I love the holidays—the food, the joy, the company, and, of course, the wine! I believe that wine brings people together, and while that’s true throughout the year, it’s especially true during the holiday season. Sharing wine, giving wine, toasting with wine, and sipping wine while talking with people may be acts of our everyday lives, but during the holiday season, they’re magic!

Good wine should accompany a celebration, but great wine deserves it. I choose wines to suit my mood: some are festive; others are simply delicious; still others bring people together in wonder and meditation; and all are memories in a bottle, waiting to be shared. All of these purposes drive me to find and to deliver the best wines to you, whether Italian or global, whether by the bottle or the case, whether in-store, online or through our wine clubs. Wine brings us together, not just for the holidays but also throughout the year.

The wines you find in this guide are the wines I select each day for Italian Wine Merchants clients. I offer wines that inspire me—it’s just that simple. I hope you will find your own inspiration within this 2019 Holiday Gift Guide, and if you’re having difficulty choosing that special gift, my staff can help you choose something unique for those exceptional people in your life. The holidays come but once a year, and we want to help you make them very, very special.

From my family to yours, I wish the very best to you and everyone you love –

Buone Feste,


Sergio Esposito
