Wine is a tasty way to lighten the mood at any get-together, but we’ve all suffered someone who took it a little too seriously. You know the type: she holds the cup aloft with three fingers, swishing the drink around the glass before wafting the aroma toward her nose. Pause. She takes the smallest sip, moving it around her tongue for what seems like days until finally pronouncing the flavor as–wait for it–“big”. All for a bottle of wine you picked up at Costco for $6.99.
Whether the finer language of this classy alcohol escapes you, or you’ve created your own major in the Origins of Wine in the Middle East, entertain the child in you with these clever wine-themed gifts.
