The Holiday Wine & Culinary Gift Guide

With the Holidays quickly approaching now is the time to start preparing and grabbing gifts for the loved ones in your family.

A rule of thumb I always use when thinking of the perfect give I want to share is would I want to receive that gift myself? I will only give people gifts that are items I would be ecstatic to receive (unless of course, they asked for something specific that only they may want or enjoy). This year I’m continuing my holiday tradition of sharing the Holiday Wine & Culinary Gift Guide for the Wine & Foodies in your life. Read more below!

Benovia Winery

Benovia Winery is a fabulous Russian River Winery I’ve fallen in love with over the years. They have a great assortment of Holiday Wine Gifts and one of my favorites is the Benovia 3 pack of wines for $150. Read more below!

Celebrate your holiday dinner with the flavors of the Russian River Valley. This trio includes Chardonnay and Pinot Noirs that pair with a myriad of dishes, including our curated recipe guide. Purchase the Benovia Winery 3-Pack of Wines here.


Another product all wine lovers NEED is a Coravin. I have the one that opens still bottles of wine and am super excited about their newly launched Sparkling Wine Coravin. Learn more below and shop online here. Save 10% with my referral code: CC230490 on

E St Cru Wines

As you may recall I finally had the opportunity to visit the Willamette Valley (Oregon) and fell in love. Their wines are stunning and the vibe is super laid back producing some incredible wines. It seemed fitting to include an Oregon Chardonnay in this year’s round-up of the best wines for holiday gifting. The Overt Chardonnay made by Winemaker Erica Stancliffe, who you can learn more about in my Interview with Erica here is lovely. It has rich flavors yet they’re not overpowering but they’re smooth and creamy. This is a Chardonnay that all Chardonnay lovers will adore! Learn more about Overt Wines and some of the other fun brands E St Cru is producing online here.

Fly With Wine

Another essential for anyone who travels like me and likes to bring wine with them is a travel wine suitcase from Fly With Wine. There are two different sizes, one which holds a case (the size I prefer) since I am usually packing for a week or two and a case is about what I’d want. Or, there is a smaller size that holds 6 bottles of wine.  Learn more about Fly With Wine online here, use the code JSF15 to save 10% (can not combine with other discounts).

JCB Wines

This elegant 3-bottle gift set includes one bottle each of our JCB Napa Valley Red Blend: “Zebra,” “Snake” & “Crocodile” and arrives packaged in a beautiful premium gift box.

This 2016 Cabernet-based blend comes from 9 vineyards across the Napa Valley. Sandalwood, Blackberry, and Nutmeg greet you on the nose. The Rutherford dust dances across your palate, with notes of dark cherry, chocolate, and hints of cedar, rose petal, and black tea. Bright acidity on the front of the palate leads to restrained power and a long lingering finish. Purchase JCB’s Menagerie Gift Pack here and use the code JSF for FREE SHIPPING.

J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines

For more than thirty-five years, J. Lohr has been an authority on Paso Robles-grown red wines. The Purely Paso Robles Gift Pack assembles three sensational “big reds” that rely on J. Lohr’s two most historic grapes from the region. J. Lohr Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon and J. Lohr Tower Road Petite Sirah are highly anticipated local releases every year. Newer to the portfolio is the, J. Lohr Pure Paso™ Proprietary Red Wine which combines Cabernet and Petite Sirah in a unique blend that speaks to the best of the Paso Robles appellation. This set comes shipped in a black gift box pictured with ground shipping included.

At $107 you get 3 bottles of wine including a Cabernet Sauvignon, Proprietary Red Wine, & a Petite Syrah. It’s quite a deal and let me tell you the J. Lohr wines are such a great value for the high-quality wines they’re producing. Purchase J. Lohr Gift set online here.

Morgan Winery

Morgan Winery is another fabulous Pinot Noir & Chardonnay producer, actually, they also make a divine Syrah which you can read more about in my Best Syrah Wines from the Central Coast blog post here and a Rosé I also adore. This is a great brand to gift for the holidays as they have fabulous gift sets. Two that are perfect for the wine lover in your life include the Gift set with 2 Wines (A Chardonnay and a Pinot Noir) and the Gift Set with 3 Wines. Purchase Morgan Winery Gift set online here.

Rombauer Vineyards

Another brand I’ve fallen in love with after harvesting with and getting more familiar with is Rombauer Vineyards. This Napa Valley Winery which many of us know for their well-known and adored Chardonnay also makes STUNNING Red Wines. The Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon makes a perfect Holiday Gift for the red wine drinker in your life. And the best part is it’s from Napa Valley but doesn’t have the absurd price tag you tend to encounter. At $68 this is beyond delicious, approachable, and makes a perfect gift!

Seppi Wines

When I think of holiday fun it always involved Bubbles and celebrations. What’s more perfect than giving the gift of Sparkling Wines? Seppi Wines is a brand I adore founded by my dear friend Kelsey Phelps. Not only do you get to support a female business owner and vintner you get to enjoy stunning Rose & Blanc de Blanc Wines. Shop online at Seppi Wines here.

Thanks to the featured wineries and culinary brands for partnering with me on this sponsored blog post. As always, I only write about brands and products I adore.
