#FavouriteThings Holiday Gift Suggestions | Black Hills Estate Winery

“In this series we bring you our #FavouriteThings Holiday Gift Suggestions which we personally recommend”

Yes, it’s that time of year once again. Time for you to get thinking about gift giving. We want to make it easy for you to give the perfect gift and so today we are launching our 2020 #FavouriteThings Holiday Gift Suggestions.

This year we are recommending the wines of Black Hills Estate Winery for yourself and for the perfect gift for friends or family members that love wine. Not sure which wine would be the best choice? No worries, Black Hills Estate Winery has a solution for you…a gift card. A timely and thoughtful way to give a gift that you know will be appreciated.

Here are two of Black Hills Estate Winery wines that we suggest:

2019 Viognier

The 2019 Viognier embodies a classic Viognier. With intense peach and mandarin aromas with floral (chamomile) notes and ginger, your mouth will be watering before you taste the first sip.

The palate is typical of the variety and is crisp due to refreshing acidity. Intense ripe stone fruit such as nectarines shape the palate and follows through for a long finish. The flavour intensity makes it a great partner for a variety of meals from summer salads to poultry, and fresh seafood. Best consumed chilled while in its youth.

$24.90 available online 

2017 Ipso Facto

The 2017 vintage of Ipso Facto is a blend of Syrah & Merlot, with a small percentage of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon as well. The nose opens up with aromas of bright raspberry and Bing Cherry, followed by a dusting of crushed violets. The palate echoes with notes of ripe cherry, black tea and cocoa on the finish. This elegant wine is structured with beautiful acidity and medium tannins that call for dishes with fresh tomato and soft cheeses.

At Black Hills Estate Winery, we are excited to host any groups of six adults or less. Due to new social distancing requirements, many winery tasting opportunities this year will be reflecting a smaller scale. While we’re keeping it small, we want you to have the best experience possible and keep safe!

Avoid the disappointment of being told we are fully booked, by letting us know 24 hours in advance that you plan to visit. This way our team can tell you what’s available and we can ensure that your wine experience starts the second you enter our doors!

Everything you need to know before you visit is here. (link to https://www.blackhillswinery.com/Blog)
