We all have that person in our life who’s straight-up wine obsessed — the type who actually understands body and finish, is always on the hunt for a good tasting room, or is often planning a whole meal around vino. But of course, being a wine lover sometimes is as simple as always having some quality bottles on hand in the kitchen so you can enjoy a glass (or three, if you’re a mom) after, or during, a long day.

Indulge a wine lover with a gift tailored around their number one hobby: drinking lots and lots of good wine (no Two Buck Chuck sh*t). From glassware to wine subscriptions, here are eight useful gifts for any oenophile.

Coravin Model Two Premium Wine Preservation System

If you’re debating about whether or not you want to open an entire bottle of wine just to have one glass, debate no further. Insert the Coravin Wine Preservation System on top of your bottle (with the cork in), and then simply pour out a taste, a glass, or however much wine you feel like drinking at the time. Because the cork stays in the bottle, you can preserve the bottle until you’re ready to drink it again, whether that’s hours, weeks, or months, and the taste of the wine will be unspoiled. The system comes with two Coravin capsules, allowing you to pour 30 glasses of wine.One reviewer said, “This is a good device for me because I am the only wine drinker in my household. I am not a wine aficionado or a character from the film “Sideways”, but I do enjoy and appreciate a good glass of wine at least two or three times a week, (especially with a meal). I can’t remember exactly how many partially full bottles of stale wine were dumped down my kitchen sink, but it was an awful lot. I just don’t drink all that much at a time, and often several days will pass between glasses. Even with the $20-$40 or so bottles that I normally buy, that is a lot of money poured down the drain. Of course the proprietary Coravin argon capsules cost $10 each which puts the cost of use at about $2.50 per bottle, but it is still cost effective even with a $20 or so bottle of wine. I find though that now that I own the Coravin, I feel the freedom to sometimes indulge in better, pricier wines without fear of them going to waste.”
