

Wine is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented grapes. Yeast consumes the sugar in the grapes and converts it to ethanol, carbon dioxide, and heat. Different varieties of grapes and strains of yeasts produce different styles of wine.

The natural chemical balance of grapes is such that they can ferment without the addition of sugars, acids, enzymes, or other nutrients. Wine yeasts consume and transform the sugars present in grapes into alcohol. Now go forth and join a wine club and start your wine experience today.

What Are The Different Types Of Wine?

The type of wine is determined by the variety of grape used, the climate where the grapes are grown, how the wine is made, and how long it is aged.

The four main types of wines they are: are red wine, white wine, rose wine, and sparkling wine.

Red Wine

Red wine is made from grape juice that has been coloured by the pigment anthocyanin. This pigment is found in the skin of red grapes and is responsible for the red colour of red wine. The higher the amount of skin contact with the grape juice, the darker the wine will be.

Red wine is the most popular type of wine around the world. It is grown in many countries and regions, but it is especially popular in Australia. There are many reasons for this, but some of the most important ones are its taste, versatility, and health benefits. It also features a bolder flavour than other types of wine, which makes it a favourite among many people. It can be paired with a variety of dishes, making it a versatile choice for any occasion. Additionally, red wine is thought to have health benefits. Studies have shown that it can help protect against heart disease and cancer, among other things.

Popular wine types are Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Shiraz, and Grenache, just to name a few. Which is your favorite red?

White Wine

White wine is a type of wine that is typically light in colour. It is made from fermented grapes and has a lower alcohol content than red wine. It can be made from a variety of different types of grapes, including Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Riesling. It is typically served chilled.

White wine is popular with food because it's light, and refreshing with a slightly fruity flavour that enables wine pairing with ease. It's also easy to pair with food because its flavour doesn't overpower the flavours of most dishes. White wine is a good choice for both casual and formal dining occasions, and it's perfect for sipping on its own or paired with a light appetizer. Funny fact, Sherry (Fortified Spanish wine) is made with white wine.

Rose Wine

There are many different types of wine, and within each type, there are many different varieties. Rose wine is a type of wine that is made from red grapes, but the juice is not allowed to stay in contact with the skins for long, so the resulting colour is pink or light red. Rose wines can be dry or sweet, and they are typically light-bodied and fruity. The main feature of rose wine is its refreshingly fruity flavour, which makes it a popular choice for summertime drinking.

Sparkling Wine (aka Champagne)

Most people consider sparkling wine a popular celebratory drink because it has a light, refreshing taste that goes well with most foods. Champagne is a wine that has been carbonated, either naturally or artificially. The carbonation can be the result of the winemaker's addition of sugar and yeast before bottling, or of secondary fermentation of the wine by yeast in the bottle. It can also come in various forms like white, rosé, red, sweet, and of course champagne.

The process of making sparkling wine begins with harvesting grapes from vines that have been specifically cultivated for this type of wine production. The grapes are then crushed and pressed to extract the juice. The juice is then fermented with sugar and yeast to create a young wine. This wine is then bottled and undergoes a second fermentation, which results in the formation of carbon dioxide gas. The gas dissolves into the wine, causing it to become carbonated.

How Is Wine Made?

Wine is made by crushing grapes and then allowing the juice to ferment. The type of grape, the climate, and the soil all play a role in the flavour of the wine. The fermentation process can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.

After fermentation, the wine is then aged in barrels or bottles. The ageing process can take anywhere from a few months to several years. The longer the wine is aged, the more complex its flavour will which makes for a delicious wine. The taste of wine can be best explained by its combination of acidity, alcohol, body, and tannins.

Fun fact: Did you know you can pair wine with edible flowers?

Wine Quote of the Day: Love is like a wine, You know it's good and only gets better with time.

Where Did Wine Originate From?

The first wine was made in the Middle East around 6000 BC. The earliest evidence of wine comes from Georgia, where wine was made from wild grapes.

5 Wine Tastings Tips For Beginners

If you’re new to tastings, don’t worry – it’s easy to get started. Here are a few tips to help you enjoy your first wine tasting experience:

1. Don't Feel Intimidated by Experts or Snobs

You should not feel intimidated when tasting wine as a beginner. No one will judge you for drinking wine and no one will judge you for being a beginner at this. Follow the advice of the professionals, take your time and have fun!

2. Swirl & Sniff

Be sure to swirl the wine in your glass and take a deep whiff before you sip. This will help you better appreciate the wine's flavour by alerting your sense of smell to the wine's bouquet.

3. Sip and Slurp

Take your time when sipping wine and don't slurp it. Don't rush through your tasting experience. Take time to slowly sip the wine and enjoy it for its flavours. Taste, Swirl & Sniff again! Continue this process until you have tried all of the different types of wines that you want to taste.

4. Don't Over Drink

A common mistake most beginners make when tasting is drinking too much. You only need sips, not gulps. It doesn't take long to figure out if you like that type of wine or flavour. If you find your glass to contain more wine than you can taste it's perfectly acceptable to have your glass untouched or unfinished.

5. The Most Important Step: Spit & Rinse

It's very common to spit out the wine that you're tasting. Most professional tasters won't actually drink the wine while tasting is in session. However, if you are a beginner you can decide if you want to drink or spit your wine. However it's very important to note that you must rinse out your mouth to help your taste buds get the most out of each sip, you should always rinse your mouth with water after tasting a glass of wine.
