Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and if you’re still looking for a present for that special someone, look no further! While conventional items like jewelry, chocolates and flowers are good gifts, it’s likely you’ve gifted them before and are looking to try something new.
Nothing says, “Happy Valentine’s Day” better than wine, because you can’t drink flowers! So why not give a gift that you handcrafted yourself with love, or better yet gift an experience that the two of you can share in together? Handcrafted wine makes for an extra special gift for a loved one, and it’s easy to do!
Head into the RJS Craft Winemaking retailer closest to you, select a varietal of wine you know they enjoy with the assistance of the wine expert, craft it with their guidance, bottle your wine and finish it off with customized labels and shrinks for an extra personal touch. As this process can take anywhere from 4-8 weeks and Valentine’s day is much sooner – we would recommend that you purchase a gift certificate for a craft winemaking experience instead. It is a fun activity that you can do together, where you will learn and try something new, meet new people, and you will walk away with 30 bottles of delicious wine that you made together!
In addition, some stores will allow you to sample your wine while bottling, paired with cheeses and meats – so be sure to inquire if this is a service they offer when you book your appointment!
Then enjoy your handcrafted wine over a romantic meal for two, or enjoy your wine with friends and share the story of how you made it – it makes for a great conversation piece!
Happy Valenwine’s Day! 😉
