Word up: If you need last-minute gift ideas for the wine lover in your world, we’re here for you. The no-brainer present is a Carpe Vino gift card (the more “zeros” the merrier!). The same as legal tender, we’ll help your recipient select something that will paste a grin on their face. . .one that you can make brighter by investing five bucks in a gift sleeve with a chocolate insert from our friends at Raffiné, an absolutely amazing chocolatier in Newcastle. We also carry a nice selection of gift chocolates that make wonderful hostess gifts or a nice accompaniment to a bottle of Prager port. Click here to see our online inventory. (Smart money says: you would be prudent to wait until Monday before you purchase a gift card. . .trust me on this).
For something a bit edgier, how about Carpe Vino Wine Club apparel, either a t-shirt–in black or white in men’s and women’s sizes–or a three-quarter zip for men (large and extra large only), $25 and $40 respectively. The skull image is. . .well, killer. . . and not for the faint of heart. But if you want to wear your bad-ass, biker cred on your back, you won’t find a better outlet.
