TASTE Winter 2022-23


The Adventure Box For the friend who loves to travel and try new things, arrange a collection of rare wines or spirits for them to explore. Or, focus on one part of the world and give them a taste adventure from the comfort of their home!

Te Entertaining Box Create a gift box for the home entertainer on your list. Select crowd-pleasing products for a dinner party: a classic red, a food-friendly white and a sparkling wine. If your're feeling generous, pop in some artisanal cheeses (and maybe some homemade preserves from page 64) and you have yourself a super thoughtful hosting gift.
