Some suggestions from around the cyber-ether for wine-related holiday gifts:
• Less than $25: From the Reverse Wine Snob, who nicely mixes the practical -- the always sensible Vacuvin gift set, which has shown up here in years past -- with the silly. How about a life preserver for wine bottles?
• Less than $20: The legendary Sandy Silfven offers seven wines that provide quality and value, including a Tasca d’Almerita nero d’avola from Sicily, and we know how the Wine Curmudgeon feels about Sicilian wines. Best yet, she pairs the wines with holiday entrees.
• Not especially cheap at all: But anyone who ever watched the classic BBC comedy “The Good Life” will appreciate a Fortnum & Mason Christmas wine hamper. That’s what Margo would have done, of course.
