I’m Dreaming of a Wine Christmas – Part 2

For: The Couple Who Has Everything

Details: These friends are nearly impossible to shop for. Everything you pick up that you think they’ll like, they already have.
Gift: Super T
Why: Betcha they’ve never had this wine! It is an exclusive Ponte red wine made in the classic Super Tuscan style by blending Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. There is a reason it is so immensely popular with Ponte’s guests: it’s absolutely delicious and a crowd pleaser. You friends will want to keep this bottle to themselves (you might want to snag two so they can at least share one).

For: The Friends Who Celebrate Hanukkah

Details: There’s lots of “l’chaim” and “mazel tov” going on in this house!
Gift: Beverino, Chardonnay, Syrah
Why: Although not kosher, these great Ponte wines will pair perfectly with the traditional foods of the Festival of Lights!

  • Chardonnay – Delicious with potato latkes and applesauce.
  • Syrah – will complement beef brisket wonderfully.
  • Beverino – similar in taste to Manischewitz Traditional Kosher Wine, this semi-sweet red is perfect slightly chilled before, during or after dinner.

For: The New Year’s Hosts

Details: These pals are offering up their home to you for one of the liveliest celebrations of the year! Get ’em something nice.
Gift: Moscato and Rose Spumante
Why: New Year’s Eve is a time for celebration and what better way to celebrate than with a little bubbly? Moscato is a refreshing sparkling wine with floral aromas and a crisp sweetness. Rose Spumante tastes like a sweet kiss with bright spritzy flavors (perfect for the stroke of midnight!). Your hosts will love the strawberry and pineapple flavors.

For: The Friend who Doesn’t Drink Wine

Details: He’s the eternal designated driver, or has just never cared much for wine. Either way, you love him all the same.
Gift: The Ponte Restaurant Scallion Oil
Why: The wildly popular Scallion Oil was originally served before meals with bread at the restaurant. So high was the demand, that Ponte decided to bottle and offer it to fans who claimed they could “…eat a whole bottle!” Besides being a great dipping sauce, this superb concoction makes a delicious marinade and salad dressing.
