Gastronomista Gift Guide - The Oenophile

1.  These days good wines come in all forms - bottles, boxes, bags, but so unsightly for the table!  We love this House Wine Carafe made from hand blown glass to present your house wine in style.  It even comes with a glass funnel to help you fill it.  Genius, we say.  $58

2.  18th Century inspired pocket corkscrew that folds up!  $54

3.  Simple and compact decanter / aerator.  $20

4.  We here at Gastro HQ love colored glass - especially these black wine glasses.  $43 for 4.

5.  Any onephile knows that one of the best things to serve with wine is cheese.  Keep your cheese fresh with a fromage cloche.  $54.

6.  We hate those terrible black plastic bags from wine stores - bring your own tote - this one with two compartments perfect for a bottle of red and a bottle of white.  $22

7. Mid-century wine rack that looks just as handsome empty as it does full.

8.  Learn more about wine!  Wines of the Southern Hemisphere by Mike Desimone & Jeff Jenssen is an epic encyclopedia of incredible wines from the southern half of the globe.

9.  Another tasty treat to serve with wine - chocolate!  Go with the best - Mast Chocolate.  $40 for 5.

10.  Hand crafted bent walnut carrying case perfect for a bottle of wine, glasses, and snacks.  Great for outdoor concerts, picnics, and excursions into the countryside!  $475

11.  For when you need to transport a bottle by bike.  $34

12.  Handsome agate cheese plates. $60
