Wine Tasting Gifts: 12 Wine Tasting Gifts to Give Wine Lovers

The Best Wine Tasting Gifts in 2022

During the pandemic, in-person wine tasting ground to a halt. For those of us who loved to go wine tasting, it hurt. Thankfully, several clever wineries and wine sellers figured out how to help us go wine tasting at home — and the trend continues.

This page features wine tasting gifts with mini bottles, half-size bottles, wine flights, and online wine tastings — both recorded and live. I think virtual wine tastings should outlive the pandemic.

You might also want to give 12-bottle and 24-bottle wine samplers marketed as Wine Advent Calendars.

Please note: if you buy a gift after clicking links on our site we might earn a commission.

White Wine Blind Tasting Kit — Half Bottles

$49.00

White Wine Blind Tasting Kit — Half Bottles

One-Time Blind White Wine Tasting Kit or Add Future Subscription Shipments

Why This Gift

Successfully blind tasting — where you don't know which wine you're drinking — is considered one of the hallmarks of a knowledgeable wine drinker (this is how Sommeliers are made). While most of us are never going to have enough wine knowledge or train our palates well enough to be 100% successful at blind tasting, it IS fun to try our hands at.

Budding wine geeks will eat this up and enjoy this white wine tasting gift immensely. It's both educational and fun.

A couple of notes:
When you click the "Customize" button on the Palate Club's website, your gift is automatically switched from a One-Time Tasting Kit to a One-Time Tasting Kit + Custom Subscription. That's fine, you can put it back, or give a generous, ongoing gift of wine tasting.
