Many non-wine lovers will always ask why someone would put so much time and thought into just a drink. But for the wine lover, the reason why constantly being on watch for another fine vintage of wine is very obvious since the pleasure derived is so great. For these individuals giving or receiving a fine gift basket is the ultimate in thoughtful gift giving.
Wine is so much more than just something to drink since it has so many other characteristics that make it a total body experience. Wine is a sensual experience for the user that will engage most all of the senses within the human body. A good wine will also perfectly accompany your meal while also encouraging social conversation and interaction with those in the group. Wine also stimulates the intellect of those who truly study its characteristics and composition for a better understanding.
For the wine enthusiast it is so much more than a drink and more like a way of life. While some may question this hobby those who enjoy tasting various wines with friends understands just how exceptional well thought out wine baskets can be to give and receive.
