The Discovery Collection Gift Review

$160.00 at If Only

Wine tastings are loads of fun, but the experience doesn't always translate well outside of a formal tasting room. This gift brings a heavily-curated wine (and cider and ginger brew) tasting to your living room. Premier wine styles from leading wine regions around the world have been selected to showcase the world of wine (and cider and ginger brew).

The best part? Because they're all half-size bottles, the perfect size for sharing a glass or polishing off a bottle on your own, you really can experience it like a tasting and try a little bit of a few things without worrying about spoilage or drunken abandon.

Wine Gift Review: Why go to a winery tasting room when you can try cult wines in a private wine cellar?

Private Cult Wine Tasting Gift Review

$200.00 at If Only

When the cost of one of these bottles is typically $300-3000, it's easy to see why mere mortals rarely have access to the types of Cult Wines being poured at this ultra exclusive wine tasting experience. That's why this wine tasting makes our list of best wine club experience gifts! At $100 per person for 2-12 people, this one-hour tasting will make you feel like you're among the wealthiest people in the world who can enjoy the most limited-production sought-after wines produced.

Bonus: the venue for this tasting is where Napa Valley's winemakers go to hang out with each other and it has the vibe of a late-night restaurant where the best chefs go to unwind after a long night in the kitchen.

Gift Details

  • Private cult wine tasting at V Wine Cellar
  • This experience takes place in Yountville, California (in Napa Valley)
  • $100 per person, a minimum of two people, a maximum of 12 people
