As Christmas nears, excitement builds for sunny days full of great food and catching up with family and friends.
But Christmas can also pose a stressful challenge when it comes to buying gifts for our loved ones. What do I buy? Where do I find that? Do I have the time to go out and look for something?! Maybe I should just get them a Dollar Value Gift Voucher and be done with it?
Happily, these questions needn’t give you sleepless nights any longer. We’ve put together the definitive Montalto Christmas Gift Guide for lovers of wine, so you know exactly what to get that hard-to-buy-for person in your life this Christmas.
Montalto Off The Beaten Track Experience
A brand new experience at Montalto, we take you beyond the cellar door and share the stories of our wines from the source. Join our wine expert for a sneak peek of some of our most iconic vineyards at Montalto estate: Lake Block, home of our sparkling rose; North Face, the source of our multi-award winning The Eleven Chardonnay; South Face, where you’ll find our much-loved Pennon Hill Pinot; and Red Hill Block, our revered Single Vineyard pinot noir vines.
Price: $45.00 per person
Montalto Pennon Hill Pack
The Montalto Pennon Hill Pack includes a bottle of 2016 Montalto Pennon Hill Chardonnay, and 2017 Montalto Pennon Hill Pinot Noir. The Pennon Hill Pack is a great gift idea for cool climate aficionados, with the Pennon Hill Pinot Noir winning a Gold Medal at the Royal Adelaide Show 2018 and the Pennon Hill Chardonnay collecting Gold at the Royal Sydney Show 2017. A great ‘Montalto Essentials’ Gift, if you will.
Winesave Sommeliers’ Choice Wine Preserver
Thankfully there’s now a gadget to ensure that you never again waste a drop of delicious Montalto wine. Winesave is an inert, odourless gas that prevents oxygen reacting with wine and causing spoilage – allowing you to keep a bottle in perfect condition for many days – even weeks if you’re particularly strong-willed – after opening.
Feed Me in the Piazza Gift voucher
For the food lover in your life, the “Feed Me in the Piazza” Gift voucher provides the perfect foodie experience at Montalto Piazza. The Piazza Café is all about sharing: food, wine and good times with loved ones. Connecting with each other in the beautiful surrounds of Montalto’s kitchen gardens, overlooking the vineyards and sculpture trail, while enjoying the very best of the Piazza menu and a bottle of Montalto Estate wine.
Price: $155.00 for two people
Georg Jensen Wine Carafe
An absolute must-have for wine connoisseurs. Inspired and authentic, this state-of-the-art set allows the wine lover to celebrate his or her passion to the fullest. From the corkscrew opening the bottle with the class and style it deserves, to the wine pourer that aerates as it pours (creating a richer bouquet). A beautiful gift for Christmas.
Mornington Peninsula Discovery Tasting Gift Voucher
No matter if you’re buying for a wine newbie or seasoned veteran, the Montalto Mornington Peninsula Discovery Tasting Experience will introduce them to the difference in varietal, site and winemaking in producing world-class cool-climate wines. The day begins in the Montalto Wine Experience room overlooking the estate vineyards, before moving down to the beautiful Piazza Cafe, where a casual shared lunch and a glass of estate wine are provided. Wrap things up with a lazy stroll through Montalto’s contemporary sculpture collection for the perfect end to the perfect day.
That wraps up our six best gift ideas for that wine lover in your life. If you’re still in need of more amazing gift ideas, be sure to go to our Montalto Picnics and Experiences page for the full list of ways you can treat that special someone to a wine adventure here at Montalto. On the other hand, if you’re overwhelmed by all the amazing Montalto gift possibilities, you can always get a Dollar Value Gift Voucher from our store, so the lucky receiver can make the choice themselves!
