Food and wine pairings are overrated. What I’m more interested in is pairing wine with books. Reading a romance set in Napa Valley? Enjoy it with a chilled white from Artesa Vineyards! Is your heroine traipsing throughout the French countryside? Toast her adventures with Côte des Blancs! (Okay, let’s be real. I’m mostly pairing my recent reads with Two Buck Chuck, but that’s fancy enough for my not-so-sophisticated palate.) There’s a reason that my book club jokes that we enjoy imbibing just as much as we enjoy discussing the books. If you’re in the same boat, these literary gifts for wine lovers might be exactly what you need for the bibliophiles in your life.
When a bookish friend has a birthday, I’m always wary of buying them a book. Unless I’ve double (or triple) checked their Goodreads, chances are they probably already have a copy of whatever I pick up. When a wine lover has a birthday, unless I know what their favorite varietals or vineyards are, I’m always afraid the bottle I choose won’t be to their tastes. These literary gifts for wine lovers are sure to delight their recipients without you having to know their every preference or scour their shelves.
