A new option from Santa Margherita, this sparkling pink rosé is a delicious and festive choice for Valentine’s Day. 

The pretty rose-colored bottle alone makes it a perfect addition to your holiday table. Notes of white fruits, red berries, and florals make this a great pairing for East Asian, Italian, and seafood dishes.

Remove sulfates from your wine with Üllo, a new purifier for connoisseurs, or anyone who appreciates a nice glass. 

Designed to fit on top of wine glasses, decanters and carafes, the Üllo purifier removes sulfites and also aerates the wine. Simply pour through this little gadget and it filters out sulfites, which can cause headaches or allergic reactions in some people.

Trendy copper makes for gorgeous wine glasses. This set of 4 17 oz. glasses is also stemless and sturdy — perfect for the hostess on your holiday list.

The interior of the glass is durable stainless steel, and the exterior is plated with copper, which keeps beverages chilled longer than standard glass. A copper wine glass set makes a shiny, festive holiday gift!

We all know people who love nothing more than poppin’ bottles and sippin on bubbly. 

Sugarfina’s Dark Chocolate Champagne bears are made with Dom Pérignon Vintage Champagne and are absolutely delectable, especially when dipped in Parisian dark chocolate. The packaging is gorgeous too!

The Vintorio aerator is the perfect gift for the oenophile in your life. It fits directly and snuggly onto any size wine bottle, so no need to transfer wine into a separate aerator. It contains a large aerating chamber and air intake system to infuse your wine with the optimal amount of oxygen to improve the taste. 

The rubber stopper is tapered and ribbed to create a leak-free seal, and the acrylic pour spout is notched and ergonomically slanted for easy drip-less pouring. The aerator can be disassembled and run under water for effortless cleaning. (Of course, it makes chugging from the bottle a challenge.)

Best Gift For the Vino Aficionado

This marble wine cooler can actually double as a vase when it’s not chilling an adult beverage — score! 

Turned wood is an on-trend accent to the marble, which will keep white wine or rose nice and chilled cool for hours. This makes a classy, useful gift its recipient can use over and over again. Maybe pair it with a bottle for an extra special themed present.

Chandon’s Limited-Edition 2017 Winter Collection feature extra-special bottles designed by bag maven Rebecca Minkoff. Your significant other will love this fruity rosé, especially since it comes in such a cool pink prismatic bottle.

A brut classic is also available in the limited edition Rebecca Minkoff bottles, if she’s more of a champs gal. Pop the cork and celebrate the holidays!

You can’t get much more festive than this glittery gold bottle of sparkling wine! And libations from ONEHOPE truly promote the holiday spirit: each bottle of California Brut sparkling wine purchased provides 15 meals to a child in need. 

Each of ONEHOPE’s wines supports a different philanthropic effort. For instance proceeds from their zinfandel go towards veterans’ and troops’ causes, and the sauvignon blanc sales help environmental efforts. The sparkling wine glitter bottle is also available in silver.

Veuve Clicquot’s Champagne Brut is a great match for lobster (or other seafood), and fine cheeses. 

Making it a lovely option for Valentine’s Day meals. But do you really need a food pairing for quality champs? This bottle will be appreciated all on its own.
