DECEMBER 7th 2021
‘Tis the season of goodwill and joy, therefore, Christmas is the perfect time to gift your loved ones a bottle of something special. Wine makes a fantastic Christmas present, as you’re essentially treating them to a relaxing evening of conversation and flavour. After another difficult year, everyone deserves that, wouldn’t you say?
If you’re looking for inspiration for perfect wines to gift as Christmas presents, look no further. From Mulled Wine to our crisp rosé, our 2021 Christmas Gift Guide breaks down our top six recommendations for festive presents for wine-lovers or wine novices alike…
A celebration of English still wine, the Bacchus is the perfect present for fans of home-grown quality. Made from 100% English Bacchus grapes.
A gold medal winner at the Independent English Wine Awards, this sweet white wine offers fruity aromas of elderflower, accompanied by herbaceous notes with tangy green apple on the palate.
Partners well with white meat, making it the perfect accompaniment to your traditional Christmas Turkey dinner.
2. Charlotte May Rosé
Rosé is not just a summer wine, but a fantastic tipple to enjoy all year round. This particular rosé is a soft and delicate wine with subtle but sublime hints of berries.
Elegant and irresistible, it makes for the perfect Christmas gift for the lovely ladies in your life or anyone you think deserves a spot of sunshine through those cold winter months.
3. Pinot Noir
The classic accompaniment for a festive cheese board or a succulent Christmas dinner, Pinot Noir is a comforting and exquisite red wine.
With a complex structure and elegant tannins, as well as a triumphant smattering of French Oak, the Whitehall Pinot Noir was crafted from our outstanding 2019 harvest.
A perfect Christmas present for parents, neighbours or anyone who favours a medium-bodied red wine.
4. Mulled Wine
The true seasonal star of the list, a firm favourite that has to be in everyone’s sights this festive season.
A delicious and creative twist on a classic English wine. Our Rondo and Pinot Noir grapes have been blended with cinnamon and the essence of orange to bring you Christmas in a glass.
Enjoy while it’s hot for a truly authentic festive feel.
5. Nethercote Hill
With its rich ruby colour and golden label, this is arguably our most Christmassy wine here at Whitehall. A dreamy blend of Pinot Noir and Rondo, this red wine would be at home alongside a cheeseboard, meat platter or Sunday Roast – and is an exceptional accompaniment to poultry.
If you’re looking for something extra special this Christmas, our limited edition Madeline May Chardonnay ticks all the right boxes. This is a sweet, fresh and delicate Chardonnay, that is perfectly paired with white meats and pasta or simply to be enjoyed on its own.

We appreciate that part of the beauty of Christmas gifting is not just the present itself, but the experience of receiving it. That’s why we have designed our simply gorgeous festive wine packaging, available for £4.50 to create that special touch for someone special.
