Great Gifts for Geeks After compiling lists for so many great wines to gift in 2013 I am left with a few wines worth recommending that just don’t seem to fit in anywhere. They are, for a lack of a better word, geek wines. Not that some of the wines that made my list weren’t geeky enough. These are simply wines that tend to fall outside the mainstream of wine appreciation, and as such don’t fit into the easy categories of my previous articles.

They are wines that may very well emerge into the mainstream, as for example Gruner Veltliner has after being a geek’s darling for many years. Though that is somewhat unlikely, seeing as the geekiness factor has been ratchetedup over the years and now focuses on not only the obscure, but oftentimes the rare as well. What follows are ten wines worth trying, and tracking down since they are of course obscure. They are perfect for gifting to your favorite wine geek being relatively unknown, delicious, and rich with history.
