As connoisseurs of both, we’ve compiled the top ten reasons why Wine and Travel are perfect gifts.
#1. Gifting a great bottle of wine tells that special someone that you want to spend an hour or two with them; gifting an incredible trip tells that same person you want to spend days or weeks away alone.
#2. Wine lasts forever getting better with age; shared travel memories last a lifetime, becoming more precious with time.
#3. Italy, France, South Africa, New Zealand….all make outstanding wines. Not surprisingly, they also make incredible travel destinations! Coincidence, we think not.
#4. Uncorking a bottle of fine wine tells the brain that it’s time to slow down, take a deep breath and savour the goodness that life has to offer. Opening a Niche Travel envelope tells the brain the same thing! Doing these two things simultaneously is optimal.
#5. Buying a bottle of wine for yourself is nice; receiving a surprise bottle from someone you love – one you’ve been eager to try – is wonderful. Ditto for travel.
#6. Nobody ever bemoans the money they spend on wine or travel.
#7. Wine has a way of inspiring conversation, laughter, poetry and uninhibited creativity. Travel has a way of inspiring great conversation, rolling laughter, dreamy poetry and uninhibited rest and relaxation.
#8. A glass of wine per day has been proven to add years to your life. Travel has been proven to add life to your years.
#9. Given time to open up, rest and breathe – wine blooms for our enjoyment. Travel uncorks us…
#10. When the wine has been consumed and the bottle is empty there remains a lingering taste in the mouth and warmth in the belly. Similarly, the enjoyment of a great vacation is never restricted to the time away….upon return the fond memories leave lasting impressions of a life well lived.
