As I sit here on my computer working on our Christmas newsletter I start to think of Christmas wine gifts. What is the best? what is the worst? We've had them all. Glasses, bottle openers, vintage wines and ports, aprons etc. It is amazing some of the awful wine we have recieved here at Galafrey as a gift. Not to mention a dear friend, he gets fined by his local wine club each time we arrive at the wine club because he brought a cask wine to dinner at a winemakers house! Some one also gave us a bottle of Matues rose once. In fact I have been given alot of dodgy rose in my life. Personly I am a big fan of magnums. Recently I was given a 2001 Heytesbury ...yummo. I got a Krug and numerous other french champagnes for engagement pressies. Still have the Krug...must open it sometime! Would love to buy my baby boy Jack something for his birth this year?? got a 6 litre of Peter Rumball sitting in my cellar as well. And a Magnum of Verve. Ofcourse I have the complete collection of Galafrey's finest...a gift to my self. Got some lovely Riedel Glasses for wedding presents and some very fancy champange glasses to go with the Krug. I constantly give my husband nice liquors when I am stuck for gift ideas...wiskey, cognac, amegnac etc. Of course some decanters over the years. Wine such a great gift!
