Giving wine is chic. Champagne - even more chic. With a well-chosen bottle of wine or sparkling wine, depending on the occasion, you're sure to make an impression. And when it's complemented by the right packaging, you'll add the icing on the cake that both the wine and the person to whom we give the gift deserve.
Since ancient times, gift-giving has been linked to the very essence of man. It is by expressing feelings, showing belonging and love, or seeing ourselves in the eyes of others that we fulfil ourselves as social beings. Above all, giving connects us. Connecting with the people around us gives us a sense of meaning and satisfaction that enlightens the soul and brings out the best in us.
You don't have to be a great wine connoisseur to choose a really good bottle for a gift. Here are some ideas:
Gift packaging should support the choice of wine
You can't go wrong with a fine wine as a gift, and in Slovenia we really do have a many options to choose from. But don't forget that the package is also important, as it is an important element that completes the gift. If you have really taken the time to choose the wine, the gift packaging will make a significant contribution to the overall impression. The better the quality of the wine, the more elegant the gift packaging should be. It will definitively underline the character of your selection, whether through elegance or nature-orientation, for example, but above all it will underline the value of the product and, ultimately, your consideration of that value.
In other words, a wine without a special story in a gift bag without a special story can feel like you have just got rid of one bottle from your home wine shelf. When you've gone to the trouble of choosing, let the wrapping complement it. If you have an artistic flair, you're sure to have countless ideas for gift wrapping. But a sure-fire addition is the original gift wrapping from the winemaker or winery, especially when it comes to boutique choices.
At Medot, we have made it possible for you to buy gift packaging for our sparkling wines. This way, you can buy each of our sparkling wines with a matching cardboard gift box to accentuate the elegance. For more special occasions, you can choose a unique wooden box with Medot lettering to add a touch of tradition and prestige to your gift.
So, the promised tip for the end: always choose packaging that supports the contents of the gift. It should not be more glamurous than the wine or the occasion, and of course vice versa, if the wine is very special, so should the packaging. Your gift should be a unique story that will connect you to the person you are gifting in an unforgettable way.
