Vinebase Holiday Gift Guide

It’s that time of year again - the joyous holiday season. Festive music rings in the background and aromas of baked goods, cinnamon spice, and wholesome meals waft through the air, everywhere you go. Is there anything better? 

We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite Vinebase wines, perfect for gifting this holiday season. 

The best part? You can use our new gifting tool to send the wine to anyone - all you need is a name and phone number, then we’ll handle the rest. Perfect for clients, friends, family… anyone, really!

OUR FAVORITE SPLURGE BOTTLES

Give the gift of incredible, high-end wine with beautiful stories and passionate people behind the bottle. Sure to make a statement.

  • Llamas Family Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon, 2014 - Harvested from the iconic Stagecoach Vineyards, Pritchard Hill Block I2B, this block is characterized by volcanic and well-drained soils at high elevation. This bottle is a true collector’s item and can be enjoyed for years to come. In the glass: ripe black fruit, vanilla, mocha and baking spice aromas that unfold into dark chocolate, sage, dried red fruit and a hint of forest floor. Only 300 cases produced. ($130)

  • Matthiasson Cabernet Sauvignon, 2018 - Steve and Jill Klein Mathiason started Matthiasson wines in 2003 after working for many years in the sustainable agriculture and local food movement. For them, winemaking is a natural extension of farming. For this Cabernet, 2018 was as close to a perfect year as possible. The lack of heat spikes maintained juicy acidity and fresh fruit flavors to balance the beautiful concentration and richness from the longer ripening period. 794 cases produced. ($68)

  • Lost Toy Cellars Single-Vineyard Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon, 2016 - Lost Toy Cellars = Unadulterated minimally processed expression. With a wine program that’s focused on single vineyard selections and minimal processing during production, you could say that Lost Toy Cellars understand the value of unadulterated expression. Like a true kid at heart. Their Cabernet Sauvignon is full blown and compelling with cascades of intense blackberry and hauntingly rich blueberry preserve. 350 cases produced. ($100)

OUR FAVORITE BUNDLES

Gift-giving made simple. Choose a bundle to maximize enjoyment and let your recipient explore something new.

  • AJA Vineyards Holiday By the Ocean Bundle - Sick of the snow? Give the gift of Malibu this holiday season with this bundle from AJA Vineyards. Crafted by a father-daughter team, AJA Vineyards makes pristine wines from the hillsides of their Malibu Estate. Enjoy their delicious and rich Bordeaux-style red blend by the fire, the succulent Syrah with holiday dinners, the fan-favorite Sauvignon Blanc with cheese & crackers, and the beautiful, floral and delicious estate rosé with just about anything! ($180)

  • Rockets Red Winemaker Select Bundle - Handmade wines by a U.S. Airforce Veteran. Support a veteran-owned business this holiday season and sample the best of the best from his assortment. This two-bottle bundle includes the rosé and red Rockets Red Wines is known for. ($59)
