Christmas Wine Gift Guide 2020

November 20th 2020

As the season of goodwill and merriment, 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 a difficult year, everyone deserves that.

If you’re looking for inspiration as to the perfect wines to gift as Christmas presents, look no further. Our 2020 Gift Guide breaks down our top six recommendations for festive presents for wine-lovers.

bacchus english still wine perfect for christmas

1. Bacchus


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, meaning it will sit nicely on the Christmas table.


charlotte may rose a summer wine for christmas

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 ideal Christmas gift for the lovely ladies in your life or anyone you think deserves a spot of sunshine in the cold winter months.


Pinot Noir perfect christmas present

3. Pinot Noir


A classic accompaniment for a festive cheese board or a succulent Sunday Roast, 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.


Water Meadows White Wine - perfect Christmas present

4. Water Meadows


With a crisp and citrusy, zesty flavour, the Water Meadows white wine is sure to be a Christmas hit… the perfect gift for men or women who prefer a softer wine. Thanks to its very delicate and gentle body, we’ve found it to be a particular favourite of those who aren’t regular wine-drinkers but like to enjoy something special on occasions.


Nethercote Hill - a red wine Christmas present

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.


Madeline May Chardonnay

6. Chardonnay


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. With only 500 bottles available, your gift would be an exclusive treat that few others would get to enjoy.
