California has a long-standing reputation of being an amazing source of wine. California wine gift baskets are a tasteful, delicious, and popular gift item around the holidays.
California is the state is the leading producer of wine in America, accounting for roughly 90% of all wine made in the United States. It’s not just about the amount of wine either. The soil diversity in California means that wineries produce some truly amazing products.
I live here. We have wines all the way in the south, dry terrain up to the northern, wet and cold counties.
These aspects are why California wine gift baskets are so fantastic. The baskets combine some of the best wine California has to offer with complimentary snacks and other items. You always end up with a gift basket that looks amazing and is sure to impress the recipient.
California Wine Gift Baskets
PS. Here's the Italian wine baskets list.
California Delights Fruit And Wine Gift Crate
You don’t often see fruit in gift baskets that you buy online, but this California Delights Fruit and Wine Gift Crate is an exception to that rule. The combination of fruit, nuts and other snacks creates a gift that looks fresh and amazing. The included California White Wine complements the selection nicely.
Wine Country Bounty Gourmet Gift Basket
Most wine gift baskets focus on the snacks and then complement them with wine. That’s not the case with this Wine Country Bounty Gourmet Gift Basket. The basket contains 3 different wines, along with a relatively small selection of sweet and savory snacks. While the style is unusual, it could work well. After all, you could pick up extra snacks from many different places.
California Classic Gift Basket
This California Classic Gift Basket follows a similar style to the previous example. This time, the wines come from different vineyards. The wines chosen might change seasonally, but the basket will always contain a merlot, a cabernet and a chardonnay. The entire gift comes in a keepsake metal box.
California Wine Corporate Crate
This California Wine Corporate Crate has a strong emphasis on quality. The items have been carefully chosen so that they complement one another and look good visually. The wine itself is either cabernet or pinot red wine from California. It will also be rated between 80-90 points and taste tested by The BroBasket. This means you can always be certain of good-quality wine.
Hobson Estate Trio Basket
As the name suggests, the Hobson Estate Trio Basket contains 3 wines from Hobson Estate. There is also a variety of other items included in the mix, such as chocolate caramels, olives, crackers and chocolates. A complimentary wine stopper is also included so that the recipient has something to remember the basket by (once everything has been consumed).
The California Wine Executive
Named The California Wine Executive, this gift basket simply looks amazing. The selected wine is Ojai Vineyard Pinot Noir. Wine glasses and a wine key are also included. There are various chocolates present in the mix, along with gourmet popcorn. The most unusual aspect is the addition of 3 cigars, along with a cigar cutter, lighter and cigar case.
California Chardonnay Gift Basket
This California Chardonnay Gift Basket looks good from the beginning, with a decent selection of appealing snacks and two bottles of California chardonnay. There is also the ability to add on glassware and/or cigars to give the gift a little bit more body.
Vintage Cellars Wine & Savories Serving Tray
Whoever designed this Vintage Cellars Wine & Savories Serving Tray knew what they were doing. The choice of savory foods and wine works so well. Even the colors match. The gift also comes with a round wooden serving tray and a serving knife, which holds all the pieces nicely.
Duo Delights Wine Gift Basket
This Duo Delights Wine Gift Basket offers a selection of wine and food from around California. The snack selection includes some sweet snacks and some savory ones, giving recipients the best of both worlds. The whole thing comes in a gift box that can be easily wrapped. That approach mightn’t be quite as visually appealing as a regular gift basket, but it certainly is more practical.
California Wine And Coffee Gift Basket
The Bro Basket always knows how to make good products and this California Wine and Coffee Gift Basket is no exception. The box includes a bottle of high-quality Californian red wine, along with chocolate, biscotti and 2 different types of coffee (only 1 of them is shown in the image). You can also pay to add on enhancements like a glass, flask or even an engraved bottle.
California Ultimate Gourmet & Wine Gift Basket
There’s a reason that this is called the California Ultimate Gourmet & Wine Gift Basket. It contains a substantial number of different snacks, including chocolate, brie, salami, cheese straws, smoked salmon and much more. There are also 3 bottles of red wine and a chardonnay included.
California Classic Wine Box
Gift baskets don’t need to be complicated to be popular. This California Classic Wine Box is a good example of that. It includes pepper jack cheese wedges, chocolate chip cookies and some crackers, along with a bottle of cabernet sauvignon. The combination is sure to be finished off in no time.
Eastpoint Cellars California Collection
Wine is certainly the focus of this Eastpoint Cellars California Collection. The gift basket includes 5 different types of wine, all from Eastpoint Cellars. There is also an extensive collection of snacks included, like cheese wedges, smoked salmon, crackers, mixed olives and much more. If nothing else, this is a gift basket that will take time to empty.
