If you are looking for a special gift to give for Christmas we suggest you compose your Christmas basket with the wines, sparkling wines and products of our wine estate or choose to donate a voucher with one of our experiences.
Do you know where the habit of Christmas gifts comes from?
2000 years ago, at the time of the Roman Empire, in the second half of December great celebrations were held accompanied by banquets and gifts in honor of Saturn, the god of agriculture, coinciding with the winter solstice which traditionally began to the new year.
The feast of the Sun god was also held on December 25th, a very important god to whom the success of agricultural harvests was closely linked.
The Christian church could not accept pagan holidays so it established the Christmas celebration on December 25th but was unable to make us forget the tradition of banquets and gifts for all the family and friends which lasts to this day.
Christmas gifts with Monferrato wines
If you don’t know which bottles of wine to give at Christmas you can choose our Gavi and some reds that enhance the natural aromas of the native Piedmontese vines such as Pelvaro, in which you will discover the scent of white pepper and blackcurrants from Pelaverga, Larino with aromas of black cherry or Valino which has hints of spices and liquorice. They are all wines from the vineyards of our estate.
Christmas gifts with Marchesa sparkling wines
