Holiday Wine Gift Suggestions from Andrew Lampasone of Wine Watch

Planning for the holidays can be a huge annoyance.You have to shop, clean, cook, entertain guests, clean again; all of which can be a major stress.

Of course, they'll still be going through a lot of stress, so you owe it to them to bring a decent bottle of wine to dinner.

It is, literally, the least you can do.
