8 “trips” that make perfect gifts

FW

 

Spain is a country for wine lovers. When invited to lunch or dinner, Spaniards usually arrive with a bottle of wine – a safe bet for a special gift.

Wine has an emotional element due to its evocative powers, and makes the perfect present when we want to create magical moments.

At #Tourstapasandfriends we suggest the following moments:

Copas por España offers a nice-looking gift box that provides a sensory journey around Spain’s different wine-growing regions. Each wine comes with its own glass, so tasting sessions can include at least 6 friends. This playful and festive experience takes wine lovers on a voyage to areas including D.O. Cava, Toro, Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Navarra and the unknown Ribera de Queiles. A gift box for adults with curious and daring minds.

There are endless numbers of brands and varieties, therefore we suggest a small selection of the 8 essential wines, with different forms and prices.

Nit de es Garnatxes” is a box of 6 bottles filled with Garnacha wine from Montsant, allowing wine lovers to savour the Terroir effect, an absolute gem reserved for minds hungry for knowledge and new sensations. Ideal for tasting in a group or as a gift for extremely curious people.

For beer drinkers, we have a highly innovative option: Metros de Cerveza (Beer Metres). Yes, your eyes aren’t deceiving you! We’re suggesting a metre-long box with 14 craft beers from around the world. A real gift box that’ll last several days. If you’re after something smaller, we also have half-metre boxes.

Another option is the special series that the Bernavi vineyard, from Terra Alta and the digital artist and radio diagnostics expert offer in their “Petita suite en cinc moviments per a les quatre estacions” (Small suite in five moments around the four seasons). This box includes: 5 wines from the vineyard with numbered bottles, reproductions of the Javier Comas labels on sheets, and a triptych with the whole history of love that inspired these labels, which can also be framed.

 

For those seeking a different type of gift and experience, we suggest our Botanic and Fruits boxes, cocktail flavourings (apparently), which offer first class gin tastings if that’s what you’re after, following the instructions in the box.

For olive oil lovers, we recommend the aceites de los artistas (the artists’ olive oils), a journey around the different single-varietal olives. A gift to please everyone!

RHowever, if you’re looking for a special gift or for an important date, René Barbier, Espectacle 2010 is the perfect choice. A stunning, limited-production Garnacha, ideal with red meats, at a price of €113. We need to know in advance if you want to buy a bottle.

If you don’t want a liquid option, we have other ideas including our gift vouchers or our messages in a bottle, experiences bottled up to surprise your loved ones.
