‘Tis the season for families and friends to gather around the table for feasts of festive food and fine wine.
But, if you aren’t the person responsible for hosting Thanksgiving, be sure to bring something along to show your gratitude. What can you bring that won’t break the bank but shows you care? Wine. Wine is always the answer!
It doesn’t have to be an expensive bottle of wine, but there are a few tips to consider when gifting your host. If you know the person well and know exactly what wine they drink (she only drinks a buttery Chardonnay, or he loves a jammy Zinfandel), then, by all means, get them what they like. If you aren’t sure of their favorite varietal, opt for something local. There are so many wonderful Lodi wines to enjoy during the holidays. You don’t even need to wrap the bottle, just tie a bow around its neck and adorn it with a personalized tag or thank you card. Your host will appreciate your gesture, and you can guarantee you will get an invite again next year!
