If you are not so knowledgeable in the world of wine, here you will find everything you need to know to choose a good wine as a gift.
Why give wine as a gift?
The answer is very simple: tasting a good wine is one of the best pleasures in life. With friends, family, a partner or even in moments of relaxation, it is the perfect companion for any evening.
Therefore, giving a bottle of wine as a gift is an elegant detail that opens the door to infinite options. Red, white, rosé or sparkling, there is a wide range of possibilities that adapt to different tastes, lifestyles and occasions, which will allow us to always find the perfect wine for every situation.
How to choose a good wine as a gift?
First of all, we must define to whom we are going to give it as a gift: is it an amateur or an expert in the art of good wine? This will allow us to know if we should look for more exclusive wines and with more history, or more valued and easy to drink wines.
Starting from this point, the next thing to do is to define the occasion. Christmas, birthday, dinner with friends, romantic date or simply as a gesture of gratitude.
From Bodegas Monje we bring you a selection of ideal wines to give as a gift depending on the circumstance.
There is the perfect pairing for that candlelit dinner in the evening.

If the date includes white meats, pasta or cold meats, we recommend the Tinto Monje. It is the result of a blend of two of our wines, the traditional Monje and the Hollera carbonic maceration. It is a young, smooth and very enjoyable option.
