From expressive sparkling wines to full-bodied reds, there is something for every occasion and every person on your list.

For Cocktail Parties: Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio and Chianti Classico Riserva

When December’s calendar quickly books up with dinners and parties–don’t go empty-handed. A bottle of Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio and Chianti Classico Riserva make the perfect host gifts. Pinot Grigio is a perennial crowd-pleaser that delights with refreshing fruit notes of apple and citrus, and enticing florals. It is ideal as an aperitif and pairs well with hors d’oeuvres. When it is time to gather around the dinner table, Chianti Classico Riserva stands out for its food pairing versatility. With flavors of juicy red berries and spice and round body, it works with everything on your holiday spread from braised meat to roasted vegetables.

For Friend’s Get-Together: Santa Margherita Rosé

The holidays also offer a time to reflect on moments of the past year. For the friends who always warm your heart, revisit those memories together over a bottle of Santa Margherita Rosé. This elegant Rosé, inspired by the Venetian sunset, boasts a light color reminiscent of heart-to-heart conversations with your closest friends. With fresh floral aromas and delightful strawberry flavors, it may even inspire plans for future reunions, like that long-awaited trip to Italy you've always talked about.

For The Midnight Toast: Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore or Santa Margherita Sparkling Rosé

With a new year approaching, it is only natural to think about all the exciting moments that are on the horizon for your loved ones. For that friend who has an upcoming wedding, milestone anniversary, or major promotion, gift a bottle of Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore or Santa Margherita Sparkling Rosé. Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore led the way for high-quality Prosecco sparkling wine in the region. It is renowned for ripe pineapple and peach flavors, and lively bubbles. Or toast to all the good times with Sparkling Rosé. Scintillating and vibrant with red berry and floral notes and a round texture that’s enlivened by bubbles, the wine is perfect for celebrating every achievement, both big and small.

For Festive Dinner Parties: Masi Costasera Amarone

For the gourmand in your life, Masi Costasera Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG will intrigue even the most discerning palates. Hailing from the Valpolicella Classica region, this blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara shows Amarone’s trademark depth and complexity. During the traditional Amarone winemaking process, grapes are harvested and laid out to dry for several months until they lose about 35% of their weight, resulting in concentrated flavors and aromas. Aging in French and Slovenian oak barrels adds further complexity to the wine’s delectable character, as well as polished tannins. This full-bodied, dry red entices with its interplay of ripe fruit and savory notes, such as plum, fig and coffee. When your friend brings dinner to the table, this wine is a fitting accompaniment to their well-orchestrated menu.

For A Romantic Night For Two: Masi Campofiorin

Show your significant other how much they mean to you with a bottle of Masi Campofiorin Rosso del Veronese IGT. A wine as unique as your loved one, Campofiorin earned the nickname “Supervenetian” thanks to its ingenious winemaking process. Freshly harvested Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara are first vinified, then 30 percent of semi-dried grapes are added back to the base wine for a second fermentation. After, it is aged for 18 months in a variety of barrels. Ripe cherry and plum notes immediately jump out of the glass, but as the wine evolves, nuanced flavors and aromas, such as mushroom and sweet spices, reveal themselves. Robust and elegant, the wine is an ideal gift for a romantic dinner for two.
