10 Wines to Buy for Holiday Gifts With the holidays in full swing I know we’re all looking for gifting guidance. Sometimes the hardest gifts to buy are those for the people you know the least: your doorman, hairdresser, letter carrier, or assistant. While cash is always appreciated, adding a nice bottle of wine personalizes the gift in a way cash never could.

Understanding that we all have different price levels at which we are comfortable, and noting that these gifts do add up, I’ve pulled together 10 wines under $15 that are delicious and would be fine gifts to give someone this holiday season.

While some may think that $15 is a lot to spend on a bottle of gifting wine, others might think $5 is way too low. The truth is that all of these wines are great values, representing the best of their varieties, regions, and price points, and thus are worthy of consideration as a gift, or for keeping!

    Actually, Alsace is far from the Loire valley. that does not change the quality or appeal of this wine.

    Of Course you are absolutely right. My mind had already gone ahead top the De Chanceny Cremant de Loire, the nest wine tasted.

    Thanks for pointing this out and note it has been corrected.

    Can you easily find these in the Indy area?

  • I love those Cavas for $5. Freixenet and Codorniu can be found at rock-bottom prices also, and they're always sure to satisfy. Just the price for the times. (Economy times and Season's times.)

    I have been on an Alsace kick lately. I will definitely have to try this sparkling. I was thinking, I know you can get the whole page with descriptions but on wine lists like this if there was a printable page of just the X number of wines by names I might use that. It would cut down writing lists. I dunno see what other people think.