California Classic Wine Basket
A great thing about this California Classic Wine Basket is the appearance. The items all look good next to one another. The keepsake basket just adds to that aspect. You are able to choose to include a chardonnay and/or a California red. You can also add on personalized aspects, such as a ribbon that can be printed with a line of up to 45 characters.
California Harvest Deluxe
California Harvest Deluxe is a fitting name for this basket. Not only does it include 3 bottles of California wine, it also has homemade cheeses and other products from California. While it may not have as many snacks as some of the baskets on this list, you can be certain that all the items are high-quality and taste amazing.
The California Tantalizing Trio Wine Gift Basket
It would be tough to go past this Tantalizing Trio Wine Gift Basket. As the name suggests, it features 3 different bottles of wine, all from California. The snacks included are impressive too, such as shortbread fingers, sugar cookies and peppermint chocolate crunch. There's no doubt that this would be a gift to remember.
Napa Cellars Gourmet Wine Gift Basket
This Napa Cellars Gourmet Wine Gift Basket has just enough snacks to make it interesting, without being overwhelming. There is also a strong focus on high-quality snacks, including Jasper Ranch Almond Brittle and Rustic Bakery Crackers.
Toast Of California Wine Basket
If you want a gift basket that looks impressive and doesn’t break the bank, this Toast of California Wine Basket might be the one for you. The wines included are Soda Ridge Chardonnay and Mt. Josselyn Reserve Red. The website for the basket offers tasting notes for each wine, along with details about each individual snack.
California Dreaming Wine Basket
This California Dreaming Wine Basket feels like it is designed for spring. The yellows and greens simply combine well with one another, making the whole basket look fantastic. This gift includes 3 different bottles of wine, along with a selection of cheese, nuts and crackers, with some cookies and chocolate thrown in for good measure.
Beringer California Collection Trio: Wine Gift Basket
It's impressive how well this gift basket follows the golden theme. With 3 bottles of wine and plenty of snacks, this would be an especially good gift basket for a family. Alternatively, the large number of items would give a single person plenty of time to savor their gift.
California Riesling Gift Basket
This California Riesling Gift Basket is a less complex basket of wine that still manages to look impressive. This time it just contains a single bottle of Wente Reisling. A selection of sweet and savory snacks is included to round the gift out nicely.
Sparkling California & Artisanal Delights Gift Basket
This gift basket is interesting in a couple of different ways. The first is the colors. All of the items complement each other so well. Then there is the wine. This is one of the few choices that includes a sparkling wine. Let's not forget the snacks. There is a decent selection of these to choose from, including both sweet and savory items.
California Winery Gift Collection
This California Winery Gift Collection would be best suited for serious wine lovers. With 5 different bottles of wine, there is plenty to choose from. The wines also come from different vineyards. That aspect helps make this an especially appealing gift. Besides, if someone is going to enjoy California wines, it makes sense to experience all the state has to offer.
A Native Californian Basket
An interesting aspect of this A Native Californian Basket is the choice of snacks. Many gift baskets tend toward the same types of items. In this case, you’ve got either 1 or 2 boxes of chocolate, along with olives in glass jars and a few other items. While the style is similar to other baskets, it also manages to look more refined.
A Taste of California Gift
The orange theme of this A Taste of California Gift makes it a knockout choice. The basket is also generous, offering 3 bottles of wine and an assortment of related items. As the site mentions, the specific snacks and wines aren’t guaranteed. They may change with time and availability. Despite this, you’ll always end up with a tasty and well-presented gift basket.
I’m not entirely sure why this basket is called The A-List, although the purple does lend a touch of elegance to the piece. The color focus has also led to a slightly less common assortment of items in the box. That’s always a good thing, especially when it comes to gift giving.
California Tasting Tour
Calling this a California Tasting Tour just makes sense. The basket contains 4 wines, each from a different vineyard. The website offers tasting notes for the wines, along with detailed information about the various snacks. You’re even able to add on personalization, like an engraved cork or a personalized hang tag.
Sonoma Wine Gift Basket
I love the various snacks that this Sonoma Wine Gift Basket has to offer. Not only are there some unusual items, like French Onion & Goat Cheese Dip, Ploughman’s Chutney and Cranberry Sauce, but some of the package sizes are larger than normal. There is also the chance to add on various other items, including balloons, stuffed animals and more wine.
Napa Valley Trio
Including 3 wines seems to be a fairly common gift basket choice and this Napa Valley Trio does that combination well. There are 2 different wineries represented, along with a selection of less common snacks. I particularly like the inclusion of All-Natural Peanut Butter Cups in the mix. There are some accessories too, including a wine aerator and a wine opener.
