There are many times a lovely bottle of wine is the perfect gift. But these days, more and more drinkers are embracing an alcohol-free lifestyle – temporarily, or permanently.
So, what about gifting a delicious deluxe bottle of Edenvale alcohol-removed wine? And when would that be appropriate and appreciated? Here are some ideas.
A gift for the host or hostess
You and your partner have been invited to dinner and you know that the host or hostess is abstaining from alcohol. You’ll probably bring a bottle of wine for yourselves but why not bring a special bottle of Edenvale wine for the non-drinker? A bottle from our new Expedition Collection might be a wine they haven’t tried before, so it will doubly be appreciated.
Pronounced ‘verr-de-ho’ and originating from central Spain, Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc is characterised by its light, bright colour and hints of fennel and grapefruit aromatics. It’s a perfect partner with most dishes.
Our Tempranillo Sauvignon Blanc is the emblematic Spanish varietal. With cherry and vanilla aromas and notes of blackberry bramble and fig, the addition of Cabernet Sauvignon enriches the fruit flavours for a full, rich finish. Match this wine with meaty mains or Mediterranean pastas.
We’re here to support you!
Chances are you know someone who is taking a break from alcohol. They might be participating in Febfast or Dry July or just seeking to change their drinking habits temporarily or permanently. A gift of Edenvale alcohol-removed wine shows that you’re there for them and ready to offer practical and moral support. Sober socialising can be a bit of a struggle at first, but a gift of Edenvale wine will encourage them to party on, without FOMO.
Why not give your sober curious friend or relative a six-pack selection of Mix & Match Edenvale Piccolos? A great way to sample the Edenvale range, these 200ml Piccolo size bottles are available in your choice of Sparkling Cuvee, Sparkling Rosé, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Congratulations on the new arrival!
Boy or girl (or twins or more!) it’s traditional to ‘wet the baby’s head’ – usually by imbibing a bottle of bubbly. But if the new mum is breastfeeding, alcohol is probably still off the table. You can still help her toast to the baby’s health by gifting a bottle of Edenvale Premium Reserve Blanc de Blanc – she will appreciate being given something just for her (instead of another soft toy for the baby!) This luxe-looking bottle is also a perfect bring-along or gift at a Baby Shower.
Welcome to the neighbourhood!
New folk have moved in next door, and you want to introduce yourself and make them feel welcome to the area. A bottle of wine is a great gift in this situation – but you don’t want to assume that they are alcohol drinkers. Perhaps alcohol is incompatible with their faith, or they are simply non-drinkers; you don’t know. Fortunately, our alcohol-removed wines are enjoyable to drinkers and non-drinkers alike (and we have the testimonials to prove it!).
What to give them? Red wine or white wine? We suggest you play it safe and proffer a bottle of our Edenvale Sparkling Rosé. With rich fruit flavours, and delightful aromas of rose petals, redcurrant and berry fruits, this award-winning wine is bound to be welcomed by any newcomer.
For the connoisseur exploring mindful drinking
Previously, you would have bought the wine connoisseur in your circle an unusual varietal or rare vintage. But now that person is exploring mindful drinking and reducing their overall alcohol consumption. You can still bring them a bottle to appreciate. Even the most discerning palate will be impressed with our Edenvale Grenache Shiraz Mataro. This generous wine displays heady aromas of violet, pastille raspberry and vanilla, with subtle hints of orange zest, charcuterie, and sweet spice. The bottle and labelling are as sophisticated as its contents.
These are just a few ideas for occasions when giving a bottle of Edenvale alcohol-removed wine is sure to delight. Let us know times when your Edenvale gift has been gleefully received – just enter in the comments field below.
