If you want to find a special gift for the wine lover on your list, you might want to plan ahead. It’s easy enough to find a decent $20 bottle of wine at your corner liquor or grocery store, but if you’re looking to really wow someone, you will probably have to find a specialty fine wine store. Even then, you’re not guaranteed success.
That’s where I come in. I may not be the ultimate authority on any particular wine, but I am an inveterate wine shopper and I do know a thing or two about the grapes. One thing that I’ve come to appreciate is that as a general rule, almost no one thinks that spending more than $100 on a bottle of wine is a sane thing to do. Even that is a stretch.
But $100 is a nice round number and a price point where you can really find some outstanding wine, so take a look at these recommendations. There’s a little bit of something for everyone here; luxury wines that are sure to wow just about any wine lover.
