Wine Enthusiast Staff Picks for the Best Holiday Gifts of 2023

Some things just make sense—like showering friends and family with wine-themed gifts. That’s especially true if you work at Wine Enthusiast.

This year, we gathered input from our team of on-staff oenophiles to determine the best wine gifts for this holiday season. From ordinary corkscrews and glassware to a family-approved Napa Valley Monopoly board game, here are our top picks.

What We’re Gifting This Year

Art Series Deluxe Wine Tower Decanting Set

“Opening a bottle of wine with family and friends has become such a fun shared experience with this decanter. I put this right in the middle of the table and watch the science of aerating unfold in front of everyone’s eyes!” — John Burke, Executive Director of Customer Experience

$129 Wine Enthusiast

Recanter Wine Breather Decanter

“We love to BYOB at our local restaurant for date night. After years of collecting, I like to make sure whatever special gem we bring has enough time to open for optimum enjoyment. I won’t take credit for this idea — one of our happy customers recommended using the Recanter Wine Breather Decanter to aerate the wine an hour before you leave and then rebottle it. We pop the cork back in and head to the restaurant for a perfect experience with one of our prized bottles outside of our home!” — Jacqueline Strum, President and Publisher of Wine Enthusiast Media

Wine Enthusiast x L’Atelier du Vin Oeno Corkscrew

“I adore the L’Atelier du Vin corkscrews and this new model takes the pleasure of a smooth opening to a new level! I never have to worry about tight corks because this corkscrew is strong as steel. It also looks beautiful on the table.” — Erika Strum Silberstein, President, Wine Enthusiast Commerce

Wine Enthusiast x Cheer Moda Electric Sparkling Wine Opener

“Our new Electric Sparkling Wine Opener is like a dream come true for me. I’ve always been a bubbles fan with a secret fear of opening a bottle on my own as I pictured corks flying and injuring my friends. Now I can enjoy sparkling wine anytime without any worries.” — Sybil Strum, Co-Founder and Chief Brand Officer

Kapoor, Vice President of Content

Full Grain Buffalo Leather and Sherpa-Lined 2-Bottle Wine Bag

“I use these bags to go everywhere. I love how you can disguise what’s in the bag and when you arrive at your destination and pull your bottles out you automatically become the coolest person in the room! The leather is so rich, and it just gets better with time. I’ve gifted them and people are always impressed. It helps that it comes with a wine opener too.” — Nancy Essapour, Senior Director of Merchandising
